the initial story of the place burning? I never recall even seeing that story. I wondered why the place was boarded up, it had been recommended to me several times as being really good. Never got to try it. Hope this doesn't sink the place.

There are still two other Flames, one on Blue Hill Avenue (Grove Hall, I think) and one on Huntington Avenue in Brigham Circle.
