The FieldHouse closes today

  1. I understand the issue is one of those long and complicated stories, but that the root cause is that after Mr. Movies left, some of their pipes froze and burst, and the building owner didn’t cover the damages.

  2. BTW, any of you thinking about what to do for lunch, if they are indeed open, wander in and have lunch, and leave a nice tip. Buncha people about to be out of work…

    Seems to me like that space is jinxed. While it’s been renovated on the inside, and is a decent space for a bar/restaurant. It seems that nothing has stayed in there for more than a year. Just like the old Quiznos building.

    But if what Peter says is true, maybe the building’s owner is the reason businesses haven’t lasted there for long.

    Have they changed their minds? This new sign was in the window last night:

    The ghosts of Diamond Dave’s, Dad’s, and Quad’s have risen to save them?

  5. There was some talk about someone buying it and trying to continue it. I hope so — it’s the closest walking-distance place for lunch. (I don’t count McD’s.)

    p.s.: Griff, if they close, I want money back on the house, because a nearby bar was TOTALLY a key selling point. glare

  6. Peter, I have heard there are other bars within walking distance of Griff’s former house. One features frogs.

    Sorry, Peter. I don’t blame for wanting your money back on that house we sold you.

    I’ll see what I can do about influencing somebody to take over the FieldHouse or start something new there. I know some people who know some people.
