We went last Sunday and really enjoyed the pace, the clientele and obvious energy change from the upstairs. We had planned to bowl but every lane in large bowling area was filled, mostly and surprisingly with families with small children, bowling, eating pizza and drinking soda or adult beverages. It was a nice sight to see. In the smaller section of lanes to the right of the bar, there was one lane open but evidently it had been reserved by a group of young women, so we couldn't bowl. The bar was very busy with Boston Bruins fans since the game had just started, so we decided to sit in the lounge area, and watch the game and have a few drinks before our dinner reservations at Burke's. We ordered a few appetizers and sat there and enjoyably watched the first two periods of an exciting game. We were ready to reorder another round to begin watching the third period when about 15 guys abruptly left the bar area and walked out. Then three couples who were watching the large screen TV in front left as the place started to fill up for what we thought was viewers wanting to see the third period. Suddenly and abruptly without any warning or announcement every TV station in the whole sports bar andbowling alley changed to the College basketball finals game. We had spent over $50 alone and just wanted one TV to watch the rest of theBruins game. When we asked the waitress she said she had no control of the stations. now while we really appreciate the enthusiasm of those who wanted to watch the final matchups of college basketball, the manger could have left one TV for those watching the Bruins. And someone could have made an announcement to that effect. It was so rude and unprofessional, and I'm sure most people who left felt like we did...kicked out. Too bad. They could make a few changes here to take better care of those eating and drinking in their establishment. Hope this serves as constructive feedback for management since we rarely complain or offer negative reviews. Life's too short. Just something to think about changing.
