Farewell to Good Time Emporium

6/26/2008 07:00:00 AM
This is the 2nd time I'm writing this post. I wrote the whole darned thing and set it to publish and it disappeared. Strange. Anyhoo, here we go again.

I was pretty sad when they closed the Hooters in North Station. Not because of the food and not because they had hot waitresses, but because they used to show pay per view UFC matches on their tvs.

After they closed, the only other place I knew of to watch the fights was Good Times. Now that's disappearing too.

OK, Somerville, you wanted an Ikea in Assembly Square. But did you realize those rice paper light fixtures and assemble-your-own bookshelves would displace Skee-Ball? The Good Time Emporium announced it will close July 1 so landlord Federal Realty Investment Trust can demolish the building and make way for Ikea.

They're looking for locations to reopen, but if they don't - I'll just hafta forgo the fights cause UFC fights aren't worth $40.

PS. I was just notified that there is a Facebook Group entitled "Save Good Time Emporium." You can join it (here).
