Thirstys is a dive bar and I feel bad for the owner but it was a poor investment and a waste of money. Given the circumstances it will sell for less than half of the claimed amount invested.

The neighbors there are idiots though and should have thought things through prior to buying a property near a bar. The bar has the right to operate as a bar and obviously they have the proper live entertainment license and should be able to use it according to their permit without being harassed by the neighbors.

As with any story there is more to it than you are reading here. I hope whoever buys the property has deeper pockets and can afford to fight for what should be a matter of simple right to operate under zoning laws and permitted uses.

Stupid neighbors. Shame on you. You better hope I don't buy the place and I hope it keeps you up at night knowing that I will be putting in an offer.

You have no idea what you are talking about. The "guy" is not a guy at all and there was no attempt to make it a decent place. It was a young woman who decided to buy a bar in an established neighborhood and turn it into a loud nightclub with blaring music late at night with snot-nosed irresponsible and immature kids drinking until they end up puking and pissing in the parking lot on the way out. When you work all day and come home and put your kids into bed and finally sit down to relax the last thing you should have to deal with is that kind of crap outside your window. Good riddance!!
Bring on the bikers boat club. then we can say good riddance to whining neighbors that have to complain about something. next they'll complain about people looking at the lake.People are so small minded.

rob hynes go ahead and buy it, but you don't know what you are talking about period. For years it was a jukebox small town bar selling burgers with 10 cars outside nightly. Anyone who would purchase that place for say 300K would be a fool, putting 800k into it was just stupid. When you watch someone close a car door on their finger do you try it to see if the outcome is different? I just find your threat to purchase kinda, well stupid.

I bet they didn't mind the bar carrying some of the tax burden for them. Don't bitch when your property taxes go up accordingly. You should give more thought to where you choose to live.

Thirsty's is an awesome bar!!! I have only been there once and had a great time. The bartender and all patrons were great at welcoming the group I arrived with. This will be a loss to the community.

I sense I rattled someones cage. That was my exact intention neighbor. With any luck at all I'll be seeing you sson!

I had an offer in on this location before the current owners bought it. It sure was nice of them to fix it all up and get the live entertainment license for me. I'll buy it from them for a fraction of what I offered the previous owners being that nobody will have the cojones and deep pockets that I have to be able to make this thing a success.

My biggest motivation now is to piss off the neighbors. You thought you had it bad with this owner, wait until you have someone in there who knows their rights and has the money and know how to back them up!

What were these people thinking?? Why spend a dime on a biz. in a town that HATES you?! The town is quick to grab the money it cost you in lic. fees to set up but then cry when one LOSER neighbor complains! This Bar was in the area way before many of these people.While they made a mistake in selling to a minor(Don't police have Murders and Rapist to catch instead of sending minors that look 30 into these places?) They should still be able to make a living...Hell it cost you enough to open a place.No one will buy this place...all because of a few LOSER NEIGHBORS!! SAD!

Another business run out of this town- Way to go Tyngsboro! There goes more revenue for the town. It seems this lady bent over backwards to please the neighbors and selectmen and this is what happens. I wonder what business will try to come in next? It could be worse for the neighbors than Thirsty's ever was.

rob hynes if you are talking to me you are incorrect I lived up the road a piece for 24 years, moved out in 2008. But I don't believe for 1 minute that anyone with deep pockets would touch that place noway nohow. I'll bet that little sub shop brings in more money than that bar.

If you like the bar that's one thing, but don't say these people bought a house next to a night club because the format is completely different. I don't care I lived far enough away that it would not have effected me even when I was in Tyngsboro. Many moons ago I went to the Bell Ringer down the road from the old Banjo club right past the ten cars parkedthere to listen to the bands. Face it the town couldn't get it right if they tried, closed Mathews that brought tons of people from all over into town spending a lot of money. What a great move that was! But if you buy it Rob I will gladly stop in for a beer now and then and watch you curse the day! I'm the old red headed guy, hopefully still red.

First....we need that place to stay. Nothing like a keno bar. Have you seen the homes near there? Most of them aren't very well kept up. I think the nightclub is actually da jewel of the neighborhood.

Maybe a dumps, but its home sweet dumpy home too someone! I myself would have moved when Thirsty opened I'm to old to enjoy it! I would be looking to be near a Banjo club, burger and a beer I'm good! bit jealous of the happy crowd but it is what it is.
