I doubt you have ever had Papa Gino's (probably out of your price range), but if you can name a better pizza place in Fitchburg I will certainly try it if I haven't already. The fact is that only Papa Gino's uses 100% pure cheese for their pizzas, the rest all used oil based ****
Tim,

Pizza is one of those foods that can use a minor difference and appeal to different people. Everyone will have an opinion about the best pizza, which is why Fitchburg has so many pizza places.

In my opinion, Papa Ginos cannot even hold up against Pizza Hut, never mind the countless wonderful varieties of pizza made by family owned pizza businesses in Fitchburg.

Cleghorn House of Pizza is a place owned by wonderful people from Greece and they make wonderful pizza that puts Papa Ginos pizza to shame, and they have other meals that are great too!

and Papa Ginos is too expensive as compared to the competition.

To each his own...

Wow Renee...you go girl! I completely agree that it isn't good for others to mandate that a business not be allowed to operate just because someone will object to the product. If someone doesn't like porn, they don't have to watch it...pretty simple.

I had never tried the Parrot Pizza because I had heard bad things about it, so it was no surprise to me that they closed. It also isn't a surprise to me that Conquest is expanding if they have a market for their products. That is the nature of business...find a need and fill it.

The prudes will always try to use their judgement to dictate what everyone else should do, but most of us just ignore them.

I say good for him. Dude has a thriving business and he's able to expand. This is how smart and capable business owners take advantage of a down economy. He's successful, clearly he's smart and people are jealous. Personally, I would like to see this type of business be more discrete and less obtrusive, but it's his right to operate under the laws and I support any legal business that adds stability to the tax base in the city.

I can't wait to see people's reactions when he pulls the trigger on his plans to rebuild the Other Side into a three level porn palace.

If he leveled the existing building and built something nice to replace that eyesore on Route 12, that would be great. He will continue with his business no matter what some think of it, so I support him.

Never been in the place personally, but I think it is appropriate for any legal business owner to be allowed the right to expand their business if they see a need and they are responding to it legally and appropriately.

Fitchburg isn't a city that plays the NIMBY card nearly as much as surrounding cities and towns. That brings challenges but also proves that we are more open-minded and fair in allowing others the freedoms to live as they feel they need to live.

I'm not sure if it is appropriate to discuss rear entrances on a blog about an adult video store.

I also heard from Sean that they were working to join forces and build a multiplex.
That should garner some interesting buzz.

He doesn't own both, but Bill from the Other Side told me he has major plans for a three level reconstruction of his location. Not sure if Sean is part of that, but I doubt it right now with his recent plans for expansion. Makes sense to make it all in one spot though. Stop by, grab a beer, have a lap dance and pick up a movie. One stop shopping.

As Fitchburg's laws only allow these two establishments via a Grandfather clause they would have to expand, with council approval, on existing property.

Yup, me again. Have any of you ever been to the other side? I was there for the first time about two months ago. First of all I could barely find it because it doesn't exactly stand out from the "landscape". These women are not being exactly abused either LOL. They make a hell of a lot more money than their peers at the local fast food place. Why is this a problem for people? They are doing something completely legal to make a living. If folks want to throw money at them based on the fact that they look amazing then good for them!! Men, and many women enjoy visual stimulation. This is just basic human sexuality. I feel like my boyfriend and I should run a workshop. Good grief.-- Renee 42 y/o female

The thanks goes to you! I have been to the otherside and found it very entertaining. If you can look past the ridiculous high prices for a beer and the girls trying to dance with high heels and a recent C-section. Nothing in the world spells class like a naked girl shaking her 'gina over a dollar bill.

Since the "Other side" closed because someone drove a tractor thru the back of it during a bad divorce I think the adult video store will be a lucrative store. They should think about franchising.

What wrong with going to places like this. Both myself and my wife go to many of these places. and we been married for over 20 years. get a life nothing wrong with watching I think the people who talks bad about theses place should come out of the closet where they look at there tapes and books. Its part of life its been going for ever

I'm thinking of opening a shop down at the mall called "Dildoe's R Us". It will be great for the community and I'm sure the kids will love it.
