I had a function planned at Bainbridges in December, I already paid my deposit and everything. I never recieved a phone call or anything. I am furious and I cant get through to anyone!

It's the employees I feel sorry for. Most of the time they are the last to know. With the experience that these employees have, they should sign up to substitute in food services in surrounding towns. It's a way to bring some financial relief until another opportunity comes about.

Maybe after 6 months of the, yes we can of Obama, they found out no they can't.

I guess the stimulus package isn't good to save companies and jobs. Too bad it will cost our grand kids future to pay for this insanity!!

eh, no loss

way overpriced for food which wasnt that great really. I'd pay that kind of money at a place like Gibbet Hill Grill. I dont like being ripped off. I was not impressed with the food at all although nice atmosphere.

Oh come on you two, do you honestly believer that either of those fools had anything to do with this?

As much as people would like to believe it, presidents really don't have much control over the economy.

Take a history, civics or economics class.

It wasn't even that expensive. The atmosphere was great and the service was bar none and now there are families out of work now.$14,000 a month???? Who could afford that? Think about it.... Would you suggest $8 steaks? Some people are so dumb.

You are wrong. It started under the Carter administration.

Oh, that's very funny. How long did you sit at your computer playing with yourself before you thought that one up? Get a life. And...no he didn't, b/c that's the kind of girl you marry.:-)

Call the Mass Attorney General's Office and tell them what happened etc... and see if they can help you get your money back ...

Good Luck
PS did you just give a deposit or pay in full??

and it wasn't BUSH the ruined the economy its that people borrowed and charged too much and now the payment is due and people can't pay, plus inflation rose too high.... i know at my place if we do get a raise its mesley at the most 3% or less so we might get .50 an hour more...

which adds up to $10.00 see its not enough for the high gas and food prices not to mention clothes for the kids

I agree, the place was gross, the food was horrible and the staff was rude. No loss that they closed. How did they last as long as they did?

They should put something like a Dave & Busters there. That would be a great addition. To Sara: Tony & Ann's is moving onto Broadway Road in Dracut.
Dave and Buster's would be unreal...we need something like that or an Espn Zone. We don't even have one in Boston like most major cities. I'm going to camden yards in august and I cannot wait for Espn Zone. The dave and busters in providence is a great time also. Def like the idea
