11 minute excerpt from Spike TV show about a man who helps "save" bars, in this case a place in Framingham, MA which has been in the news lately. Apparently the president's uncle was there last week for Wed. night "bone-oke" and he had an encounter with the local constabulary, who may or may not have acted "stupidly" in his opinion. Click link to see an 11 min. excerpt from the show. Read below for my own comments about going there about a yr ago.
Howie Carr list ping.
My onetime experience with this place was Aug 8 of LAST year, when NYC’s Gas House Gorillas, a funtime blues/R&B/rock band played. I was there on a Sunday night and enjoyed it. Got there about 45 min before “God’s favorite R&B band”, as they call themselves, took to the stage and I said hi to the lead singer (I play their stuff on college radio).
I had steak tips which were tasty, and a nice salad, with a beer. A bit later I munched on mozzarella sticks (really should have prob had them as appetizer but whatever) and had another beer or two. I stopped drinking at a certain time so that I’d have no problems driving home. Place seemed clean to me—maybe it went to hell a bit later, when this was filmed. The band was a lot of fun, interacting with the audience and the bar staff, etc. I caught some glimpses of the TV, where Yankees were beating the Red Sox, ugh. But I had a good time and the food and beer seemed
Again maybe it went to hell later on...I’ll say this: they just got a lot of free publicity.
Well I have seen some places like the 99 and Ground Round chains where they do have a bit of a family atmosphere but the bar sections are off away a bit from the family seating areas. Is a place being schizophrenic trying to cater to both?
It was mentioned they featured local bands. Maybe mostly yes, but the band I saw was from NYC. It was their first time playing Boston area...And it was said people stopped seeing bands there because there were a bunch of kids running around.
Profits don't mean anything if they're swallowed by losses! He doesn't know where his losses are coming from!
Once again, link to preview.
“Yankees were beating the Red Sox, ugh.”
Suspect list. Yankee fan. Ugh.
The “bars” in the 99 Restaurants I’ve been to are horrible. Bad copies of those in Chili’s or Applebee’s, and they don’t clean their beer taps. Nasty.
I haven’t had a problem with the 99s I go to, to be honest....btw some years ago there was a gangland hit at the 99 in Charlestown and some newspaper columnist (can’t remember who, Howie? P. Gelzinis?) wrote up a bit with the headline “Steak Tips To Die For”...
(Oh good heavens—it was the plagiarizer, Barnicle! Just did a search
>>Those who think red meat might be bad for you have a pretty good argument this morning in the form of four dead guys killed yesterday at the 99 Restaurant in Charlestown. It appears that the two late Luisis, Bobby, the father, and Roman, his son, along with their three pals, sure did love it because there was so much beef spread out in front of the five victims that their table-top resembled a cattle drive.
Raccoon, you’re one of the beautiful people. You jet-setter!
To think, I dined at the Bone before they were famous!
Mm, steak tips...
>>Law enforcement sources described both the victims and the suspects as local underworld associates with roots in the North End...Police said the table at the murder scene was crammed with food, including Luisi’s beloved steak tips.
Is that on older pic or a newer one? I can tell it’s the one in Fram.—note the WINGS2U phone number.
In the clip I linked to, that was how it looked when I went there last year. From what I can gather it’s now known a bit more officially as The Bone?
Maybe Jon Cary will swing by...if only Lovey would approve.
Grey Poupon if you please.
The very best eateries are always located right next to railroad tracks.
I think a new Berg Sportswear TShirt is being created!
Noooooooooooooooooooooooo, did I just hear Howie say Michelle will be sitting in for him tomorrow???????? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
only for 1.5 hrs thankfully

Illegal aliens ghosts in eyes of Democrats
By Howie Carr | Wednesday, August 31, 2011 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Columnists
The only thing that surprises me is that the town of Framingham reports that Uncle Omar is not registered to vote.
So what if the presidents half-uncle is an illegal alien? You think that stops the, ahem, undocumented workers? You know what they say: Theyre only here to vote for the Democrats that Americans wont vote for anymore.
Illegal aliens are the problem that dares not speak its name at least not in the Beautiful People precincts. Could the Globe have possibly given this story a bigger leaving-alone? We werent the first to ID him as the presidents uncle, but I did mention the drunken-driving arrest of a guy named Obama in my Sunday Herald column. Id heard about it Friday night on my radio show.
Liberals cant even bear to hear the phrase illegal alien. Ill give you an example. Yesterday, his family buried Matthew Denice, the 23-year-old American who was killed 10 days ago when a drunken illegal alien roofer from Ecuador allegedly ran him down and then backed over him in a pickup truck.
Milfords state senator is Richard Moore, a moderate Democrat. At least moderate enough to write a letter after Denices death to Gov. Deval Patrick, asking him to reconsider his position against a federal program that would prioritize the deportation of illegal immigrants with criminal pasts.
Thats from a newspaper story posted on Sen. Moores Web site.
On Monday, Moore makes a motion to adjourn the Senate in memory of Matthew Denice, who Im quoting from Moores citation was hit by a pickup truck driven by an unlicensed driver who has subsequently been charged with numerous violations of law including operating under the influence, failing to yield at a stop sign, and leaving the scene after a fatality.
Sen. Moore, what happened to the illegal immigrants and deportation?
Will Uncle Omar ever be deported? Of course not. Look what happened to his sister, Auntie Zeituni. Hell, she was on welfare when she was an illegal alien, before she even was granted asylum.
After he wins asylum, maybe Hollywood can give Uncle Omar his own reality show. They could call it Everybody Loves Omar, or Curb Your Immigration. Or CSI: The Chicken Bone.
Barack, I think its time for another beer summit. At the Chicken Bone.

Even here in the Global-Warming-Resistant Zone, hordes of illegals from Mexico and the rest of Latin America crowd the scene, along with illegal Chinese, and growing host of Africans in what passes for urban areas.
With Affirmative Action rampant in the public sector, those very chaps and chapettes who are supposed to be handling the problems actually become enablers. Anchor Baby Officer Jiménez just ain't gonna arrest illegal alien Mamá Jiménez. ICE Officer Gomez is for sure going to drag out the deportation process. (¿Tu piensas?) Illegal alien Muhammed Ungabo works for the city Water Department.
Affirmative Action. Oh well, "traditionally," at least Americans can still be Superintendent of Schools. Black Americans, that is.
Maybe we should start doing videos of aliens taking over our towns and cities...in the supermarkets standing behind gold-earringed, tattooed, iphoned welfare alien mamas buying lobsters and steaks with EBT cards, shreiking and yammering...
