Goodbye Bow & Arrow

Bummer, one of my favorite bars in Boston, the Bow & Arrow, is closing next month after 25 years. If you saw Good Will Hunting, you may remember the scene with the confrontation between Will and the Harvard snob. That was filmed there. What makes me sad is that building is being closed for renovations and when it reopens in a few months, the rent will be raised. The only tenants that will be able to afford the new space will be another chain restaurant or boutique funded by some mega-conglomerate with no character. Every day Harvard Square turns more and more into everyplace else.
