    Bummer.... Haven't been there much recently, but I'm sure they will able to find a new spot.

    Dang. Never got to visit the place, but I love the Armsby. Hope they find a cool new spot for it, I feel like there are plenty of opportunities around Worcester for that.

    Separately, did they abandon their plan to open a Mexican spot in Hudson?

    Which would be lets say, by end of November? A friend of mine said he drove by last week and said it looked the same as it did 9 months ago.

    there's still time, doesn't close until the beginning of next month. I'm gonna miss the food truck (MamaRoux) that was inside the beer garden as well. That place had some phenomenal food at really good prices. Great smashed burgers and fried chicken thigh sandwiches.

    It's nowhere near ready - It hasn't even started.

    Sad to see, I enjoyed hanging out there on the Green Street drag. This would have been great for pre-post Woo Sox, but I now see that the owners are kicking them out.

    Being orphaned of my state's baseball team, I'm just going to go ahead and blame Larry Lucchino for Dive Bar closing as well.

    I thought for sure I had been here once based on the name but after reading the article I think I must be thinking of someplace else since they only recently started serving food.

    The place I'm thinking of was very divey with a punkish vibe and chili burgers. This was probably in about 2013 or so. Google has been no help. Sorry to derail the thread but I'm feeling confused.

    This is a continual bummer- I really need a place in my life that serves authentic Mexican food with a good tap list. Anyone have a suggestion that ticks both those needs?

    Agreed - I longingly drive by, continuing to wait for literally any progress. I would definitely be interested in any mex&beer suggestions as well.

    I’m not an authority on Mexican food but I like the food and beer at Casa Verde in JP.

    Howling Wolf takeout at Notch doesn't suck.

    Nowhere near Hudson, but Lonestar Taco Bar (Allston & Cambridge) ticks those boxes forme. And the Allston location is adjacent to Deep Ellum.

    Cool- I lived in JP for ten years but haven't visited for a while. Heading in for the Lantern Festival and will check out Casa Verde

    If only they had the Deep Ellum tap list at Lone Star. That would be hard to beat.

    I mean, all you have to do is get up and walk through the swinging door to Deep Ellum. :wink:
