THE OWNER OF the former Johnny Bang Bang's says a national restaurant chain has decided not to come to Quincy because there isn't a stop sign by the building.
You. Can't. Make. It. Up.

The national chain has not been formerly identified, but supposedly it's the Tilted Kilt. Fine. Bringing in a national chain with people who know how to run restaurants is not a bad idea, and the Front and Hampshire building is an awesome location.
I've played many shows with different bands in the building. I wish nothing but good luck to the guy who owns it because it is a very cool venue with a nice stage.
But read between the lines. A stop sign? You aren't coming to Quincy because of a stop sign?
Hopefully the Titled Kilt opens in West Quincy. Then we could get cheaper gas, cheaper smokes and upside down kilts all in one trip. All we'd have to do is make it back over the bridge and we'd be good to go.
