The New Midtown Sucks

2007 August 19

Remember that great old College Street bar, The Midtown?  Well the owner sold it recently and the new owners are making sweeping changes.  From basically firing the entire staff, to having the tables set with white linens and bottles of wine, to a prominent sign on the front reading “dress code in effect,” this place is nothing like what it used to be.  I rode my bike by there on Wednesday (which used to be their busiest night) and at midnight it was basically empty.  Pfft.
