Don't Know Tavern manager takes over Boomer's on the Hill
Gronowski, who is leasing the building, wants to make it a "cozy little brick oven-type deal," with exposed bricks, eight beers on tap and pizza, soups and sandwiches. He hopes to have it up and running sometime in the fall.
"Baby steps," he said. "We're opening it up some more. It's actually a pretty big place."
Gronowski doesn't have a name in mind, and is open to suggestions. Anybody got a good one? I hear "NADDs" is available ...
"It was like when you cut down a tree," he said.
Oh, and as for that nickname, it's actually not bar-related, Gronowski said. He played baseball in college (back when he weighed 155 pounds), and when he showed up for tryouts, someone said, 'Hey, check at the pipes on this guy.'
"It just kind of stuck," he said.
As someone who grew up being called "Sam I Am," I know just what you mean, Pipes. Thanks, Dr. Seuss.
