Algebars is closing

Posted By on Wed, Sep 26, 2007 at 3:27 PM

Algebars, Burlington's high-tech second floor gaming lounge, is closing. After 2 1/2 years, owners Ross and Lauren Burrell have decided to call it quits. Ken Picard reports on it this week.

Some of their disappointed young clients are trying to keep them open. They've started a petition asking the city to fund Algebars as a kind of community center.

I can't find the petition online, but if you email me, I can send you the kid's email address. Or you could try contacting Algebars.

I'm bummed that they're closing. I've only been there a few times — mostly while reporting this story — but I've enjoyed looking up from Church Street in the dark to see the gleaming blue lights of Algebars. I guess if I want to play those fancy games, I've gotta go buy 'em myself now.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
