    I have this posted under retuarants too…
    Nick’s Pizza has been around since the 50’s first time I went in there I was 2 years old that was in 1957, then they served subs and pasta dinners. Nick made the best meatballs I have not till this day tasted any like them. In the late 60’s or early 70’s Nicks just had PIzza on the menu. No more subs or spagetti and meatballs with garlic bread.

    You could always identify a discarded Nick’s Pizza box if you saw it in somebody’s trash. Not only was the plain, unlabeled box distinctly rectangular as was its former contents. The most telling indicator was the semi-circular hole that Nick so deftly and swiftly cut in the top of each box, forming a partially open flap that I assume served as a cooling vent. His recipe was a one of a kind favorite. I enjoyed it so much that I walked there from Franklin St. in an ice storm through deep slush, just to satisfy my craving… One other pizza “haunt” for me was Bob’s in Market Square. Their sign was huge, covering the entire front of the building from the top of the plate glass windows to the roof line. Called the “Monday Special” two large semi-edible cheese pizzas could be had for I believe, $1.25 or $1.40… My appetite being what it was at the time made this a great bargain. I once challenged Danny Connor to an eating contest starting at Bob’s and beginning with the infamous “Monday Special”. We followed this with a loaded with “everything”, large roast beef sub. We walked up State St. to Ferlita’s and both got duplicate roast beef subs to go. We left them in their white wax paper wrapping as we walked off the food from Bob’s on our way to the river behind the old central fire station. Taking up stations on the stack of phone-poles that lay at the water’s edge, we slowly began eating our subs. About three very labored bites in, Danny looked me square in the eyes, said “you F—-ing win a–hole”, and ceremoniously and with great vigor, hurled what remained of the offending sandwich into the dark swirling waters of the mighty Merrimack…

“The Frolics Ballroom – In its heyday this place saw the likes of Sinatra, Liberace and Aerosmith. With more bands going to the club casino at Hampton Beach, the Frolics hosted low life acts such as GG Alin, which as I see it, was the nail in the coffin for this venue in the Mid 1980’s. Curtains please!”
