The B.A.R. strives to be ‘town’s bar’ in New England: Volunteers, local businessman help bowling alley owner start new business

NEW ENGLAND — Steve LaFramboise had a nice little thing going inside his bowling alley. He had turned a small corner section of The B.A. restaurant into a bar and lounge area where bowlers could gather.

It turned into the place to go in New England for those wanting to socialize while enjoying an adult beverage.

But, LaFramboise said, it was never anything more than a hole in the wall. In fact, he acknowledges, it wasn’t even much of a bar.
