ON TONIGHTS SELECTMENS AGENDA : Request: Menotomy Grille, LLC d/b/a Menotomy Grill and Tavern a. Common Victualler License b. All Alcohol License c. All Alcohol Policy Amendment William A. Lyons, Owner/Manager, 25 Massachusetts Avenue oh this is too funny .So the former Politician who runs a school now wants to get into the Bar business. Interesting that he gets his brother who works for the town and has no Idea how to run a bar to sign up as the owner .I am wondering if there is a conflict of interest seeing that a town employee is going for the liquor license? This is way too funny

Hello! William A. Lyons is not related in any way to the person that you are referring to. Please have your facts straight. It appears that you are a fountain of misinformation. The Menotomy Grille will be an upscale eating establishment! Run by true professionals, that have a tremendous amount of experience in the restaurant business. Please take your head out of the sand. This restaurant will be exactly what Arlington desires.Please get with the program!

Robert my head is out of the sand . Who am I referring to ? Sounds like you put a little bit of that fat teacher pension your getting into this so called tavern .i am surprised you of all people supporting an alcohol establish , seeing that we were taught in gym class that booze and drugs werent good for us .. So which is it ? Or were you just telling us what they wanted you to say ? Well of I was wrong I am 1000% glad because the last thing I want to see is that person having anything to do with an alcohol establishishment . It would be like having a rat run a cheese factory ...

William A. Lyons is a former Arlington resident, that has been involved in the restaurant business, beginning with the House of Blues. First of all, a Gym is a place in a building. The name of the course is Physical Education. Secondly I have nothing to do with that establishment,Thirdly, I support restaurants that serve alcohol and the patrons drink responsibly. Fourthly, Health and Wellness Education is where you were given the information on substance abuse. A battle that we are still trying to win.

Physical Education ? Is that what they are calling it these days . See I thought it was called baby sitting so the teachers could have a break . All those Duck Duck Games you use to play with the kiddies is called Physical Education.. Wow see you learn something new everyday .. What about the sex Ed classes you use to teach ? Some kids learned but others I know didnt ..

Tim, it's kind of sad I can tell you're from Arlington solely on the lack of punctuation and spelling. Perhaps Mr. Bart's and the other teachers "fat teacher pension" would have been better put to use if you had listened. You're a clown.

Great command of The English Language!
Tim August 29, 2012 at 02:36 AM
Well Robert I didn't have the pleasure of attending Arlington Public schools. Although I did attend Minuteman Tech. I hope you are enjoying your retirement.. Stay well
Scott August 29, 2012 at 03:33 AM
Tim, maybe if you had attended Arlington public schools you would have received a better education. I would just like you to know that Robert was a great physical education teacher. I'm a born and raised Arlington townie and I will often frequent the new "tavern", I'm sure if you met me you would consider me a typical "Arlington booze bag" but I'm clearly more educated and successful in my career.

Still working every day! Roll Tide!!
Tim August 29, 2012 at 12:42 PM
Well Scott you must be proud of yourself , good for you . Now that I see Robert is retired at such a young age makes me wonder if their should be a call to stop all public employees pensions and go to 401ks like the rest of the nation .
Julie August 29, 2012 at 07:37 PM
Tim I think you should stop talking because you clearly don't know what your talking about.
Tim August 29, 2012 at 08:45 PM
Julie please let Daddy fight his own battles . Public pensions are a huge burden on taxpayers .. It's time all public employees go on 401ks .. Let's see how many people will want city or town jobs ...
