Andy's Angles: The Castle

The Sunday morning shootings at the Castle after hours club in Scranton were sad in and of themselves.  A young man lost his life.  A child will be born without a father.  Tragedy at every turn.

It was even more sad for those of us who remember the Castle as a really nice restaurant with good food.

I know times change.  Restaurants come and go.  The Castle grew old and tired.  It was nothing really special any more toward the end.  I remember hideous and slow service during my last visit.  It really was too bad.  The "Castle" name had value.  It had meaning.  It stood for something.  It was squandered.

All it stands for now is a place where you don't want to be late at night.
