What’s the saying…? Necessity is the mother of invention? Yes, that’s it!
During the strange times of quarantine life, social distancing and masks, some business will fail, that is a certainty. But some will get incredibly creative in order to survive and that is happening on old Route 1 in Saugus. At least, it’s hoping to!
Bob Wong, owner of one of Boston’s most famous eating and drinking establishments, The Kowloon, is looking to convert part of their large parking area into an outdoor movie theater and car hop service, pending town approval. The restaurant has long been a Boston tradition, serving up Asian favorites for 70 years.
Wong said, “It’ll be like a drive-in movie theater where you can bring your family and enjoy Chinese food, drinks and watch a movie, It’s basically an idea of adding onto capacity by having outdoor activities. You have to think of different ways to maximize your revenue.”
Saugus! Let’s do this! I’ll take the Saugus Chicken Wings and a Scorpion Bowl please. Can I bring my lawn chair?
