I know that this is off-topic for the Boston board, but also know that there are other Boston-area fans of this Springfield institution who will share my dismay. While perusing the Southern New England board to see if there was any mention of the Lucky Dog in Provincetown (see teflontom's post) I stumbled across a post saying that the Fort/the Student Prince is closing this coming weekend. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/980093
Sure enough, it's true.
I know that this is another local institution that was arguably a bit past its prime, but I loved the place in all its fusty glory, and I know that Jenny Ondioline will be sorry never to have a salad with their hand-mixed roquefort dressing again.
