'MET' WITH SUCCESS -- Legendary club owner Lupo reflects on first year

November 5, 2011

PAWTUCKET — It was a little over a year ago — Sept. 9, 2010 to be exact — that The Met brought the music back to Pawtucket.

“You're always surprised how far people will come to see a show. We've had people from a 40 to 60 mile radius depending on the artist,” Lupo said. “Yet, I wish people from Pawtucket would think of it as a close location.”

November 2, 2011

Last Friday night, the Chieftains (3-3), who were visiting a Pilgrim team (3-3) that got socked in its three losses to Tolman, West Warwick, and SRA, found themselves dropping a 26-12 verdict.
