Alternative Facts?

...nah, not really

I was reading an interesting article in the Cambridge Chronicle about the old Harvard Square Theater. 

The building is located on Church Street and I walk past it every week on my way to class. 

It has always caught my eye because of the beautiful nostalgic murals painted on the building's exterior.

Sonia

"A Place Of Love"

Sonia Sater wants the family’s newest nightclub, Sonia, to be “a place of love.” And judging by the amount of care and workmanship that local artisans put into rehabbing the much revered (and of course, closed), T.T. the Bear’s Place, Sonia’s will indubitably be a place of love.

Sonia Sater is the sister of Joseph and Nabil Sater who own the Middle East Restaurant & Nightclub and ZuZu’s in Central Square, Cambridge, Mass.
