PATRICK LYONS ANNOUNCES KINGS TO OPEN SECOND WEEK OF FEBRUARY IN BURLINGTON

Patrick Lyons is pleased to announce the opening of his fourth Massachusetts Kings Bowl America location in the newly established 3rd Ave. development at Northwest Park in Burlington, Massachusetts. This will be the largest Kings venue in Massachusetts, at 30,000 square feet and with a holding capacity of 700. These award-winning venues have established themselves as a popular destination for exceptional dining and entertainment in Greater Boston and beyond, with locations in Boston's Back Bay, Legacy Place in Dedham, and Market Street in Lynnfield. Kings also has locations in Chicago, IL, Orlando, FL and most recently Raleigh, NC.

Kings Burlington was due to open their doors in April 2014, but suffered a devastating fire, which destroyed the venue within hours, one day before orientation for the 200+ new employees. “We are thankful to the Burlington Fire Department along with other local departments for their rapid response and we are most thankful that no one was hurt. We are fortunate to place all the staff that are able to relocate in our other venues in our company. We will rebuild and hope to be open within a year,” Patrick Lyons said in a statement the following day. And now, less than a year later, Kings Burlington is here. The dedication and hard work put into this rebuild will be showcased when they open their doors.

The newest Kings features a luxe “Private Screening Room," that holds up to 60 patrons in a stadium-style mini-auditorium. The Burlington location will also feature the “Kings Court,” a private Billiards and Game room that will feature several “Low Tech” table games as well as 20 high tech bowling lanes and 2 private bowling suites. Kings Burlington will also introduce an all new “X-press Lunch Menu,” catering to local businesses and patron’s on-the-go. Daily deals include a featured pizza, sandwich or burger of the day with a side and a drink for only $7.99.

With a full service restaurant and patio, billiards and shuffleboard tables, Kings also features two full-service cafes and several private bowling rooms. Throughout the facility, there will be wall-to-wall, oversized HDTVs and a state-of-the-art sound system.

Kings Burlington is committed to being an actively engaged member of the Burlington community and has pledged to work with community-based initiatives in an effort to raise money through “fun-raisers” and direct donations. Kings has already participated in several philanthropic ventures, having hosted and raised millions of dollars for local charities, backed by popular celebrities and athletes, including Celtics' Captain Rajon Rondo, Patriots' linebacker Jerod Mayo, and legendary quarterback Doug Flutie. “Kings Cares” will be pledging its first show of support in Burlington with a community-wide fundraiser, benefitting eight local Burlington Charities in February 2015 on the first week they open, donating the entire venue, food, drinks, and staff service in an effort to raise money.

ABOUT THE MENU
The full-service Kings restaurant will serve an extensive menu of award-winning American classics and comfort food, made with fresh, seasonal, and—whenever possible—local ingredients. The latest menu is an all-time best from Kings’ executive chef Andre Bautista. This new menu features healthier options and caters to dietary restrictions, with gluten-free pizza dough and rolls. Kings serves lunch, dinner, late night fare, and an impressive craft beer and specialty cocktails list.

The menu features appetizer favorites like Fried Mac & Cheese Bites, Buffalo Wontons, and Kings’ Award Winning Famous Baked Wings. There is a large selection of Salads, Hand Tossed Pizzas, Wraps, Sandwiches and Flat Top Cooked Burgers. Entrees include Pan Seared Citrus Salmon with Brown Rice & Grilled Asparagus, House Smoked Baby Back Ribs, with Fries, Coleslaw and Cornbread, and Maple Glazed Pan Seared Sea Scallops. Desserts include a selection of creative sundaes ‘sized for sharing’ and a special Fountain Shoppe menu of nostalgic favorites like Wicked Awesome Milkshakes, Ice Cream Floats, and Raspberry Lime Rickeys. The taste of nostalgia carries over onto the cocktail list, with drinks like a Strawberry Pop Rocktini, rimmed with Pop Rocks; Strawberry Peach Lemonade; and the popular Asian Pear Martini. Beer aficionados will approve of the ice cold selection of local craft, seasonal and imported beers along with the favorite domestic selections of beers featured at Kings. Patrons can enjoy a frosty pint or the KINGS-sized 32oz. Mug.

EVENTS & PARTIES
In addition to food and entertainment, Kings is well-known for its special events and parties. The venue boasts multiple private bowling and meeting spaces complemented by state-of-the-art audio and visual capabilities. Three private party spaces can accommodate up to 48, 64 and 200 people, respectively. Partygoers can bowl while enjoying an assortment of upscale culinary delights served right at the lanes, as well as "best-in-industry" service that have made Kings a favorite function destination in Greater Boston, Raleigh, Chicago and Orlando. Birthdays, bachelor and bachelorette parties, kids’ parties, and corporate team building events become memorable with the unique combination of entertainment, food and topnotch service that has given Kings “Best of Boston” accolades nearly every year for the past eleven years.
