Locke-Ober Mementos Auctioned; Another b.good

DOWNTOWN CROSSING - Earlier today items from the recently closed, 137-year-old Locke-Ober went up for auction, and the Herald reports that almost 200 bidders showed up (in person and online) for stuff like "kitchen equipment, boxes of salt and pepper shakers and stacks of plates to Gibson Girl prints, a pool table and memorabilia such as old menus and gift certificates." The new owners of the space collected the take, which will somewhat help to offset the $3.3 million they ponied up to secure the spot for a new restaurant. [BH]
