Ever bring up an old business that isn’t open anymore, and someone younger looks at you like you have three heads?

It really is amazing how when you get a little older, you can think of a place you used to go all the time, and get a little nostalgic for it.

This was never more true than last weekend, when the Blue Sky Lounge in Bangor, decided to bring back Barnaby’s for one glorious night of dancing and memories.

About a year ago, we decided to take a stroll down memory lane, and ask listeners on our Facebook page to name a former Bangor area business that ages you.

Over 300 people came up with some great stores, restaurants, and nightspots that are no longer with us. I started the ball rolling with The Bounty Tavern, and one of my all-time faves, Captain Nick's, and it just took off from there.

Take a look at these fantastic answers:

This is just a portion of the answers, and since it is a #Throwback Thursday, we would love it if you would share one of your own, and maybe mention a specific memory attached to the business!
