A sports bar in northwest Rockford has decided to toss in the towel after five years in business. The sports fans and beer drinkers that once called this place "theirs" will have to find a new place to make memories.

Boomer's via Facebook

Boomer's Sports Bar & Grill has shut its door and owners said their goodbyes on Facebook. The quick and vague post said this,

It's Been Wonderful to have Made so many Great Memories and meet so (sic) Many Wonderful People who have become Family along the Way.. Unfortunately lost some people too soon. Thank You Everyone who was part of the Boomers Family...

There is yet to be an explanation as to why Boomer's has closed but patrons shared their sadness of its closure and thanked owners for the atmosphere provided for a number of years. Boomer's occupied the space once filled by JD's Sports Bar, the former home of a really bad build-a-bikini contest hosted by yours truly.
