Unique name but...

I would never suggest that this is the same 36 year-old Shenandoah Hawkins who happens to have a previous alcohol-related offense:

Because today's 36 year-old Shenandoah Hawkins seems like a reasonable and sober guy, ya know, viewing a restaurant being closed as a "dick" move that merits an attack. Allegedly.

That's Cambridge for you.

First non-Knockout, Knockouts outside The Cellar, musical instrument assaults in Central Square, and recently a murder on Putnam Street.

Cambridge, what a fetid cesspool of crime. Is there anyplace safe in that town? How do people live there?

They tease police dogs in cruisers there, too.

who did the teasing was from Cambridge. Where do you think he practiced his award-winning technique?

Seriously Adam - how do you remember these things?

The only reason it registered is the cat woke me up at 4:30 am begging for his morning repast and while still in a sleep induced haze scrolling through some morning news sites including UH I saw the words El Kabong and guitar and an ancient memory flashed in my head. Never would have gotten the connection fully conscious.

Thumbs up on the post for a fun but long lost reminder of my yoot!

Which restaurant at Mass Ave

Which restaurant at Mass Ave and Brookline St?

Hi-Fi Pizza is currently closed for a hood repair, according to the handwritten sign on the door.

The Middle East has been pretty busy over the last few days, with a festival that involved closing Brookline Street to put up a movie screen and snowboarding ramp.
