El Kabong: Man charged with bashing Cambridge restaurant owner in the head with a guitar

Wicked Local Cambridge reports a man who claims he lives at the Friend Street Hostel in Boston was arrested on charges that he responded to news that a Cambridge restaurant would not serve him because it was closed by repeatedly smacking the restaurant owner in the head with a guitar he happened to have with him.

    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?

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

    Great reference

    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.
