Woman goes berserk when she spots ex smooching another at Southie bar, police say

A woman who walked into the Lincoln Tavern on West Broadway on the night of Oct. 15 and spotted her ex-boyfriend kissing another woman grew enraged and went up and punched the other woman, a BPD detective said today.

And then, after she was kicked out, she waited for the woman outside and, despite the presence of a bar bouncer who'd agreed to walk the woman home, attacked her again, stealing her keys - of which she's since taken video to taunt the victim online.

BPD Sgt. Det. Kenneth O'Brien told the Boston Licensing Board the women did not know each other before the incident. The attacker faces possible criminal charges in South Boston District Court.

When drink'in in the Lincoln

Pick a different bar when ya treat your new love to a night on the town,
Otherwise, your old sweetie will find out and hand out a wicked beat-down.
And that has a tendency to make the local constabulary take notice, grimace and frown.
To the courthouse on the hill, your sorry arse will be hell bound.

Because this occurred in Massachusetts where things that do not need to be brought to court are, while letting violent criminals roam free. America.

Manage liquor licenses like taxi medallions

They should manage liquor licenses the way the manage taxi medallions. The licensing board could tell the bar what kinds of beer to serve, what temperature to serve it at, how much to charge for it, what music to play (assuming they paid for the 'play music' upgrade to their license), what color T-shirts the bartender should wear, etc. Then we'd have a more orderly, efficient system., and we'd be creating jobs for inspectors.

The bar can have a credit card reader that becomes 'broken' at will, the bartenders may ignore the customers while chatting on speaker phone.

The above will give ride to savvy entrepreneurs developing "Drink-Sharing Services" for which no license is required. These companies with names such as Büzer and Myft, will provide speedy service, superior to that of the licensed establishments for a much lower price. Beverages will be ordered and paid for via a smartphone App. Real punters will go for the Black Sidecar Service.

From your lips to God's ears

I keep wondering what sort of new model could ever do to the liquor licence protection racket, what Uber and Lyft are doing to the taxi medallion protection racket, and I never come up with anything. I

This place serves alcohol

That's why. And when the owner got his license, this is what he agreed to. That's why. You don't have to have a law degree to know this.

The scourge of toxic monogamy

I didn't know Goldman Sachs board members, NBA All-Stars, and dudes with 11 inch (expletives) drank in the middle of South Boston.

Absent any of those characteristics, what made this guy so important that a woman would assault another woman over some kind of exclusive claim to him? What a terrific middle finger to women's rights.

For Chrissakes, lady, have some self-respect. You two couldn't agree on the terms of your toxic monogamy (or even whether that should be the framework in the first place.) Are you not smart (this shroud of emotion over intelligence notwithstanding?) Are you not pretty? Do you not have a sense of humor? Do you need to improve yourself into being the kind of person whose company is enjoyed by others? A man won't fix you. Do it yourself. Be less dependent.

This bar is the EPITOMY of "Yuppie Boston". Wouldn't be surprised if a Southie boy cheated on his Ex-Southie girlfriend with a girl from Wellesley..

yeah ok. If you walked into triple O’s in the 80’s 90’s and even looked at someone wrong I would have had to beg people to let you just go home. You really have no idea what you’re talking about it. I’m not bragging either but Southie was tough and there weren’t many rules back then.

Having lived in Old Southie in the bad old days

when mediocre pub food, shitty pizza joints, and gross American-Chinese food dominated the dining scene, I think the food and drinks at Lincoln are pretty good; I especially like the wood-fired pizzas. But like its nearby siblings Loco and Capo, it's punishingly loud even when it's a third full. I carry a sound-pressure meter for my restaurant reviews (though I'm now practiced enough that I can earball the noise level pretty accurately), and Lincoln routinely reads over 90 decibels, which means you have to scream to your dining companion two feet away to be heard, and servers routinely get orders wrong, to say nothing of what it must be doing to their hearing and general health.

I like noise, still get out to indie-rock and punk shows on the regular, but wear good custom-fitted noise-reducing ear plugs (thanks, my long-ago audiologist girlfriend). I understand why restaurateurs make this choice -- the 20-somethings equate conversational noise levels with death, it keeps olds like me from ruining the atmosphere, and loudness deters camping, which yields more table-turns and hence profits per night -- but too many new places have this deafening roar designed in. Southie is full of them: Coppersmith is one example of many terrible offenders on this score. I mostly avoid them except under professional obligation.

99.9% none of them are Southie (or Boston proper) born and bred. like someone noted above. Wellesley. CT; NY; etc.
