The Herald gets ahold of some glorious memos from a WCVB news exec ordering reporters doing outdoor liveshots to always be walking while they're talking - even if that means walking from "nowhere to nowhere."
A contractor managed to take out a water main in the area of Milton Avenue and Spring Hill Road this afternoon, cutting off water to people along Milton Avenue.
Darryl Houston reports the outage could extend as far as Warren Avenue. He reports BWSC workers managed to get water flowing again tonight, but that they didn't seem absolutely sure repairs would hold until the morning.
The Board of Appeal today approved plans to replace an old pet-care place at the lonely corner of Tremont and Herald streets with a new seafood place that would offer outdoor seating in warmer months.
Stephen Chan's proposed Bootleg Specials would feature "Asian-influenced seafood," his attorney told the board. The restaurant would have 80 seats indoors and 28 outdoors, along with a 16-seat bar and room for another 16 people to mill about near the bar.
Chan is hoping to stay open until midnight most nights and 1 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, and to offer brunch on weekends.
Chan still needs permission from the Boston Licensing Board to serve food and must either buy a liquor license on the open market or hope the board just happens to have a spare one when he files an application there.
His proposal was supported by the mayor's office - which said residents have been asking for something to go into the "very quiet corner" for a long time - and City Councilor Bill Linehan.
