Downtown restaurant to celebrate sectarian violence

The Boston Licensing Board this week hears a request from restaurateur Brian O'Donnell to rename Jason Santos's old Blue, Inc. at 131 Broad St. to Broad Street Riot.

The name harkens back to the Broad Street Riot of 1837, when drunken Protestant firefighters got into it with Irish Catholic men about to form a funeral procession, sparking a riot that left nearby businesses and homes in ruins.

Possible frost tonight could be followed by a 'prolonged nor'easter'

The National Weather Service has issued a frost advisory for the immediate coastline (and all of Boston) and a freeze warning for the rest of the area overnight.

Then, on Tuesday, we could get hit with what NECN's Matt Noyes is calling a prolonged nor'easter that could last until Friday. No snow out of it, at least.
