Boston Gastronauts reports on the head-cheese subs at Sub City on Beach Street in Chinatown:
All together the sandwich presented me with a unique flavor and texture combination. The amount of veggies on this thing was intense but adding that to the bologna-y jello-y texture of the headcheese and you've got something interesting going on in your mouth.

Based on the name, one assumes CC Sign on Kneeland Street is not in the mohel business.
Stephen Walsh reports the intersections at Kneeland and Washington streets and Oak and Washington streets were shut around 11 a.m. when something white and foamy began spreading across them.
Boston Police say they reopened the intersections not long after when they discovered the foam was from an emergency crash drill being performed there, rather than the Orange Line developing a massive case of rabies.
Boston Police report police on routine patrol around 2:30 this morning spotted a man and a woman apparently arguing, shortly before the man began "pulling the female victim by the arm" at Kneeland and Tyler streets.

Points for creativity, if nothing else: Boston Police report arresting a couple of faux doxies for a pair of robberies on Charles Street and Tremont Street late last night. In the first case, the victim told police:
He was walking along Charles Street when he was approached by two women. The two women asked the victim if he would like to have a good time and he answered affirmatively. One of the two women then directed the victim to touch the other woman's breast and he heeded her instructions touching the other woman's breast. One the victim touched the other woman's breast he was then pushed against a wall and one of the women exclaimed, "You are under arrest, we are the police!" One of the suspects then reached into his pocket and removed both his wallet and cell phone and walked away.
Not long after, police say, officers on patrol in Chinatown noticed three women surrounding a man at LaGrange and Tremont, with one of them holding him by the neck:
Officers spoke to the male and he told officers that he was walking on LaGrange St. when he was approached by the same two females who had approached the victim from Charles Street and demanded to know what he was doing on the street. The victim then reported that before he could answer one of the suspects grabbed him by his shirt collar and took his wallet from his back pocket. One of the women after taking his wallet told him that they were cops and that he was going to jail. The woman holding him then told the other one to "call it in" and she started to motion as if she was waving someone to come to her aid.
Angela C. Kasper, 30 of Cary, NC and Kimberly Mosby, 43 of Boston, were arrested and charged with unarmed robbery and impersonating a police officer.

This video, posted here, shows some guys getting upset with somebody in a car on Tyler Street, so they jump on it and beat it, then chase it. Then the driver stops, gets out and goes berserk with a baseball bat. Almost as bad is the way the guy shooting the video is obviously having a grand ol' time. The video was posted yesterday; doesn't specify when this happened:
Boston Police report that officers already busy trying to tone down after-hours partiers outside 150 Kneeland St. this morning watched as two guys got into a fight in the middle of the road that ended with one carted off to Tufts Medical Center with multiple stab wounds.

You learn something every day. Today we learn that some of the plantings along the Greenway are edible. Although one suspects the Greenway Conservancy would not take kindly to people making impromptu salads out of them.
The Globe reports the Greenway Conservancy spent $100,000 for a network of 15 access points that gets turned on tomorrow.

And the Glass Slipper on LaGrange Street agrees, telling the Boston Licensing Board this morning that it had no excuse for the way a stripper, clad only in a G string, was giving a customer a lap dance on May 9.
Boston Police Det. Kevin McGill uncovered the violation while conducting a routine inspection of the strip joint. He said he and Sgt. John Devaney went up to the third-floor lounge to find a number of patrons as well as female employees in "various stages of dress," which is fine. But then their attention was drawn to the near naked woman sitting in a patron's lap "making physical contact with the patron," which is a no-no under city regulations. McGill said a club manager immediately put an end to the up-close performance.
"There's no touching, there's no touching, just no touching," board Chairman Daniel Pokaski chided club managers this morning. Pokaski, who acknowledged the need for "an upscale, high-end gentleman's club in a major city," said he did not want to go back to the bad old days of the Combat Zone. "We don't need that," he said. "Train your staff."
Club managers agreed.
The Boston Licensing Board today heard such differing accounts of what happened one January night at the Rumor nightclub that board Chairman Daniel Pokaski wondered at one point if both parties were talking about the same incident.
Incidents at two other Boston establishments will also force the board to consider what the hell actually happened.
