Is stuck somewhere near Andrew, full of increasingly cranky people who don't like being stuck underground, squashed together.
Around 3 p.m. on Friday, somebody waiting for a train at Broadway noticed a woman "performing a sexual act" on a man. Rather than yelling at them to get a room, the shocked rider notified Transit Police, who arrived in time to consummate an arrest of the both of them for lewd, wanton and lascivious conduct, the T reports.
An impatient citizen couldn't even wait for the end of the St. Patrick's Day parade to complain about horse droppings. The city has, however, marked the complaint "resolved."
Today, it's mainly a day for free parking downtown and for Boston municipal workers and school kids to get a day off. But back in the day, it honored the first major victory of the Revolution - the day the British fled the capital of the colony where the fighting had begun.
As of 6:45 p.m. yesterday, Boston Police say, officers had issued 336 citations for drinking in public along the St. Patrick's Day parade route - and made 26 arrests, mainly for disorderly conduct.
Mayor advises residents: Don't be a knucklehead - and if you have a house along the parade route, watch those guests near the deck railings.
Roving UHub photographer Noah Sachs stopped in at Whiskey Priest today and captured this Irish Viking having a Guinness.
The Seaport continues to spin like a vortex, sucking out liquor licenses from the rest of the city: On March 27, the Boston Licensing Board holds a hearing on a proposal by chef Todd Winer (late of Met Back Bay) to buy the liquor license from Aces High in Andrew Square for his impending Pastoral at 345 Congress St.
Zagat reports Pastoral will be focused around a wood-burning oven and will feature "Neapolitan pizza and dishes made with new, locally sourced ingredients."
For some reason, Zagat has no listing for Aces High, but one reviewer at another site says, "This is where the teachers who ain't scared of nobody come to drink after hours."
The Boston Business Journal reports the Unitarian Universalist Association is selling its headquarters on Beacon Hill to move into three floors of a six-story office building on Farnsworth Street in South Boston - part of what Bloomberg this week called a building boom that has seen office rents in the district soar.
The association itself says:
The Atlantic Cities reports on the new "streets seats" going in.
A nice local Dorchester woman reports on her Sunday afternoon drive through Southie:

State Police, of course, closed Morrissey Boulevard early this morning, which is what you can expect from a road built roughly two inches above sea level next to a bay. And that, naturally, meant shutting the exit to Morrissey off I-93 northbound.
At 7:59 a.m., Steve Bickerton tweeted:
Neponset Circle backed up Gallivan Blvd. to Eire Pub.
Neponset Ave is a parking lot. 15 mins from Coffey Street to Lil Peach.
Meanwhile, upbay at Castle Island, Steve Brady reported:
The ocean is slowly devouring the Sugar Bowl, and the water is up to the sidewalk at parts of the causeway. Couldn't even see a hint of the harbor islands from the Sugar Bowl, either. Just the swollen ocean. Very eerie.
A piqued citizen complains about whoever's slapping ads on cheap bikes and locking them to bike racks, such as this one by the Broadway T stop:
Bike advertisement bike has been locked here for 3 weeks. Remove and cite. They have done this before, and tie up bike racks for people who need them. Outrageous and ridiculous!
A man walking on Congress Street near Sleeper Street was jumped, robbed at knifepoint and punched in the face around 8:15 p.m. By 8:30, officers looking for the suspects on the other side of Fort Point Channel found two men matching their descriptions at Atlantic Avenue and Summer Street and arrested them.
Police will now look at whether the two are involved in a spate of similar attacks across the city, in particular in East Boston.
The Globe reports the Courtyard by Marriott in South Boston had to be evacuated last night when a New Jersey man dressed like a woman sprayed another man with mace after the guy went up to her room and grew suspicious the door was locked and that there was another person in the room with them.

Updated Thursday morning.
The Dorchester Reporter reports prominent Boston lawyer William McDermott was struck and killed by an SUV as he tried to walk across Day Boulevard at L Street in South Boston Wednesday evening.
The Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports McDermott was hit by a Ranger Rover driven by a 33-year-old South Boston man:
State Police responded to the scene at about 7:30 after the operator called 911; he remained at the scene and did not show signs of intoxication. The investigation will entail a reconstruction of the crash by the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and a search for surveillance cameras and other evidence by detectives. No charges have been brought as of this morning but interviews are ongoing and the probe remains very active at this hour.
Paul Villanova took in the re-opening of Sullivan's at Castle Island today.
Scott Van Voorhis reports the city's push for "micro" apartment as lure for youngpreneurs to move into the Innovation District is working - except for the part about them being more affordable, such as the $1,700 a month or so to live in a 300-square-foot apartment on Melcher Street:
That's a lot to pay given you can get a townhouse in Quincy for that price and still be within a 10 or 15 minute Red Line commute from downtown Boston.
Sullivan's at Castle Island opens this Saturday. Maybe they'll serve French toast.
