Boston College's University Health Services reports:

More than 120 BC students have reported to BC Health Services with symptoms consistent with the Norovirus. Nearly all cases are related to students who ate at the Chipotle restaurant in Cleveland Circle during the past weekend.

A crackdown on underage drinkers in Cleveland Circle has sent the fake-ID crowd outward in Brighton, forcing bars that want no part of them to step up their ID checking.

The news came too late for Porter Belly's, on Washington Street in Brighton Center, which found itself before the Boston Licensing Board this morning to explain why police snared two underage drinkers there one night in September - one of whom needed a ride down to District D-14 after he allegedly tried to evade a police detective asking to see his real ID, not the fake license in his wallet.
