A correspondent reports she saw a guy steal the tip jar at the Starbucks at 30 Rowes Wharft around 4:10 p.m. today - despite the best efforts of a barista and a single customer to stop him.

"I feel bad for the working staff, they're not rich," she said, adding she's also upset that while women in the shop called 911, "lots of men in there were buying coffee and they didn't even block the door nor tried to help."

Turkey at Rowes Wharf

Jpilz spotted the downtown turkey setting up housekeeping on a ledge at Rowes Wharf this evening. If only it were a duck, it could get a room and put it on its bill.

Turkey continues to stick neck out in downtown Boston.
As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!
