You thought there was enough drama in the streets of Allston already? The developers of 9-23 Griggs Street are offering a theater as one of the amenities. Residents will also benefit from the usual fitness center and roof deck. Mount Vernon Company, the developer, has also been acquiring some other property in the area, most recently 83 rental apartments at 74-86 Brainerd Road. And this Thursday they will be at the Brighton Allston Improvement Association to talk about a proposal for 79 units at 66 Brainerd Road. They have a lot going on in a small sliver along the Brookline border, it will be interesting to see what else they want to do.
Tuesday the Licensing Board will hear what some local watering holes have to say in response to the following:
Tavern in the Square in Allston was hit with a charge of serving a 64-ounce pitcher of beer to only one person. This is violates the law that limits one person from being given more that two drinks at a time, and is also basically unenforceable by bar staff.
Around the corner on Harvard Avenue, Wonder Bar got nabbed for an employee on patron assault and serving a minor.
And Myong Dong, a Korean restaurant and bar also on Harvard Avenue, will have to explain why they served so much booze to a patron he passed out on the table. The place was also cited for overcrowding. Well, obviously, if the place was that packed, the table was the only place to sleep it off.
