Cask 'n Flagon
A couple of reports from this past holiday weekend:
Vanyaland reports the bassist for a band playing O'Brien's in Allston last night tried to set his instrument on fire - with the help of some lighter fluid. No, it wasn't the Flaming Lips.
Sgt. Luke Taxter at D-4 reports a large fight inside the Cask 'n Flagon early Sunday ended with "1 female with cut to face and officers closing the bar early."
The Cask 'n Flagon will have to shut for two days due to a closing-time brawl that left one man pouring blood from the back of his head and a bouncer lucky his finger wasn't bitten clear off.
The Boston Licensing Board ordered the penalty last week for a May 22 incident sparked by a hothead being pushed out of the bar after being ejected earlier in the evening and a woman who had no connection to him who decided to give bouncers a piece of her mind.
Police, a patron and bar employees gave differing explanations today for how a Cask 'n Flagon customer wound up unconscious on the sidewalk, blood pouring out of the back of his head, at closing time on May 22.
At a Boston Licensing Board hearing, however, all agreed the action started with a man being ejected from the bar for the second time that night and a woman who had nothing to do with him who loudly objected to his treatment.
