“Dear PoPville,

Have you heard anything about this new place that’s coming to the old White Tiger restaurant on Massachusetts in NE? I am trying to be optimistic because I think it’s a good space, but the sign looks pretty cheesy – “Romeo & Juliet – Garden Cafe.”

Back in July of 2013 we first learned that the former White Tiger restaurant would become a new restaurant called Romeo & Juliet. Some neighbors opposed their proposed outdoor cafe but in Jan. 2014 ABRA ruled in Romeo & Juliet’s favor – you can read that full report here:

Notice from 2010

“Dear PoPville,

My brother was stopped by authorities at Eastern Market metro station yesterday for a random security check before getting onto the platform. His bag was searched, sniffing dogs roamed, and this hands wiped for gun powder residue, much like what we experience at security lines in airports.

Have you or your readers seen or heard of this before? Will this become the norm?”

Ed. Note: Metro Transit Police have been doing random searches since at least 2008. We also spoke about random inspections in 2010.
