This is a peculiar defense: Tavern on the Square has told the Boston Licensing Board that "certain styles of music" are to blame for a change in clientele. Over the past several months, "punches were thrown, people were taken to the hospital and shirts were ripped off," reports UH. Apparently, the Tavern plans to play "calmer" music to attract a more sedate group.
Most notably, a party bus visited in February and frisky passengers grabbed food off of waitresses' trays. The melee ended with a manager losing a tooth and being punched in the face. Our question: What type of music makes people actually want to eat at Tavern on the Square? [UH]
