Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I was never a clubber. But I do end up at a club 1-2 times a year because a friend (or my gfs friend) celebrates their bday at one.

Closing at 2am is lame sausage.

New Jersey is a 2am state...

Re: Martin's Park | Children's Wharf | Fort Point

Odd, I thought the under area had bathrooms, but nope, just 5 employee parking spaces. I think there is a toilet but just for them.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

That puts the state even deeper in the red.

Once you throw in the bureaucracy behind tickets + the appeal process, it costs more than then $100 you get from them.

Same reason why police...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

10 evaders per hour per station = $22.50 in lost revenue

Im pretty sure the cost of having two cops (since they never stand along) posted at the station to catch these ten folks is well in excess...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Not perceived danger, perceived fare avoidance.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars
