Brawl That Shattered Taboo Tabou Windows Near Belmont 'L' Caught On Video

While nothing was stolen in the fracas, Taboo Tabou has already proven its mettle in the four months since it opened at 843 W. Belmont Ave. In February, co-owner Alexis Thomas and two employees chased down shoplifters after they grabbed $600 worth of merchandise.

"If we don't get control in the first few warm weekends, then we lose control for the whole summer," he said. "Everybody knows they can jump on the 'L' and show up at Belmont and Clark, meet all their friends and act inappropriately."

    Brawl That Shattered Taboo Tabou Windows Near Belmont 'L' Caught On Video
    LAKEVIEW - So much for broken windows policing. An increase in police manpower in Lakeview did little to stop a scuffle that shattered the storefront window at Taboo Tabou early Monday near the Belmont "L" station. Video surveillance at the adult toy and lingerie store captured the fight around 4 a.m.

    Wow. I live a block from here. At first I thought this was just the thread from the THIRD time, which i never bothered to comment about. i was giving them a pass because their patriarch had just died. but this is just nuts...

  • The standard practice when closing is to leave the cash register drawer open, so it's obviously empty.

The alley may be unlovely but it keeps Chicago running smoothly and gives us our nice tree lined sidewalk street fronts. Chicago has 1,900 miles of alley - nearly the distance from here to Mexico City - and our city would be dramatically different without them.
