Mayor Menino has created a new inspection unit to cut down on crime in and outside downtown nightclubs: "The initiative comes after a series of violent encounters at city nightclubs, including a Nov. 18 shooting that occurred outside Venu on Warrenton Street in the Theater District. Four men were injured during that shooting, which sent hundreds of people fleeing the scene." [Globe]
