The Mob and Max Brenner



The Mob and Max Brenner, originally uploaded by davest.

When I was in Israel in 2008, my friends Darren and Charla raved about a place in Tel Aviv called Max Brenner, famous for their chocolate treats. We had a great time.

Fast forward to 2011, Max Brenner has opened on Boston’s main street, Boylston, at the Marathon finish line. Cool!

But this morning there was a giant inflatable rat in front of Max Brenner and guys handing out flyers documenting health violations of the other three MB’s in the US.

But at the bottom of the flyer in small print was a complaint about MB using an electrical contractor with low wages. The flyer’s sponsor organization?

IBEW, a union.

My theory? This is Boston and organized crime was not able to extort protection money from MB.

Agree with me? Or no?
