There’s a new group of cops in town, and they want to check your IDs. According an article in today’s ProJo, the Providence Police’s recently-created Underage Drinking & Nightclub Safety Task Force was on Thayer on a recent Thursday evening, checking bars for underage drinking and other code violations.

Kartabar received a citation for a blocked fire exit, but the officers found Thayer’s bars otherwise free of illegal activity. Spat’s, for example, “was quiet, and there was no evidence of underage drinking, liquor-control problems or fire-code violations.”

Nice work, Thayer-goers. Whether you’re abiding by the law or just have good fakes, we’re sure the U is breathing a sigh of relief.
