THE NEWS

  • New Haven registered its third homicide of the year early Saturday, interrupting a 65-day streak without homicides. At approximately 2:01 a.m. on Saturday, the New Haven Police Department dispatched officers to the area in front of 39 Thompson St., in the Newhallville neighborhood, after receiving reports of gunfire, said NHPD spokesman David Hartman. The NHPD officers located Eric Forbes, 33, suffering from a gunshot wound to the back. Forbes, a Hamden resident, was transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.
  • Last Friday, Yale’s first student-run pop-up restaurant opened its doors to serve noodles to 60 customers in the Davenport basement. Lucas Sin ’15 recruited three sous-chefs and a business manager in January to create the Underground Noodle Collective. The pop-up restaurant opened for business in the Davenport buttery on Friday from 6-9 p.m., selling bowls of noodles for $8 to students who had made online reservations in advance. Sin and his sous-chefs — Mariona Badenas ’16, Rafi Bildner ’16 and Sarah Strong ’16 — chose to create the collective in order to address a lack of affordable alternatives to the dining hall for weekend meals.
  • Jason Alexander, a Tony Award-winning director, producer and actor best known for his role in the television series “Seinfeld,” spoke about his early career and his path to acting success at a Jonathan Edwards College Master’s Tea Sunday evening. Alexander, who played the role of George Costanza in the popular television series, kept the audience of 70 students and theater enthusiasts riveted throughout the event with funny anecdotes. Alexander described how, as a shy and introverted 6-year-old, he explained to the audience how he had grown as an actor over the span of his career.
