Possible legal byob in Boston!


#1

Well, wouldn’t this be a welcome development? The City Council is holding a hearing today to consider allowing byob in restaurants with 30 seats or fewer. Here’s hoping!


#2

Any idea if they came to a conclusion? I tried to google but haven’t seen any reports yet.


#3

Looks like it’s still being discussed.


#4

Thanks. What was the reason for the ban in the first place?


#5

Looks like the vote will take place this afternoon. Fingers crossed! It seems like this could help small restaurants to survive if they don’t have to pay the massive licensing fees that they currently have to pay.

It passed! http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2015/12/16/city-council-expected-approve-byob/KyELjJQeo3v7ciU0Teo6qI/story.html
