My question is …

By on

Who has the money to buy a liquor license and then pay rent on a restaurant for six *years* while generating zero income?

Bacon owns a bunch of restaurants

By on

And at what became his annual apology meetings with the licensing board, he always noted what a drain on his income this place had become.

He warehoused this license

He warehoused this license for years, probably so that he could use the loss on his taxes to offset the income from his other establishments. The city should have yanked his license long ago.

That this was allowed to happen is yet another sign of the complete dysfunctionality of the mayor’s liaison to our neighborhood .

That this was allowed to happen

Was because the tail wags the dog in that MA tells Boston how many licenses it can have.

This is why I rewarded Pressley with a vote in November. This license business is so stupid, I voted (expletive) Democrat. Soak that in.

Good Luck

Not quite the neighborhood joint I envisioned. Sixteen-dollar burgers might fly on Symphony nights, but seems a tad upscale for that location.
