Boston Restaurants Standing in Solidarity With ‘A Day Without a Woman’ StrikeOn Wednesday, March 8, which is International Women’s Day, women around the world plan to “act together for equity, justice, and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity.” The organizers (who were also behind the Women’s March on Washington) have dubbed the demonstration “A Day Without a Woman,” and anyone who is interested and able to participate is encouraged to take one or more of the following actions on March 8: Take the day off from both paid and unpaid labor; avoid shopping for the day (with exceptions for businesses that are small and women- and minority-owned); wear red.
A Chicago-based coffee roaster is inching closer to opening its first Boston-area outpost in Watertown and will introduce itself to the neighborhood this week by handing out free coffee and espresso beverages from its shiny red truck.
The Intelligentsia Coffee truck will be parked near the future Coffeebar and training lab at 810 Mt. Auburn St. on Thursday and Friday, and members of the Watertown team will brew up free coffee for those who stop by from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Intelligentsia in Watertown is set to open in May, and the coffee bar will feature a pour over bar that showcases the coffee-making process. Intelligentsia will partner with a local bakery for food items.

For most restaurants in Boston, getting a license to sell beer, wine and booze has always come down to one thing: cash — and a lot of it. But for the restaurants without enough scratch, there is hope.
Mayor Marty Walsh and City Councilwoman Ayanna Pressley created a plan Monday that would add 152 non-transferable liquor licenses over the next three years. The move would create neighborhood-specific licenses while cutting into a market where transferable license, limited by statue, can cost up $500,000.
The measure still requires approval from the state legislature.
The plan is part of an effort to attract new businesses and restaurants, encourage expansion of current establishments, and support Boston's growing economy. It would also give the Lawn on D, an outdoor event space in the Seaport, and the Boston Center for the Arts in the South End, a shot at selling booze.
""This balanced approach to licensing ensures neighborhoods historically disadvantaged by the liquor license process will receive their fair share of licenses,"" Walsh said. He added that the measure would also provide ""an option for larger establishments to receive licenses without hurting our small businesses.

BOSTON, MA – The City of Boston’s Licensing Board unanimously approved rules and regulations to allow for BYOB (bring your own bottle) in Boston Wednesday, but many restrictions apply. For now, the rules only apply to restaurants outside downtown neighborhoods, and only those on the smaller side – with capacity for 30 or fewer people – who don't already have an alcoholic beverage license through the city. Restaurants that meet those specifications can apply for a permit that allows patrons to bring in alcoholic beverages to drink.
