Is the outcome of this hearing already in the cards?
The Boston Licensing Board holds a hearing next Wednesday on a fortune teller's proposed studio in Kenmore Square.
Angela Mitchell will be asking for a license to read palms and tarot cards at 485 Commonwealth Ave.
Unlike with liquor and food licenses, in which prospective operators are required to explain their experience in their fields, the board does not ask would-be seers about their training, let alone the accuracy of their predictions. Instead, they ask them if they plan to use neon signs to advertise their services and post their prices prominently. In the past, the board would reject license holders who said yes to the first and no to the second.
Board hearings start at 10 a.m. in City Hall Room 801.
Thanks to Bill Bradshaw for noticing this.
