The Boston Licensing Board today gave the Russian Benevolent Society, 14 Linden St., permission to serve dinner and liquor Thursday through Sunday night.
At a hearing yesterday, society lawyer Richard Vetstein said the move will not only help the club financially but give Russian immigrants in Allston and Brighton a chance to mingle and enjoy a taste of home.
Under the society's old club license, it could only open to serve meals and liquors for functions.
