The Boston Licensing Board decides tomorrow whether to let Beantown Pizzeria, 270 Babcock St., stay open until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Steven Parnagian, lawyer for the pizza place, told the board this morning that the store, tucked into the heavily BUish Gardner Street area, is losing business now with its current midnight closing time. He said the owner comes in first thing Saturday and Sunday morning to find his voice mail full of missed calls from people desiring pies between midnight and 2 a.m. He added other nearby eateries are open until 2 a.m. already.
Nobody from city government or from neighborhood civic associations attended the meeting to voice any concerns.
