East Boston gets late-night cafe
The Boston Licensing Board last week gave Cafe Gigu, 102 Meridian St., permission to stay open until 1 a.m.
The cafe had previously had to shut at 9:30 p.m. Owner Gina Guerrero told the board she'd been getting increasing number of requests from customers for a place where they could unwind later or even hold business meetings.
The mayor's office supported the general idea, but asked that closing time be midnight.
