Via Scott Kirsner, we learn the BPD licensing division shut down the bar at the Boston Holiday Tech Co-Party at the Revere Hotel early this morning because it was an open bar and that's against the law for events that charge admission.
The party, co-sponsored by a who's who list of local venture and tech law firms - and Red Bull and Absolut - is an annual event aimed at giving small startups a way to get the feel of a large company office party. Admission this year was $50.
