Who goes to Mary Ann's for food? Nobody, that's who
The Cleveland Circle bar goes before the Boston Licensing Board next week for permission to ditch its food-serving license and just serve hard drinks for men who want to get drunk fast - or BC students who just want to relax, at any rate.
Mary Ann's was one of a number of Boston watering holes dinged by a new city enforcement effort over the past four months against bars with food serving licenses that didn't actually serve food. Like the others, Maryanne's was given an warning.
Bars can go all liquid, but only after explaining to the board why they should be allowed to ditch the food and be granted a coveted "general on premises all alcohol beverages" license that has no food requirement.
Also seeking permission to end the food charade: The Beacon Hill Pub, 149A Charles St.
The board's weekly petitions hearing will begin at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 27, in its eighth-floor hearing room in City Hall.
