Domino's wants permission to keep its Brighton operation open for deliveries until 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
"There's an absolute need for late-night delivery," Domino's rep Bill Mohan told the Boston Licensing Board at a hearing this morning.
He said that rather than promoting drunken college students in their bids to go on all-night benders, delivery until 3 a.m. would actually help keep the uber-soused at home, by letting them punch in a number and get a pizza delivered, rather than trying to drive somewhere or stumble their way through the streets of the neighborhood.
But the result could be formal requests for later hours for pizza places in the Fenway and in Brighton - as late as 3 a.m. for the Brighton Domino's.

Close to 200 people packed a basement meeting room at the Roslindale Community Center tonight to oppose the proposed new location in the office building next to the library, across from Adams Park.
