Boston Board Suspends Several Licenses

The Boston Licensing Board in late June voted to suspend Durgin-Park’s liquor license for two days because of an incident in which a now ex-oyster shucker kept groping a waitress even after she told him to stop and punched him.

At a recent Board hearing, waitresses testified that the man routinely groped waitresses but that nobody thought to tell management.

The board also gave Mama Blanca on Saratoga Street in East Boston a two-day suspension for a brawl that left one man missing half an ear.

The Bar Room on Broad Street lost its liquor license for three days because of an incident in which the bar confiscated a gun from a drunk man trying to enter the establishment and then didn’t tell police about it for almost a day.

The establishments can decide when to shut down. They can also appeal the punishments to the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission.
