Lincoln May Get Three Liquor Licenses
A mostly rural northwest suburb of Boston that is basically dry might be a little less dry soon, depending on what voters have to say about the matter.
According to the Lincoln Journal and Wicked Local, the town of Lincoln is considering having three liquor licenses issued, which, if approved by voters, would go to a restaurant (AKA Bistro), a market (Donelan's), and a residential community (The Groves). AKA Bistro is currently able to serve beer and wine, but this license would allow them to sell liquor, while the license for Donelan's would allow the market to carry beer and wine. As for The Groves, the license would let the residential complex serve alcohol at various events that are held there.
The article mentions that if voters ok the issuance of liquor licenses on March 26 (and the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission subsequently approves it), it would be the first time in approximately 250 years that folks could buy a bottle of beer or wine in a store in Lincoln.
