Hooters in Dedham Gets Liquor License After Town Is Forced into a Revote
It looks like a chain of dining spots that some have labeled "breastaurants" has won the battle to open a new location in a Boston suburb.
According to an article in the Dedham Patch, town selectmen were basically forced into a revote on the transfer of a liquor license to Hooters, as the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission went against the board's earlier vote to deny the restaurant a license based in part on a neighborhood petition along with issues mentioned earlier here that included what the selectmen considered inequitable hiring practices. Based on the ABCC's overturning of the town's earlier vote, selectmen voted this time to support the transfer, noting that even though they could have appealed the ABCC's decision, they didn't think that they would win.
Hooters is planning to open in the Providence Highway space on where Jasper White's Summer Shack had once been.
