Great news arrived late Friday afternoon as I was heading to the store to check on building progress. The City of Boston Licensing Board approved Streetcar’s license application, pending approval from the ABCC and Zoning. With just about every other step along the way, I’ve felt the accompanying sense of accomplishment somewhat muted by anxious anticipation of the next step. With this weekend’s approval, I feel like I can breathe a little.
I’ve tried to thank everyone along the way who has helped get the wheels moving, and I still feel incredibly grateful and indebted to so many people. I won’t list everyone by name, but thanks again to everyone who signed petitions, wrote letters, attended meetings, offered advice, and provided spoken and unspoken support in many ways. Starting this business has required a critical mass beyond what I had imagined, and I feel fortunate to have a strong network of friends and supporters.
Look for some exciting new photos of the interior to be posted sometime in the next week!
