In the past year or so, restaurants across the state have been allowed to sell mixed drinks to customers for off-site consumption, and now they will be able to do so for nearly a year.
According to one article Governor Charlie Baker from NBC Boston signed a bill today that will extend the sale of takeaway cocktails at restaurants and bars in Massachusetts until May 1, 2022. The bill also includes the sale of beer and wine for off-site consumption. This It happened after the Covid-19 emergency started in March last year and ended in the early hours of yesterday morning, which led to speculation about the exact status of the alcohol takeaway program.
In addition to the cocktail party that will last until the beginning of May next year, the bill will also extend the special permit to expand outdoor dining until April 1, 2022.
