The Brookline Police recently issued temporary liquor license suspensions to two Brookline Village businesses after discovering violations, reports the Brookline TAB. The Brookline Spa was hit with a three day suspension after a clerk sold wine to a minor in a police sting and Matt Murphy’s got a five day suspension after two violations. The Brookline Police: not messing around! This is a sharp contrast to the Boston Licensing Board, which, as an expose last month revealed, has overlooked everything from a doorman putting a customer in a chokehold at The Bell in Hand to a mess of college students passed out outside of McFadden’s. Memo to unscrupulous bar owners: it’s much better to open your law-flouting establishment in Boston proper.
