The City has modified the Expanded Outdoor Dining Program that will make it easier for bars, taverns and breweries affected by the latest rollback of the reopening guidelines to operate outdoors. Establishments that serve alcohol without a Retail Food License may apply to use this program to operate on the sidewalk and all restaurants and bars may use the permit in outdoor areas that would typically require an Outdoor Patio License. Details for establishments are available through BACP and will be shared with all licensees. If you are patronizing an establishment of any kind, please wear a mask at all possible times.
