Liquor licence for B. Pizza

The City of Port Alberni has endorsed a liquor licence application for Boston Pizza.

The Johnston Road restaurant wants to expand its lounge into the area now taken up by an outdoor patio so the maximum capacity will be 65 inside and 50 on the outside, according to a report by city clerk Davina Hartwell.

The restaurant plans to renovate the lounge and close it off so restaurant patrons won’t have to hear noise from the big-screen television.
