Ula Cafe won city approval to serve beer and wine while Tres Gatos upgraded to a full liquor license, according to Future Boston. Ula, a busy bakery in The Brewery, said the license will help support their open mic nights. Co-owner Korinn Koslofsky said she was thrilled. "We are very excited to have this opportunity to finally be able to provide beer and wine to our very loyal guests who have been asking for it for years," she wrote in an email to Jamaica Plain News, "and we can't express how grateful we are for all of their support during this process. We would not have been granted this license if it hadn't been for all of the signatures and letters of support we were able to collect over the past few months."

While authorities are urging people to hunker down in their apartments and homes, we keep getting requests for what's actually open during the blizzard. Here's what we know so far.

One of the neighborhood's best-established cafes is looking for community support to add beer and wine to their offerings. Ula Cafe has two public meetings this week to clear the red tape needed for the change. The 284 Amory St. spot appears before a JP Neighborhood Council committee on Tuesday and is scheduled to go before the Licensing Board on Wednesday. The cafe recently Tweeted this message in hopes of spurring community support:
It's true, we are applying for a Beer&Wine License!

Patio season is in full swing. You might think you know every outdoor restaurant space in the neighborhood, but click through — you may find some you didn't know about. My bet for best patio some of you might've missed is the nicely designed space behind Simpli Bar & Bites in Forest Hills. Of course it's hard to make a gallery like this comprehensive. Please add any omissions in the comment section or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll add a photo.
