LaserCraze Is Coming To Woburn
The Woburn License Commission granted an amusement license for the children's indoor play space last week.
The children's indoor play space—LaserCraze—is coming to Woburn.
Greg Hughes of Hughes Entertainment was granted an amusement license for his indoor commercial playground and laser tag arena last Thursday by the Woburn License Commission.
LaserCraze is currently being built on 15 Presidential Way and expects to open sometime in late February or early March. Hughes sought the amusement license because he wants to open a “pizza cafe” inside LaserCraze. This is the fourth facility of this nature that Hughes runs.
Paul Meaney of the Woburn Business Association said his organization supports the new establishment.
“It's going to be a good fit over there on Presidential Way,” he said.
Other license approvals
The License Commission handed out several new licenses to different restaurants and organizations throughout town last week.
The Liberty Bell Restaurant on 466 Main Street failed to show for their Common Victualer's license renewal (the license required to sell food to the public in Massachusetts.) If Liberty Bell doesn't show at the next License Commission meeting they will lose their license.
The Boys and Girls Club of Charles Gardener Lane was granted two one-day liquor licenses. The first is for their ninth annual Saint Patrick's Day party which expects 300 guests. The Boys and Girls Club was also granted a one-day liquor license for their second annual road race and BBQ. On both accounts, the Commission waived the $50 license fee because both events are charitable.
Annunciation of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church of 70 Montvale Ave. was granted a one-day liquor license for their Valentine's Day dance. Again, the fee was waived.
St. Charles School's petition for a one-day liquor license for their Casino Night was postponed. According to state law, St. Charles must first get the permission of the Woburn Police chief to hold any events that mix alcohol and gambling.
An entertainment license was granted to the Lodge of Elks on 295 Washington St. in order for the lodge to have charitable events and bands come and play in their basement. Again, the $50 license fee was waived for charitable reasons.
“I want this used as a venue for charity, not as a nightclub,” said License Commission Chairman William Bishop.
Brian Murphy, 10 years with the Uno's Corporation, was granted permission to be the new 300 Mishawum Road Uno's Manager, having just recently moved to town in December.
Sichuan Garden on 2 Alfred St. and Xiaoyi Duan received a new manager's license as well. Duan is the current owner.
