Three restaurants operating at Encore Boston Harbor will be able to sell takeout beer and wine in sealed containers, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission agreed Wednesday.
Wynn Resorts Ltd. requested permission to sell wine and malted beverages as part of a food transaction at its Mystique, Red 8 and Rare Steakhouse restaurants through legislation approved by Massachusetts lawmakers earlier this year.
The Gaming Commission approved the request unanimously.
The restaurants are allowed to sell takeout meals, and Wynn officials said casino patrons are doing that more frequently since regulators earlier this month began requiring that casinos close their doors at 9:30 nightly in a bid to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Southern Nevada restaurants are allowed to sell alcoholic beverages on a takeout basis after approvals by muncipal governments.
