Simco's has to shut a day for staying open too late one night

Simco's, 1509 Blue Hill Ave., will have to serve a one-day suspension after a police lieutenant found them open 45 minutes past their licensed 1 a.m. closing time one night in August.

The Boston Licensing Board ordered the punishment after Lt. Det. Eric Eversley testified at a Tuesday hearing that when he drove past Simco's around 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 9, he found the place humming: Not only were there eight to ten patrons waiting in line, there were cars double parked out front and there was even a guy selling CDs on the sidewalk.

Simco's is only licensed to stay open until 1 a.m.

Manager Denise Fotopoulos apologized to the board."It got really busy" that night, she said. "The oven was just so full of pizzas and other things, and we just got stuck."
