Atomic Books gets liquor license

June 6, 2013

atomicbeer2-225x300On April 1st, when beloved Hampden bookstore Atomic Books announced plans to expand into the adjacent space vacated by Doubledutch Boutique to add a bar, we thought the whole thing might be an – admittedly not particularly funny – April Fools Day prank.

It turns out they meant it! And today Atomic announced on its Tumblr that its liquor license had been approved, adding a screen grab of the tweet from liquor board chair Steve Fogleman (@BaltoBeerBaron) confirming “small bookstore bar with local craft beers planned.”

Okay, we believe you! Congratulations! Sounds like a fantastic addition to the neighborhood…
