From: Brian Sparks

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:

A record and content of all complaints or reports made to your office regarding the Bostonian Hospitality Group, also doing business as "Nix's" including Nix's Mate in Boston, or a managing partner of Bostonian Hospitality Group named Abner Kurtin. I'm seeking records of all complaints and reports made regarding the above, including but not limited to reports of possibly illegal or wrongful liquor transfer between Bostonian Hospitality Group restaurants.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Brian Sparks

** High Priority **

Dear Mr. Sparks:

Please be advised that you should submit any record requests to our
ABCC Public Record-Requests email above.

For your convenience, I have attached a copy of the record request form
which indicates the information needed for your record request. If you
do not have a license number, just supply as much information as you
can.

We do not find any listing for "Bostonian Hospitality Group."

Under the d/b/a Nix's or Nix's Brew Pub or Nix's Mateat 10 Center
Street, one license is in Nantucket; one in Newburyport, and one in
Plymouth.

If you can supply any additional information, that would be very
helpful.

Thank you.
Patricia
