The License Commission could close the bar permanently if problems continue, officials say.
The Waltham License Commission has suspended alcohol and food service at Guanachapi’s Bar & Grill on River Street after repeated liquor violations, according to Commissioner Robert Hardiman. The commission, at its Jan. 22 meeting, ordered the bar closed for two weeks for “repeat over-pouring,” Hardiman told Waltham Patch. The suspension lasts until Feb. 13, Hardiman said.

Both drivers were later involved in accidents in Waltham. The bar’s owner, whom Hardiman could not recall, said he would not appeal the decision to the Massachusetts Alcohol Beverage …
