I can't speak to towns outside of Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, and Brookline, but in those towns, BYOB is illegal in all cases except for the brief period when the restaurant has applied for a liquor (or beer/wine or beer/wine/cordial) license and is awaiting a decision from the local licensing authority.
I do know of some places that illicitly allow BYOB, but I think it's a bad idea to air their names here: it might ruin the party for everyone!

Sorry, folks. Didn't realize that this was a potentially controversial topic. We'll pretty much stop this thread from this point on, at least to the point of not mentioning any restaurants.
