Listen up New Yorkers! Governor Cuomo has said that bars must serve more substantial meals than just a bowl of chips to qualify being within NY State health guidelines.
This all started when bars, desperate for business after months of lockdown, to get patrons in by offering cheap nibbles to poke fun at more party pooper legislation.
At the time, what constituted a meal was vague so a bar in Rochester, NY invented ‘Cuomo Chips‘ for $1 to provide an innovative way to not burden cash-strapped customers ordering a full priced meal.
Ah, but Cuomo had to stay in their pocket. Forget if patrons just wanted a refreshing beer after a hard day’s work. They must eat something that he tells them is appropriate. Cuomo Chips don’t qualify with State Liquor Authority rules!
Seriously, are there any adults left in the room? Can bars and restaurants be allowed to operate menus as they see fit without another list of onerous regulations to comply with?
What a joke. Oh, LA is following similar guidelines. You’ll never guess which party is pushing these rules? Would you believe Democrats? Who knew?
