New York City’s Chicken Wing Mandate
I'm so glad I'm living in Wyoming.
His latest attempt is his food-with-drink mandate saying chicken wings are not substantial enough food for a bar to serve alcohol.
“There is no bar that only serves alcohol,” Cuomo said at a press conference.
“To be a bar, you had to have food available — soups, sandwiches, etc,” Cuomo claimed. “More than just hors d’oeuvres, chicken wings. You had to have some substantive food — the lowest level of substantive food were sandwiches.”
Cuomo went on to say that it is a state law that food be served with alcoholic beverages, saying, “This is a law going back to the old days. The bar had to have food available, soups, sandwiches — even chips were not enough.”
This all has to do with the State Liquor Authority requiring “substantial” snack purchases in order to sell alcohol.
If you are eating out anywhere in NYC, don't even ask for salt - you are not allowed to have any.
I'll say it again - I'm so glad I live in Wyoming.
