NYC Bar Finds An Awesome Loophole in Gov. Cuomo's Latest Restrictions To Stay in Business

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has instituted a restriction in New York that essentially targets bars to keep them closed down.

The restriction requires that all alcohol purchases in the state restaurants require food to be purchased with it as well.

Harvey's Irish Pub in Saratoga decided to find a way around the restriction and keep their doors open.

The order was apparently to counteract a growing trend that New York bars had become places where masks mandates and social distancing requirements were being ignored. Also, the order requires restaurant-goers (including bars) to sit down while consuming their food. That's where they came up with “Cuomo chips.”

That’s right, the owner of Harvey’s, Matthew Bagely, decided to name his solution to meeting the new requirement after the source of the onerous order. As WRGB news reports,

“In Saratoga Springs, Harvey's Irish Pub Owner Matthew Bagely decided to put ‘Cuomo chips’ on everyone's bill, so customers don't have to buy a full meal.

“’I mean why not, they're his chips, they're his rule so he might as well get some recognition and acknowledgment for another little hurdle we have to jump through as business owners,’ Bagely.”

According to one of Cuomo’s senior advisers, the Cuomo Chips satisfy the food-requirement. As Fox News reports,

“Cuomo senior adviser Rich Azzopardi said Friday that the Harvey's chips don’t violate the governor’s food-requirement rule, according to the New York Post.

“’ It’s consistent with the guidance — but you have to be seated,’ Azzopardi said.”

Bagly said that he wasn't out to make a political statement by doing, he's just trying to keep their livelihood without losing their liquor license and if you ask me, this is the smartest way to get around Gov. Cuomo's stupid and arbitrary restriction. Kudos to the man.
