For those of you lucky enough (or unlucky enough, depending on how you look at it) to have brunched in New York, you may have encountered their irritating prohibition era law that banned the sale of booze (even mimosas!) before noon.
This law dates back to former NYC Mayor and current high school Nicki Minaj attended, Fiorello La Guardia, and is on the chopping block after current NY Governor Cuomo declared it to be “the most bizarre, arcane, frustrating, and maddening law that you can imagine.”
Damn. Governor Cuomo really wants to get drunk before church on Sunday, and honestly, I don’t blame him at all.
If Gov Cuomo’s proposal goes through, any restaurant or bar that already has a liquor license could start selling booze as early as 8am on Sunday—so you know what that means: four more hours of Sunday brunch. Well, okay, maybe like two more hours. You know you and your besties are not getting out the door on Sunday before 10am.
