All that and a bag of “Cuomo Chips.”
A New York pub has figured out a cheap and easy way to comply with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order that bars sales of alcoholic beverages without food: simply selling them a $1 bag of potato chips.
The governor’s new edict says patrons must be seated and order a food item in order to get drinks as part of an effort to curb large booze-fueled gatherings amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In upstate Saratoga Springs, Harvey’s Irish Pub Owner Matthew Bagely immediately put “Cuomo Chips” on customers’ tabs — so they don’t have to pay for 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 told CBS6-WRGB in Albany.
