Group of Owners Ban Gov. Cuomo From Their NYC Restaurants


Andy Cuomo just lost access to several eateries in the Big Apple. The Facebook Group ‘NYC Restaurants Open has announced that its members will refuse the governor service, and they were not the least bit polite about it.

“He can eat at some sh—- roadside diner outside of Albany but he will not be served anywhere in New York City, known universally as the world’s greatest dining destination! If he has to use the restroom he can go pee on my street-corner,” said bar owner Larry Baird.

I’m not some foodie, but I like to eat, and I’ve had some remarkable meals at sh**** roadside diners, though not recently.

That said, good for them.

Many members of the Facebook Group NYC Restaurants Open applaud the Executive Order banning Cuomo from being served at all New York City establishments. One member stated “Completely schizophrenic behavior! How are they coming up with these rules is beyond any logical reasoning”

An executive order, very nice.

I have no idea how many establishments are looking to ban Cuomo, but I bet the number is growing.

Cuomo reinstated his indoor dining ban in New York City earlier this month despite resistance from business owners who have struggled through the governor’s pandemic response. …

Some bar and restaurant owners have gotten creative amid the restrictions, including one bar that declared itself an “autonomous zone,” offering patrons food and drinks for free but encouraging them to leave donations.

And it’s not just Cuomo. One Bar owner put this sign up for everyone to see. “We refuse to abide by any rules and regulations put forth by the Mayor of NYC and the Governor of NY State.”

Nashua, New Hampshire, might want to take that advice if the Mayor and Alderman institute a curfew. And then consider voting for a new Mayor and Alderman.
