Party Poopers Eye Unhappy Hour
By GARY BUISO
Happy hour in the city could end if Department of Health policy party-poopers go ahead with a proposal to outlaw beer and booze specials at bars and restaurants, sources told The Post.
Its absolutely been discussed, confirmed a department source. It goes to show you the spirit with which they operate. Everyone is a child.

Those people are smoking crack! Happy hour is the shnizzle..
They should call it Bloomberg induced Prozac stupor. That’s where they’re headed anyway.
I’m pretty sure M. Stanley Dukakis beat NYS by almost 30 years, banning “Happy Hour” in MA shortly after his triumphant return to the Governor’s office in the 1980s.
Then have free-food hour and everyone will get fat,
then they’ll ban that.
Pass a law saying that all government bureaucrats, elected or appointed, need to wear webcams wired to the Internet 24/7 so we can make sure they aren't accepting bribes or engaging in other corrupt activities.
For the children. If we can save just one life, it will be worth it.
We’re not Secret Service agents.
MA is looking to lift that ban - with the casinos getting lined up to build in the state the bars/restaurants want equal footing with the casinos on ‘gifts to’ patrons.
It’s been illegal here for years.
Remember! Professional politicians and their government knows what is best for you. You should never attempt to think for yourself at home.
Call it 0bama hour and the regulators will approve.
Correct. I believe 1984 was the year it went into effect.
Bar owners did come up with a clever way to circumvent the ban however. They started putting free appetizers at the bar like chicken wings, mini-egg rolls, meatballs on sticks, even shrimp cocktails. So while they had to charge full price for the drinks, they were still reeling in after-work customers with the free food.
Sure wish I did...
mmmmm...I love me some Kellers.
So many of the older burger places have flamed (no pun intended) out.
Everybody I know that has left Texas still begs for a Whataburger care package!
Those seniors are a terror on the roads during commute time.
We had an old time burger joint here that was from the 40’s until about 2 years ago.
They had malts and car shows
I loved that joint.
They tore it down and built a DQ
I screameed... WWWHHHHHYYYYyyyyy!!!!!!
California has good food and watering holes.
To bad you can light a cigar anywhere in the state anymore.
