Default NYC restaurants band together to ban Andrew Cuomo from dining in their establishments

I know that this is pretty much just ceremonial at this point as Cuomo has shut these establishments down, but I do find it hilarious that he is basically creating groups of people that want nothing to do with him. I'm sure DeBlasio will also be included in this ban.

NYC restaurants band together to ban Andrew Cuomo from dining in their establishments


A group of New York City restaurants has joined together to ban Gov. Andrew Cuomo from dining at their establishments in reaction to his lockdown policies.

“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.

Members of a Facebook group by the name of “NYC Restaurant Open,” which is comprised of several restaurant and bar owners from the city, have signaled support for the Cuomo ban.

“Completely schizophrenic behavior,” one group member said. "How are they coming up with these rules is beyond any logical reasoning.”

“He can dine at Gracie Mansion if wants hospitality in Manhattan,” another member added. “He ain’t getting it here!”

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.

“In New York City, you put the CDC caution on indoor dining together with the rate of transmission and the density and the crowding, that is a bad situation,” Cuomo said when announcing the new round of restrictions.

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.

"It doesn't seem like we can do business," said Mac’s Public House owner Danny Presti, who was arrested earlier this month in connection to refusing lockdown orders. "So here's what we're going to do for everybody: We're going to give away everything for free. So now you can come to Mac's Public House, and you can eat for free and you can drink for free. We just ask that you do make a donation toward us so that we can still pay our bills."

"We refuse to abide by any rules and regulations put forth by the Mayor of NYC and the Governor of NY State," a sign on the bar’s window said.

Someday, and hopefully soon, business owners will realize that Democrats do NOT have their back unless they are helping to fund Democratic campaigns. The sooner they come to that realization, the better off this country will be.

I can understand and grieve for these businesses. Life sucks sometimes.

Yes, life sucks sometimes. But bad policy by elected officials piles on and makes things worse. That is the point in case you missed it.

Life sucks worse when you can't avoid left wing loons. NYC restaurant owners can't void LW loonies.

I don't sorry for any of these restaurant owners considering the fact most of them voted fro Cuomo.

I actually agree with this. It is too insulting to the Russian Tyrants.

When their actions and especially their ideological mindset and methods are comparable, then comparison makes itself.

Anti-Religious ideology that
•Promotes the state's edicts/values and state "science" ABOVE religion.
•Marginalize those outside of new ideology
•Socially cancel and harass
•Expel and or block from political positions, academia and media,
•Fine and eventually jail those that comply with the states NEW ever changing world view.

It's exactly what the the Russian, Chinese, and Cambodian communist party did Salt.
I'm not sure why i should pretend like it's NOT happening here more and more.

Can you give me a few good reasons why i should think that the Current U.S. LEFT is accepting and accommodating toward traditional Christian faith?

Should the last bullet refer to those that DON'T comply with the State's world view?

Terrific comment.
