Tapping head guy meme goes here

Can't spread the virus at your bar if you don't have a liquor license

Some conservative butthurt over the facct that we didn't nuke the Seattle Autonomous Zone and thus decided to show that he could be an idiot, too.

FTA: "Presti also appealed to the NYC Sheriff to "stop oppressing citizens," and in a montage set to Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth," Presti accused officers with the sheriff's department of "playing the role of foot soldiers dedicated to new age dictators in the world's greatest city."

I would love to hear his opinion on Black Lives Matter.

Cuomo can be a bully, and sometimes that can be a good thing.

Did the liquor board's American flag have gold fringe?  If so, they clearly don't have jurisdiction and this is an act of maritime piracy against an autonomous collective with no wish to rejoinder with their entity.

/I feel gross typing sovereign citizen nonsense, even for a joke.

Back in the day, before NoHo went entirely smoke fee, there were a few bars that held out. One had a "private Club" that cost $.25 a year, that used a back up bar for overflow, with pressurized door so that smokers had a bar for themselves. And it worked for a while. A while. In the same way that the smoke and game club down the road used membership to have cigar and whiskey dinners. But for allthe effort,3eventually the will of the people won out.

These jackholes? They deserves whatever cones their way. Please, take their liquor licenses. That will learn businesses fast. Like Toot Sweet.

your head can only get so high when it's wedged up your ass

"Oh you're an 'autonomous zone'?  Well that's fine, you certainly don't need this state issued liquor license then..."

Mac's is celebrating its one year anniversary today. A man who answered the phone at Mac's on Sunday declined to comment.

Presti : "I may not win this war or this battle, I might lose my establishment, but I'm going to be able to go home to my kids and my head is gonna be held up high."

His kids: "Our father is a farking idiot"

He will be able to hold his head up high when he tells his kids he can't feed them or send them to college!

When you can't appeal to humanity or acting like a contributing community member, the answer is to always threaten a business owner's livelihood - it's the American way.

FTFA: In an attempt to work around the lack of a liquor license, Presti announced that Mac's would offer customers free food and beverages, for a suggested donation.

Hey NY Farkers - free beer!

TFA goes on to say that this butt-twang is keeping the place open to serve food and non-alcoholic beverages for donations. And sure enough, some penis-fiber came in and paid $100 for a glass of water. Looks like they're going to need another biatch-slap.

So he could lose his main source of revenue and his solution to that is to offer the rest of his inventory for free.

Leave it to a Republican to not understand how basic math (let alone business) works.

Didn't work in Portland, why would Staten Island be different?

Just to take a moment to point this out.....

When you people make fun of Jersey, the person you have in mind is from Staten Island.

Or the pine barrens, but pineys really don't count as people.

Yeah but you guys still have The Sopranos.

Can't blame Staten Island or Long Island for that.

Pull their liquor and food licenses. Arrest and jail the owner(s) and any managers who participated.

The business can re-apply for their licenses on January 2, 2022.

The people are still able to make a choice about their (my body, my choice) lives and still smoke at the bar?

After the borough's positive testing rate rose to 4.15% last week, Cuomo designated the south part of the island an orange zone, with the northern part of Staten Island declared a precautionary yellow zone.

The yellow zone is for eating and drinking customers only. There is no drinking in the orange zone.

Destroying your own livelihood out of sheer stubborn stupidity is nothing to be proud of.

I have a feeling the state liquor board will remember his name when/if he applies for another liquor license after this business folds.

His business was never going to succeed normally.
This way he cons the rubes into supporting him long enough to make some bank.
Could stretch it out for a long time. "Look how I am a victim!"

If that is spray paint on the sidewalk then a ticket for vandalism should been added on top of that. Sometimes you really do need to kick them when they are down!

The Toronto solution.
Legal entry supervised by police, with Board of Health, and all the others.
They change the locks, and shut it all off.

You're an autonomous zone? Great. Of course, you have to make your own electricity and potable water and you can't leave the property without a passport. Good luck fending off burglars and fighting fires. We're all rooting for you.

But it is equally true that in every well-ordered society charged with the duty of conserving the safety of its members the rights of the individual in respect of his liberty may at times, under the pressure of great, dangers, be subjected to such restraint, to be enforced by reasonable regulations, as the safety of the general public may demand.
