#rsrh Mayor Bloomberg’s (NOT-R) War On Happy Hour.

I apparently would not recognize the City if I went back to it today:

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.


Sources said the happy-hour ban is being pushed by the agency’s marathon-running boss, Commissioner Thomas Farley, and is serious enough for one source to say the alcohol lobby had better find itself a good lawyer.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think that Michael Bloomberg leaving the Republican party turned out to be absolutely wizzo for us.  Also: if you think that Bloomberg has a chance in Hell of drawing off any significant GOP support in a hypothetical third-party bid, then… well, I’d like to say that I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.  Alas, under the current regulatory regime in NYC even suggesting that a public structure might be for sale requires prior permitting from three departments, exemptions from seven – and budgeting between six months to a year for the preliminary assessment and pre-application readiness review surveys.

PS: Fish typically rot from the heads down.  Bloomberg can deny that his Unhallowed Hand speaks for him.  Bloomberg is denying it, apparently.  I am likewise allowed to publicly laugh at that as being a farcical fig-feaf from the fascist*… ‘fellow.’

*Again: Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning  was a great book.

  1. Still waiting for the banning of exhalation in NYC under the premise of reducing CO2. It’s coming, you know it is.

  2. Wasn’t the only reason Bloomberg was a Republican in the first place was that he changed parties because he knew he couldn’t win a Democrat primary?
