Possible Happy Hour ban in New York

Quote:
New York City's Department of Health is discussing a possible ban on happy hour drink specials in the city. Someone in the department told the New York Post that while it had not been formally proposed, it has "absolutely been discussed." The prohibition falls in line with the department's commissioner, Thomas Farley, who has a campaign called "Take Care New York 2012."
Farley's goal is to "reduce risky alcohol use," which would be to decrease alcohol-related hospitalizations from 209 per 100,000 in 2006 to 170 this year. Part of the plan also includes reducing the "density" of alcohol outlets.
Mayor Bloomberg was reported to be furious with Farley about the report because he was not told about the plan.

A source in the Department said, "A lot of DOH employees go to happy hour. It's silly." If it is a success, state law would be required to change and they would join the other 19 states that prohibit happy hour.

If the prohibition in NYC is a success, alcohol companies would likely feel the result.
