Queens hospitality industry calls on state Legislature to bring back to-go alcoholic beverages


Restaurant owners and community leaders came together at Neir’s Tavern in Woodhaven on Wednesday, Feb. 16, to urge the state Legislature to bring back takeout alcoholic beverages permanently. 

All across the state, legislators and members of the hospitality industry held press conferences to call on state lawmakers to finally pass legislation that would bring back to-go drinks. These press conferences took place simultaneously as the budget subcommittee held a hearing on economic development today to show the overwhelming support for this legislation as a way to stimulate the economy.
