Known oddly as “Cuomo Chips” the mandate that New Yorkers must buy food with their booze has been ended. According to reports, legislators approved an amendment this week that ended the controversial move which many argued was unfair to begin with.

“The purchase of food with alcohol [is] arbitrary and not based on science,” state Sen. John Mannion (D-Syracuse) said during the chamber debate.

“I’ve yet to find any scientific literature that finds a correlation between ordering food with your drink, and stopping the spread of COVID-19.”
