Closing Time for the Cabaret Law?


One of New York’s oldest and stupidest nanny-state edicts — the infamous Cabaret law — may soon be history. Apparently Mayor Bloomberg, usually the biggest party-pooper in the Big Apple, would like to reform or repeal the prohibition on dancing without a license.

Let the the sinful gyrations commence.

    Will this time be different? The administration has said over and over again that they will repeal the Cabaret laws but so far it’s been nothing but more nanny state BS.

    But what do you expect from NYC Government?

    We can dance if we want to
    We can leave Bloomberg behind
    ‘Cause Bloomberg don’t dance and if he don’t dance
    Well he’s no friend of mine

    I used to represent Veruka. They got fined for cabaret law violations almost as often as Fire Department crap. Another revenue-raiser for the City, unlikely to be repealed anytime soon.
