The State’s recent decision to remove cluster zone restrictions and permit indoor dining in New York City are welcome news, but with the Super Bowl only days away, it’s time to turn attention to lifting the 10 pm curfew.

You can safely operate your establishment at any time, including past 10 pm. Compliance with the government’s restrictions is dependent on your commitment to following the rules – and if you can do it at 9 pm you can do it at 11 pm.

Please take a moment to use this link to send a short message to Governor Cuomo. Or you can call the Governor’s office between 9 am and 5 pm at 1-518-474-8390.

Whether you use the online message form or if you choose to call, let’s send a consistent message to Governor Cuomo:

Lift the 10 pm curfew on restaurants and taverns – let us stay open to midnight

You are working hard to keep your businesses afloat and protect your patrons and staff. Lifting the curfew for two hours will provide an additional table turn for restaurants and will encourage customers to come out to their neighborhood tavern without having to scurry out before they turn into pumpkins at 10 pm.

Send your message or make you call now – we only have a few days to convince the Governor to do this before Super Bowl Sunday!
