Democratic Assemblyman, Micah Kellner is proposing a bill that would ban all planned bar crawls in NYC. The bill would put pressure on the bars or pubs themselves to not take part in any organized crawls around the city, by threatening to pull the liquor license of any bar caught sponsoring or promoting an event, which are typically organized bar hopping with discounted drink specials. It wouldn’t ban the public from holding their own crawl, but deter some people in participating in an otherwise pricey crawl. Kellner noted “It’s a danger to themselves and the communities it’s happening in,” Kellner said. “And what we’ve seen is neighborhoods have been inundated, and it’s created a real quality-of-life problem.”
Kellner’s next proposal would be to do away with all candy and toy venders in the city, because they entice sugar rushed behavior and all toys could cause harm or be used as weapons for child on child crimes. Kellner is also not fond of music or kickball.
