Joining us okay.
If this -- drank.
Yeah I could not -- this year in New York City at a restaurant and movie theater.
Are green and yes they're all banned anything ever -- shore so last week the nearest city.
A pan out frown on the current health unanimously backed a sugary drinks -- -- basically anything that's over.
32 ounces I'm sorry sixteen and it's it's.
Sell in movie theaters -- as a restaurant any small business can't tell anything larger than that sixteen ounce drink.
Okay because Mayor Bloomberg -- It is trying Paula I just read this this is sixteen point nine -- announces yes but water is okay.
Obviously but this isn't that -- it's not acting that's that a lot of people -- sell Kansas -- yeah a lot of people are so he -- about this because they're saying you know I want have a big -- then who cares let me out of legal and they feel like you're New -- becoming an -- the -- all -- that hearing.
All over the place -- not popular among business owners and why really -- -- is it would be are caught selling anything over that sixteen ounce when man it's a 200 dollar fine every single time your hot selling.
Sort of -- gonna have Blake I guess they're religious are inspecting and he actors and restaurant yeah.
So you have six months to comply and you spoke to many business yes I walk -- -- -- square yesterday to see you let our local small business owners think about this and they are not -- not -- now.
There would be happy because maybe people -- two drinks from.
While that's the thing so.
That's what so many critics this ban have to think because they're saying if people want to have that -- drink they're just gonna -- to either -- three.
You know it and some people might do it just -- defiant and go against the bank tips -- He's of them had to -- so I spoke -- -- tonic -- which is right on the block from -- -- is here and there manager -- -- Hernandez when -- -- did he said funny -- we just got these twenty ounce -- in from -- -- to send them all back they have to use them well he's going to send them back because really you know limiting its -- where they -- only three quarters -- I have -- is gonna take that I'm not turn out our seas -- might end up causing him more money -- send them back gonna have to -- all these -- -- and he told me that about 85%.
That drinks at -- out during daytime hours.
Aren't those soft drinks -- and -- About 5050.
For happy hour on our soft drinks the other 50% -- of alcohol and you know after dinner drinks and all that so.
He said it's not a huge profit center for obviously alcohol brings in more money but that.
Overall he's just those currently see the point and that he said -- might -- you know might get people thinking all of -- what kind of calories they're consuming -- -- using them but he he doesn't love the ideal.
-- mcdonalds here in new York and now nationwide.
Yes -- posting.
Calories on their menu that most city show that you -- quarter it.
They haven't really easy you're -- McDonald's chances are not looking eat healthy anyway I -- 500 calorie big Mac exactly what he could and I got his sentiment sense of how big.
-- -- -- A restaurant bar company that I think -- So it depends because it didn't even those cuts I did going to TGI Friday's -- and they obviously they're corporates are they.
Their manager wasn't really willing to talk to me but I noted they have bigger -- I wanna say they're like twenty you're 24 ounce in -- definitely bigger than the size of those huge big -- where those 32 right.
I'm but I know that some restaurants have bigger one so.
I also went to this world famous little it really -- area which is right around our offices while.
And their managers -- to me he thinks that this is just totally ridiculous he said.
There businesses are readying compliance as soon as they heard that the ban went through it started complying right away which is mark because those 200 dollar finds her head and I yeah that's a lot of money is no he said they start -- right -- -- he said.
Quote there's more important things for us we thinking about than what people are eating and drinking and how much -- it.
Which is certain degree mark yes then I have one more please cafe Manhattan -- in -- -- and there manager also told me that.
They started compliance even as this whole decision is being -- -- with the panel for the -- -- he said that as soon as it was brought up.
They decide to comply it was unanimous approval then nine to zero well -- the -- -- to attack six months from now okay so.
Yes he's at parity complying and that he thinks is actually gonna hurt those big movie here is an -- more pressure I don't know.
That explains how much money they bring you would hurt small business more -- so -- listening here in New York six months from now he won't be able to get a twenty ounce.
During that a lot of sugar and it if you.
Are listening from another state it could be coming to -- -- state.
