The New "Blind Tiger" or "Speakeasy"?

Mayor Bloomberg of New York City recently pushed a ban on large-sized beverages, whether called "pop" or "soda" or "cola."  This has been met, predictably enough, by opposition from beverage companies.  Besides being an infringement on individual liberties, will this encourage flouting of the law in The City That Never Sleeps?  (Or is it The City THat Never Showers?) 

I can imagine NYC having some convenience stores serving as blind tigers for oversized beverages.


  1. Hasn't NYC backed down a bit on this one?

  2. I can see the 'two fer' sales starting already.

  3. The Onion had a great satire on super-sized drinks a few years back:,1696/
