Soda Ban to Change Bottle Service, Kiddie Birthday Parties

New, 23 comments

Mayor Bloomberg's long-in-the-works soda ban is going into effect in less than three weeks. After March 12, any restaurant that has a letter grade will have to comply with the new rule prohibiting the sale of sugary beverages larger than 16 ounces. The Post runs down all the ways that this ban will change service at bars and restaurants throughout this city. Here are the big ones:

· No more 2-liter sugary sodas with Domino's deliveries
· No more pitchers of sugary soda at kiddie birthday pizza parties
· No more carafes of sugary soda (or cranberry juice) with bottle service at nightclubs
· No more pitchers of sugary soda at bowling alleys
· No more 60 oz pitchers/20 oz glasses of sugary soda at Dallas BBQ
After March 12, New York will be a pale shadow if its former, sugar-crazed self.

Important Note: Under the new rules, you will still be able to buy as much soda as you want from a store, and smoothies and diet sodas will not be subject to the ban.
