Bar and restaurant owners asking to stay open past 10 p.m. for Bills game
Restaurant and bar owners in the Rochester area are hopeful that an appeal to the state might let them stay open for all of the Saturday night Buffalo Bills game, instead of having to close at 10 p.m. as they’re currently required to.
The city of Buffalo and some Erie County lawmakers have now appealed to Gov. Cuomo to extend the coronavirus curfew, at least for Saturday night so Bills fans can get out and enjoy an entire game in their local restaurants and watering holes… and struggling sports venues can get some badly needed business.
The city of Rochester, which is considered in an “orange zone” is asking the state simply that restaurants in the orange zone be allowed to serve indoors at all.
Under state COVID-19 rules, orange zone restaurants can only serve takeout, delivery or outdoors.
