Huh? Bloomberg’s Soda Ban Exempts 7-11. Long Live the Big Gulp!
Via New York Times:
And just when you thought Bloomberg's nanny-laws couldn't get any stupider, they do.
[. . .] Q. What places are excluded?
A. Large drink containers will still be available at convenience stores and grocery stores — in other words, places that are not regulated by the city’s health department. Places that receive regular health inspections from the city, including street vendors, bowling alleys and restaurants, will all have to abide by the ban. The convenience store 7-Eleven will not, so the Big Gulp will live on. . .
