No, there aren't any MLCC guidelines in New York


With Winnipeg having among the most confusing and poorly enforced bar and alcohol regulations in North America, and me trying to do my best to teach 'em to first-year Creative Communications students last week, here's a little reminder that Manitoba's guidelines do not extend to New York: a picture I recently took of the famous Continental bar in the East Village.

Check out the sign under the marquee: yep, that's five shots of anything for $10. Here's to hoping the woman on the ladder isn't changing "anything" to "nothing."

By the way, it's true that the MLCC regulations allow for advertising "Happy Hour," while the CRTC regulations do not allow it. I need a drink.
