It Was Illegal to Do This in Many NYC Bars Until Now
Law makers in New York City repealed a ridiculous law from 1926. Everyone cut loose today in celebration.
According to The New York Times, The New York City Cabaret law was recently repealed after being on the books since 1926. The Cabaret Law prohibited dancing in public city spaces that serve food or drink if they do not possess the license.
Until now you could have been arrested for busting a move at your favorite bar or restaurant but not anymore. You can now do the robot at TGI Fridays, the tango at Buffalo Wild Wings or the Macarena at McDonald's.
This law's repeal comes as another step forward for civil rights as it was was created to keep African American musicians from performing at certain venues. Activists have been fighting this law for the past ten years.
Feel free to bust a move the next time you go out to dinner. Cut a rug for progress.
