Many New York bars and restaurants have got the governor beat on a technicality.

A bar in the lower part of Hudson Valley has found a creative way to allow customers to order food and drinks while keeping the tab low.

Last week, Governor Cuomo mandated stricter regulations for bars and restaurants stating that they cannot serve patrons alcohol unless that buy food as well. Many bars have fought back by offering special menu items like the 'Cuomo Chips' that are gaining popularity in the Saratoga Area.

The Peekskill Public Kitchen has decided to add cheese and crackers to their menu. Patrons can stop in and order them off the menu for 50 cents.

Did you ever think that cheese and crackers would ever be one of the most popular items on a menu at a restaurant?
