I was in a Manhattan saloon yesterday and commented that the bowls of pretzels and peanuts that were always present were now absent, and the bartender said they were no longer allowed to have them out. He gave the impression that this was via the Board of Health, but I don't know if I buy that. Anyone have any actual information about this? I searched online but didn't come up with anything solid.
