Poker and Food
In what I would say it a novel innovation, New York may be on the verge of legalising the playing of poker in bars and restaurants.
State Senator John Sabini has introduced a bill that would expressly legalise poker for businesses, that are licensed by the state alcohol beverage control law, provided that these businesses apply for a new "social poker" license.
The bill would limit stakes to being no more than $50 buy in, and a winnings cap of no more than $100.
Don't hold your breath though, there is still a long way to go.
