Lou Gelormino Takes Us To Mac's Public House On Staten Island
Louis Gelormino, lead attorney representing Mac’s Public House in Staten Island, NY, joins the Dom Giordano Program. Last week, when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo mandated a 10PM curfew at bars, Mac’s stayed open after hours. Due to this, along with other decisions throughout the pandemic, owner Danny Presti was escorted from the bar in handcuffs Tuesday night. On Wednesday, protestors gathered to support the bar owner, protesting against New York City and the state for overbearing policies that are making it nearly impossible to operate a small business in the city. Gelormino explains the entire situation, and lays forth what he and Presti hope to battle in court. Then, bringing it local, Dom is joined by Ian Smith of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, who was both at the protest yesterday on Staten Island, and suffered through a similar legal battle against the state of New Jersey.

Then, Siegel and Giordano discuss the situation in Staten Island, in which a bar named Mac’s Pub was told to close down even though local competitors are allowed to stay open. Also, Siegel tells the audience whose advice that he trusts when dealing with the Coronavirus.
