The rules of a dining club in New York state could be a “joke” if you’re not paying attention, a group of diners said on Twitter.
New York state is considering a bill to limit the number of dinners allowed at a restaurant.
The legislation, which was recently introduced by state Sen. Joe Bruno, R-East Brunswick, would also ban the use of mobile devices to “intimate patrons.”
Diners Club of New York is a not-for-profit organization.
The group’s members pay $25 to join and use their members’ credit cards for membership fees.
The restaurant is a former military base and is owned by a former member of the military, according to its website.
Bruno, who chairs the Senate committee that regulates dining clubs, said he hopes the new law will protect people from the “hooligans” who frequent the restaurant, according the New York Post.
“If you think the rules should be changed to protect people’s right to a decent meal, that’s a joke,” Bruno said.
