Stingers Bar & Grill in Remsen was charged by the New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) after six people were found in the restaurant on April 3, violating state mandates against social gatherings.
Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente says the people were found sitting and drinking inside the restaurant around 6:30 p.m., but claimed they were just waiting for their takeout orders.
The restaurant now faces a fine of up to $1,000 and possible revocation of its liquor license from the SLA.
On Wednesday afternoon, there was a pink sign on the restaurant's door reading:
“We are offering a curbside ONLY service! No exceptions! This is for your safety, the safety of others and the safety of our employees!!”
