And then they came for the large sodas:
The proposal – expected to be announced formally on Thursday in a City Hall briefing – would take 20-ounce soda bottles off the shelves of the city’s delis and eliminate super-sized sugary soft drinks from fast-food menus.
The administration’s proposal would impose a 16-ounce limit on the size of sugary drinks sold at food service establishments, including restaurants, movie theaters, sports venues and street carts. It would apply to bottled drinks as well as fountain sodas.
The ban would apply only to drinks that contain more than 25 calories per 8 ounces. It would not apply to diet soda or any other calorie-free drink. Any drink that is at least half milk or milk substitute would be exempted

Mike Bloomberg has probably never gone to McSorley’s, where they solve the problem by bringing two twelve-ounce mugs.
Another good reason to move out of NYC.
