Bad news for cocaine dealers: with less than a day left to apply, only a few dozen spots around town have submitted the necessary paperwork in order to stay open into the night on New Year's Eve. A new, earlier deadline and the State Liquor Authority's tightening the leash on which places they'll let stay open until 8 a.m. has led to only 39 bars filing for permits. Last year there were 400. And even among those 39, six have already been denied. Rob Bookman from the New York Nightlife Association thinks the new deadline is responsible, telling the Post, "It used to be that you didn't have to file until 10 days before New Year's Eve. There was no outreach besides the SLA's Web site, which no one reads."
