NEW YORK The New York State Liquor Authority said it has extended the deadline for applications for all-night New Year’s Eve permits after only 16 restaurants, bars and clubs had requested the permits on time, a far cry from the 611 that applied for the license last year.
The new deadline is Dec. 5. The $36 permit allows operators to stay open until 8 a.m. on Jan. 1. General closing time is 4 a.m.
