According to Staten Island Live, Big Ang‘s famous bar, The Drunken Monkey, has had its liquor license revoked and is closed until further notice!
According to the story, The Drunken Monkey “pleaded no contest” to three SLA offenses which made the state of New York revoke its liquor license on February 10th.
Did that stop the bar from promoting events?
According to the article, the bar’s Facebook page promoted events up through LAST WEDNESDAY.
In addition, while Big Ang was reported as the bar’s owner, it has come to light via this article that she cannot legally own a bar due to her past record as a felon.
The article specifically stated that, according to New York State law, Ang “cannot own a bar unless she has a certificate of relief from civil disabilities, has received a pardon, or has been issued a certificate of good conduct.”
However, Ang’s cousin, SallyAnn Lombardi, is listed as the liquor license holder.
As of Monday, the bar was closed and a sign has been put on the door that the bar is “closed until further notice.”
