BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A bar on Hertel Ave. has reopened after voluntarily closing its doors, while under investigation for violating social distancing rules.
M.T. Pockets shut down after a bar patron was arrested. That person was accused of menacing and harassing protesters, and yelling racial slurs last month.
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz says M.T. Pockets came up with a safety plan, which the Department of Health approved.
