East Village IHOP Employs Bouncer To Control The Rowdy

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Here’s a sign of the times.

The new International House of Pancakes in the East Village has hired a bouncer.

He stands guard at the “24 hour” spot on East 14th Street from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m. He’s reportedly an off-duty police officer hired to keep intoxicated patrons under control.

The IHOP opened Tuesday.

    The short solution to lots of problems would be for EVERY BUSINESS to have Normal Daytime hours…24/7 you are asking for trouble. Making more money isn’t worth the trouble that is caused…as far as dealing with rich drunks, let the police pick them up on the streets and treat them like any other drunk…

    God who cares, I remember during my younger years we had the same problem. They should let the people fight, take it outside
