NYC Bars Join Stoli Boycott

From the Facebook page of the NYC Eagle:
Beginning immediately, the Eagle NYC will discontinue the sale of STOLI and any alcoholic product produced in Russia in protest of Russia's anti-gay bill banning the "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations". This archaic bill effectively strips every LGBTQ member in Russia of basic human rights and puts gays in danger of being harmed or even killed because of the anti-gay fervor created by the bill. The bill even applies to tourists. The Russian government is pandering to its constituents basest characteristics in an attempt to elevate it's own image. The Eagle NYC denounces the bill and will continue to support gay rights at home and abroad.
Other NYC venues reportedly joining the boycott: Industry, Elmo, Barracuda. (All three have the same owner.)
