Search N.Y. ABC. LAW § 117-a : NY Code - Section 117-A: Unlimited drink offerings prohibited

1. No licensee, acting
  individually or in conjunction with one or more licensees, shall:
    (a) offer, sell, serve,  or  deliver  to  any  person  or  persons  an
  unlimited  number  of  drinks  during any set period of time for a fixed
  price.
    (b) allow a person, agent, party organizer, or promoter, as such terms
  shall be defined by the authority in  rule  and  regulation,  to  offer,
  sell,  serve, or deliver to any person or persons an unlimited number of
  drinks during any set period of time for a fixed price.
    (c) advertise, promote, or charge a  price  for  drinks  that  in  the
  judgment  of the authority creates an offering of alcoholic beverages in
  violation of the purposes and intent of this section, or  which  in  the
  judgment  of  the  authority  is an attempt to circumvent the intent and
  purposes of this section, such as, but not limited to, offerings of free
  drinks, or multiple drinks for free or for the price of a single  drink,
  or  for  a  low  initial price followed by a price increment per hour or
  other period of time, or for such a minor amount that in the judgment of
  the authority the pricing would constitute an attempt to circumvent  the
  intent and purposes of this section.

  and any employees, or agents of such licensee.

  apply  to  private functions not opened to the public, such as weddings,
  banquets, or receptions, or other similar functions, or to a package  of
  food   and  beverages  where  the  service  of  alcoholic  beverages  is
  incidental to the event or function.
    4. The authority shall investigate  any  documented  allegation  of  a
  violation of this section upon a complaint by any person.
