Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced the launch of a new kissing booth to mark the re-opening of New York City when the time comes.

“People are ready to get out and celebrate,” said Mayor de Blasio. “There is no better way to do that than with a good, old-fashioned kissing booth. Get everyone out into the streets together – like New Year’s Eve at Times Square, millions just waiting for the big event.” 

Although names have yet to be released, a source close to the mayor’s office tells Velvet Hamster that there will be 5 kissers rotating through the booth over a 24-hour period.
