For three days New Yorker where filled with fear, dread, and above all, pure undeniable anger. We were sharpening our pitchforks and gathering enough animal print pants to create thousands of pitchforks. We didn’t know where to strike first; should we go after the restaurants, the mayors office, or even the White House itself? And god only knows that if it came to that, there’s no doubt in my mind that within a weeks time your would see a mob of angry New Yorkers in the capital.
For three day, three days far to long, New Yorkers were given the message that our beloved bottomless brunch was illegal. Our two hour all you can drink mimosas, our endless strawberry bellinis, our never ending Bloody Marys, gone from our lives. It was said that “The ABC law prohibits from selling, serving, delivering, or offering to patrons an unlimited amount of drinks during any set period of time for a fixed price”, under Section 117-A.
Thankfully for us, and luckily for the rest of the country, this whole bottomless brunch scare was apparently just one big joke. A very mean and dangerous joke might I add, but a joke none the less.
