12 Dismayed Reactions To “Bottomless Brunch” Being Illegal In NYC

When it came to light that New Yorkers’ hallowed tradition of weekend drunching is actually against the law, they took to the internet to vent their outrage.

On Feb. 25, Eater published a short but very important post, pointing to the illegality of New Yorkers’ beloved “bottomless brunches.”

Specifically, the law prohibits “selling, serving, delivering or offering to patrons an unlimited number of drinks during any set period of time for a fixed price.”

For many New Yorkers, whose weekends and social lives hinge around the $20 “all you can drink for two hours” deals offered ubiquitously, this is devastating.

1. Some New Yorkers are willing to relinquish their other freedoms to retain this one.

2. Others are boycotting the country as a whole.

3. New Yorkers are saying “WE ARE SOBER, AND WE REFUSE TO STAY THIS WAY MUCH LONGER.”

HELL IS REAL.
