New York Alcohol On Sunday Before Noon

We all know the drill when it comes to Sunday brunch: roll out of bed, dreary-eyed, and hungover; pound a couple extra-strength Tylenol with a Powerade; and make a sad attempt at brushing your hair and teeth before rolling out to grab some eggs benny and bottomless mimosas. By the time you’ve awoken from your coma and drug yourself to your brunch restaurant of choice, it’s usually somewhere between 12 and 2 that you start on the first of what is sure to be several Bloody Marys.

Sometimes though, you’re not quite as hungover as you expected and are ready to start brunching before noon. For New York brunch-goers, this presents a problem – alcohol sales are sadly banned before noon.

However, the New York brunch scene may finally be about to change for good with the introduction of the “brunch bill.” If passed, the bill would allow New York restaurants to serve brunch-loving early bird Millennials all the prosecco they want before brunch time turns into straight lunchtime. There’s some debate as to whether the bill would come into effect to serve alcohol by 8 a.m. or 10 a.m., but regardless, any change is sure to be a win – and besides, just because I want brunch before noon doesn’t mean I’m waking up before 10:30, ok?

Hopefully if this bill passes, the next time you’re brunching in New York, you’ll be able to start on those pitchers as early as you want so you can get in a good “nap and rally” before going hard again to round out the weekend.
