NYC's boozy brunches are saved!

A previous article discussed how New Yorkers were worried their bottomless boozy brunches would soon be coming to an end. But since we New Yorkers are a tough bunch, we weren't going to let this go down without a fight.

Business Insider looked into this story and discovered that these bottomless brunches are actually in fact legal in the state of New York. Praise to the brunch gods!

The rule in question was NY 117-A Unlimited drinks offerings prohibited which prohibits ""selling, serving, delivering or offering to patrons an unlimited number of drinks during any set period of time for a fixed price." One would read that and think oh man, there goes bottomless brunches. However, the New York State Liquor Association told Business Insider that this law doesn't apply to brunches because they are considered "events."

So guess what New Yorkers? Go out and celebrate this win with a nice big, boozy brunch this weekend.
