This Week in Bushwick: Whiskey for Breakfast

Ugh, Mondays, right? The daily grind. At a certain point, don’t we all start to wake up every day wondering why we’re not slamming back shots of whiskey with our morning coffee? Well, maybe not exactly, but if you happen to be at Bushwick during the morning this week, it’s a viable option.

Wisely, our friends over at Skytown Cafe have added a full espresso bar, “The Counter,” to their operation, in collaboration with the team at Tar Pit Cafe and Ceci Cela baked goods. And, to celebrate, they’ve rolled out “A Shot & A Shot,” which is more or less exactly what it sounds like: a free shot of espresso and a free shot whiskey, available between 8am and 9am every day this week. “Limit one per customer, because anything more would be philistinic,” the owners note.

Co-owner Jeff Pan also explained via email, “Various unaccredited health experts have conclusively agreed that with its low carbohydrate content and zero fat, whiskey fits most, if not all, of the criteria for food consumption in a balanced, healthy diet.” Which is not necessarily untrue, we think? Regardless, you now know where to get your free morning whiskey (and coffee) this week. Do with this information what you will.
