New Yorkers can officially drink before noon starting this Sunday

Thanks to super cool Governor Cuomo, the archaic 1920s-era laws banning the sale of alcohol before noon will finally be lifted this weekend. When we first reported on this development in June, the bill had just passed over in Albany. It was delayed for a few months, however, as these government things typically are, but tomorrow will be the official first day in this glorious era of early day-drinking.

So whatever your plans are tonight, make sure to wake up a few hours early to make it to brunch by 10am tomorrow. You'll be getting a whole two extra hours of getting drunk, and for those of us who know that 24 hours in a day is never enough, that's a great thing. Not sure where to go? Check out our handy guide to the best brunch in NYC to pick the right spot.
