Bushwickians aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed, it’s true. Their parallel to the L.A. ilk has been noted many times before–particularly since most of New York City is made up of Californians. And so, you’ll have to take it with a grain of salt when you hear that the international trauma known as Brexit is being interpreted by most Bushwickians to infer some sort of breakfast or brunch special.
“We’ve had a lot of people come in during the past few days asking for the Brexit special,” stated a server at Sincerely Burger, which, incidentally had to rebrand because no one likes British food, and now, even less so the British themselves.
Elsewhere, including Roberta’s and Mominette, there have also been many inquiries into what the Brexit special has to offer. “Are their bottomless mimosas involved?” asked one recent transplant, Mary-Ann Duvet, a 33-year-old from Omaha who read about Bushwick in an old issue of Vogue. As servers throughout the neighborhood continue to correct this misconception, Britain holds the universe in the balance.
