Bushwickians don’t usually work, but when they do, they like to take along a bag lunch just like any other working stiff. But it wouldn’t be a Bushwick lunch without a somewhat jank twist. So when the official standard bag lunch of Bushwick was announced by the Committee of Epicureans & Stoners, it was only natural that the outcome would be a plastic bag containing nothing more than a slice of pizza (how old said pizza is can be entirely at your discretion) and a bottle of Miller High Life.
One of the five percent Bushwickians who has a job in the city, Trevor Square, reacted to the official lunch choice with elation, exclaiming to The Burning Bush (even though we didn’t ask him for his input), “I feel as though the Committee of Epicureans & Stoners decided on this bag lunch specifically in my honor. I’ve been taking week old pizza and beer to my job at a startup web design company for months.”
The official name of the bag lunch is going to be called the Bag of Bushwick, and will be available to pick up in mass quantity for $10.95 at local outposts like Brooklyn’s Natural, Eric Mini Mart (which has long been selling the Bushwick sandwich) and L-Mo’s. So if you’re headed to Midtown via the L train, be sure to pick up the official bag lunch on your way instead of having to deal with that Pret A Manger shit.
