Bone Lick Brunch

Sunday was New Year's Day, so I figured I should get off to a good start and go to church. I invited my friend Holly to join me at Church of the Village. Afterwards, we headed around the corner to check out Bone Lick Park on Greenwich Avenue.
I told Holly I'd noticed their sign for an hour of unlimited bloody marys, mimosas or frozen margaritas during their $14.95 "Southern brunch." (All photos courtesy of Yelp, including this apparently outdated menu.)
We thought it sounded too good to be true, but the waiter assured us it was exactly what the sign promised. He'd ring up our orders, and for the next hour, he'd bring us a fresh cocktail every time we wanted one. Well, bring it on!
Holly had the pulled pork with potatoes and scrambled eggs. She's a North Carolina native and gave the meat a thumbs-up.  
I had fried chicken with cheese grits and cole slaw. Very tasty. I feel a return trip is in order so I can evaluate their mac and cheese and pulled pork for myself. Do you think they serve sweet tea??

The best part was when the preacher and his wife walked into the restaurant and came over to tell us hello -- after they'd ordered their first round of bloody marys. I love a man of God who knows a good deal when he sees one!

P.S. Fun fact about the decor for my Cola-Cola collecting friends -- that's the original sign from the Coca-Cola bottling plant in Long Island City.

This sounds like my kind of place! Hysterical about the preacher!

You know, I pass that place all of the time and have never gone. Glad to see it gets good reviews! I will have to try it...
