A baby walks into a bar and the internet loses its mind. Why is that? To understand why some people truly cannot tolerate infants and young children in bars and restaurants, regardless of how well behaved they and their parents are, Amanda and Daniel talk to a few people who know a thing or two about babies in bars.
First up, writer Kate Willsky lays out the do's and don'ts of grabbing a drink with your baby in tow, and explains why she as a new mom needs a damn cocktail every once in awhile. Then, filmmaker Alison Grasso gives us some historical context to the bar as a community space and Amanda's kids make their Digest debut at The Fly in conversation with restaurateur Nialls Fallon.
Plus, we get into the wildest stories of the past couple weeks, from a rogue tomato in the East River, to the Uberfication of restaurant work and why a vegan woman in Australia is taking her neighbors to the supreme court.
