Happy Hour for Babies Causes Stir at Brooklyn Bar

Babyfication of everything continues at Greenpoint's Pencil Factory

Hey, did we ever tell you about the time we were at Union Hall and this hipster mommy changed her wailing spawn's diaper right there on the couch next to us while we tried to choke down our pint of Sixpoint? True story. (When we objected, she countered it was "probably only number one." Oh, well in that case.)

And now Greenpoint's Pencil Factory is institutionalizing ladybreeders getting tipsy with their Bugaboos in a public place with "Mom and Baby Happy Hour," which takes place every Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30PM (at which point, we suppose, the real drinkers get out of work).

So many questions! Are daddies welcome too? Will the bartender offer to warm little Mackenzie's bottle for you? Seeing as the point of happy hours is usually to imbibe as much as possible, at what point of fitshacedness is a mommy with an infant in her care officially cut off? And as Gowanus Lounge asks, will there be a breastfeeding circle too? After all, this is the same neighborhood that brought us a certified lactation consultant. Perhaps infamous breastfeeder Kelly Rutherford can stop by in-between scenes (or divorce proceedings).
