got the bikes tuned up and went for the first Tour du Brooklyn this spring: 
Northeast Kingdom for carbo-load brunch
Pearl’s Social and Billy Club for Sriracha margaritas, lemon ginger whiskey cocktails, & a shot of fresh ginger juice
ride to Red Hook & meet friends at Ice House for beers & sweet potato fries
take the scenic ride home stopping in Grand Army Plaza & riding along the waterfront
opt out of going to more bars in our neighborhood, & stay in to make bourbon ginger lemon cocktails, eat homemade vege chili, and stay up until 3am chatting about love in the way that you feel is appropriate after 3 strong drinks, but probably isn’t appropriate at all.

You know you’re a next level 5 Leaves regular when you call the bar to see who’s working (because one of the bartenders makes a delicious spiked mexican hot chocolate that isn’t on the menu yet), and they recognize your voice.
