A reader sends a damn good question:

Hi Stranger Staff!

I am one in an office of about 70 people who are furloughed. While we usually spend our days answering cancer-related questions for the public, we are reduced to aimlessly hoping we can go back to work soon and cursing this mindless shutdown.

Obviously, this involves day-drinking.

Are there any bars that are offering furlough specials? We have no guarantee that our wages will be reimbursed, so are thrifty but need to collectively drown our sorrows.


Anyone know of any? (Meanwhile, Alex and friends, Cocktail Compass can definitely help with the happy hours that are currently closest to your cursing.)
