    In case you haven't heard, our friends at Batch Craft Beer + Kolaches are now bringing their breakfast bonanza even earlier and better, with weekdays opening at 7am and weekends at 9am, and all of it resplendent with morning-time favorites like ham, egg, and cheese kolaches; bacon, egg, and cheese kolaches; maple-infused-dough kolaches with egg and sausage; and more. How often can we say "kolache," you wonder? Dunno, citizen – how many can you eat?

    Pitchfork Pretty: Rum for Your Life

    It’s not always about the goddamn tiki, is it? No! Chef Max Snyder’s excellent Eastside eatery is celebrating National Rum Month with a new program that features more than 40 rums from 20-plus countries. With rotating cocktails, flights, and rare finds sure to delight even the most jaded palate, this August at Pitchfork Pretty is shaping up as the most spirited month of tippling in town. (Our reco: Try the “Misfit Rum Flight” for one of those – whattayacallit? – next-level experiences.)

    Pride Parade Treats

    Get you some refreshment while watching the parade go fabulously by this Saturday, citizen. You know that the Coffeehouse at Caroline (right there on the route, with a rainbow balloon arch outside) will have Pride Cookies by Jessica Lopez available all day, right? And this: Caroline Upstairs is featuring Pride Punch – a thirst-busting concoction of Elijah Craig Bourbon, Plantation Pineapple Rum, coconut, pineapple, strawberry, orange, lemon, basil, vanilla bean, sparkling wine, and edible glitter – and the whole thing is garnished with a glitter-dusted basil leaf. Bonus: A portion of proceeds from both the cookie and the cocktail will go to Out Youth.
