Brown Bag Lunch Break

Finally, Ask Gothamist tackles the pressing NYC retail question of our day:

Q: Why do bodegas insist on putting everything in a brown bag, and what's with sometimes putting one item and its brown bag inside a plastic bag?

A: Gothamist shares your curiosity and, from the tone of your email, frustration...We can only assume that bodegas put the paper bags inside plastic ones to make them easier to carry. Paper bags, especially small ones, rarely have handles.

Nailed that one.
