For all those times you've been like, "Man, I wish I could start my day with a sweet-ass 7am rave before work", well, now you can (wait, really? Even we're a little surprised... and we're WRITING this...) thanks to Daybreaker.
Yes, you've just woken up, but you'll need to get adjusted to the light, because the darkness of the club can be disorienting at first. Push on, though, because things will get brighter, louder, and much crazier...
Sorry to disappoint anybody looking to get anything more than high-on-life before work, but there's no booze here; just water, coffee, fresh juices, and tea. So... you can't really hide at the bar if you're a wallflower.
Also feel free to pop to the top if the spirit moves you/you work out this much. There are all kinds of people in costumes and wigs, too, so get loose!
Also kind of weird and awesome? If you notice a couple of dudes in suits tapping away on actual typewriters in a corner, talk to them. They'll write you a free haiku on the subject of your choice. We went with "breakfast sandwiches".
oh,youre hungover? get that yogurt outta here and eat this sandwich
And despite not being hungover, we listened, and then went to work.
