In what was probably the least necessary study of all time, we now have scientific proof that New Yorkers are obsessed with brunch. Researchers from the University of Arizona took on the daunting task of compiling millions of tweets and found that more than any other city, people in New York tweeted the most about brunch-related topics, with popular hashtags including #BottomlessMimosas, #eggs and #Sarabeths. Great work, everyone. Keep those crucial #eggs tweets coming. [NYP]
