Crumbs & Whiskers, Georgetown’s two-year-old destination cafe for cat cuddles and coffee, is adding alcohol into the mix for the first time this month.

Starting on Monday, January 8, the cafe (3211 O Street NW) is launching a BYOB promotion through the end of the month. The cafe, which fits around 20 humans at a time, houses homeless cats to facilitate adoptions.

For all reservations 4:45 p.m. and later, 21-and-up customers can bring in booze and get tipsy with furry feline friends. Only beer and wine will be allowed through the door (liquor isn’t invited). There’s also java, tea, and macarons for sale.

Reservations are in 70-minute blocks, but attendees can potentially have more time to keep drinking and petting if space permits, an employee tells Eater.

The alcohol arrangement is the first of several changes coming to the cafe; expect interior design alterations coming soon. Crumbs & Whiskers, D.C.’s first cat cafe, expanded to Los Angeles in 2016.
