What would George Washington be like as a hot millennial with a man bun? Apparently, an internet sensation! After we posted a photo of the hipster George portrait commissioned by Farmers & Distillers yesterday, everyone seemed to have an opinion. The painting by artist Nathan Loda, which hangs in the restaurant’s dining room, just seemed to be begging to be a Ryan Gosling-esque meme. So, happy Friday:
