If you can name a meal that is as amazing as brunch, I will have to call your bluff. There is nothing quite up to par. I mean, think about it.
- The acceptable time for brunch ranges anywhere from 10am to 2 (or 3 in my book) pm. So late sleepers- go a head and snooze, the eggs will still be cracking well passed noon.
- The selection of foods involved in brunch are the best ones. Eggs? Absolutely. Pancakes? Hell yeah. Sweet potato, avocado, and goetta hash? You bet your ass. You can order anything. Not a breakfast fan? No problem.. its brunch so order off the lunch menu.
- Its completely acceptable to order alcohol before the sun goes down. There are few times when drinking while its light out is considered the norm: Sporting events, festivals, vacations, anytime during your 4 years of college, and brunch. Automatic seal of approval.
- The general leisurely air about brunch is very appealing. Everyone is living a crazy hectic life now a days. No matter what you do, its probably stressful, time consuming, disorganized (even though you don't want it to be) and unpredictable. Brunch is the more mini version of a mini vacation. Sit back, relax, sip your Bloody Mary and breathe. That is pretty awesome.
Since I love brunch so much, I've decided to go on a quest to find the best brunch I can. There are some lists, of course that I can use for reference. So wish me luck!
