5 letters, 2 hours & unlimited Mimosas.
Yes, Brunch otherwise known as heaven on earth. Let me paint an all too familiar picture…It’s Saturday morning and you just awoke with a thirst, no not that thirst you had last night but a new one. One that can only be quenched with a goblet sized mimosa, or a poinsettia for all you orange juice haters. When choosing the perfect brunch spot there are many factors one must consider prior to this coveted gathering. Here are a few key factors to consider when making one of the most important decisions of your life, ok ok of your Saturday.
a.k.a how many Bloody Mary’s can you chug before your waiter drops that dreaded check. The typical time is around 2 hours, but if you get lucky or find a way to charm the watch off your waitress you can sometimes stay up to 4 hours. Its also key to know the speed of service at any given joint.
you didn’t think we only went for the drinks. Our favorite Brunch spots usually have a set food menu, that way regardless what you get your paying the same price. I mean when else are you going to get to order that $25 Lobster Eggs Benedict, if your like us then probably never.
Food & drink aren’t the only things to keep in mind when getting your brunch on. Lets not forget about our setting. This can be key to any good day of gluttony, not like there can be a bad day. But let’s just say there is, imagine waiting those excruciating 5 days for brunch only to end up sat next to a group of toddlers slinging hash browns for the hell of it.
