are those those hedges that people cut into animal shapes? like in Edward scissorhands?
post #30722 of 46023
I don't know about the Edward Scissorhands part (as I have not seen that motion picture), but yes, it's plants cut into shapes. (It doesn't have to be an animal shape to be topiary, but that is a popular genre.)

I feel like it's one of those things that people find cool to hate on.

Brunch serves a very functional purpose, IMO.

I've never really seen the difference between brunch and eating breakfast late.

I am now in my fortieth year on the terraqueous globe, and it had never occurred to me in all those years that people might have strong opinions about brunch.

This. I and many others choose to eat breakfast late on the weekends. Some restaurants choose to cater to this predilection. The horror.

it's the plebes that make a novelty and and an event and an OpenTable reservation out of it.

pancakes/bacon/eggs are very very easy to make at home. you can over eat that, then just sleep in your own bed afterwards without having to even shower or change from the clothes you slept in. plus you can drink at home and sleep it off right after too.

I like brunch when I'm on vacation... that way I can go to the best brunch place in town on a weekday when its dead and enjoy myself.

A couple weeks back in Boston my wife and I had brunch at The Friendly Toast in Cambridge. The place was so annoyingly hisptery (the waiters were covered in tattoos), and the decor was old 1950's signs kitsch (they had an old christian youth fellowship sign from Kansas) it was easy to hate. Normally I'd avoid it, but it was a tuesday and 11am so we had an awesome brunch (good food and friendly service too).

All of you talking about brunch and hangovers are really arguing over a moot point. Everyone knows Chick-Fil-A breakfast is the answer. It has magical curative powers for hangovers.

Making and cooking breakfast when you're hungover sounds like a nightmare. I've never done it and plan to keep it that way for the rest of my life.

Sorry brah, but In-n-Out trumps Chick-Fil-A for hangover 'breakfasts.'

Fact.

you can literally make pancakes/bacon/eggs simultaneously on a large skillet. 15-20min and you've created enough food to feed a guatemalan family. pour OJ and alcohol of your choice into glass. eat/drink, have sechs with girlfriend/wife and then take a 2hour nap.

The ultimate hang over food is a chorizo breakfast burro.

it all starts at places like a WUSTL dining hall at 12:30PM on a Sunday.

Save them. Save us.
