    I often eat a late breakfast out on Sunday morning. Does it count as brunch if the restaurant does not label it as such and just has extended breakfast hours?

    No, it doesn't count. Brunch is a specific meal that only assholes go to. It's labeled "Brunch" and it's filled not with regular breakfast items but with leftover foods they couldn't sell Saturday night. It's over priced crap marketed toward lazy women and feminine men.

    Really? I'm not refuting that I'm a feminine man, but in my neck of the woods, "brunch" essentially means a late breakfast.

    I've been waking up between 11 and noon every day since I'm on sabbatical. I guess that makes me a daily bruncher.

    Restaurants should serve recess. You get what you get for lunch except you only get 10-15 minutes to finish it all no exceptions

    Your schtick is kind of lame, bro.



    You should move to San Francisco, become a hipster, wear leather and aspire to, someday, be one of those old gray haired couples who brunch together in matching black smocks and talk about your former comrades.

    God, that would be the life.

    Hey, do any of those brunch joints serve lievre a la royale (maybe over some English muffins)? I bet Chris Cosentino does--I hear he's the best chef in San Fo the world.

    Would it mark me as a participant in the war on women if I were to mention that Chris Cosentino is a huge twat?

    Nah, you'd get a pass because it seems patently true.

    If you'd said that he has a huge twat, on the other hand....

    Must be accompanied by bottomless Bellinis/Mimosas/Bloody Marys and three hours of gossip. I tried it once. I don't need to go back for awhile.

    His restaurant is terrible and his salami shop is staffed by a bunch of preening, over the hill hipsters dressed like they work in an auto garage taking twenty minutes to slice ham while flogging what they call cones of meat, which are basically those cone shaped dixie cups filled with leftover lunch meat. It is decorated with pictures of him dressed as motorcycle chef. It needs to be destroyed. With fire.

    Not sure if any brunch is involved, but it appeals to the brunch crowd.

    I also hate the word salumi. And the people who say it.

    I was neutral on brunch and have seldom partaken of brunch but in only 28 posts, I hate brunch, brunchers and all things brunch.

    What about Brunch parties? You know those bars that have reservation only "brunches" but involve djs, (cheap) champagne and cougars dancing on tables?
