    Sunday Funday.

    My brunch is really just going to some greasy spoon diner for eggs, sausage, bacon, home fries, toast, and pancakes around 10:30 AM on a Saturday or Sunday.

    I've successfully avoided "actual brunching" for this YTD.

    I read the title of this thread as "I hate brunch and I hate white people", and I think that would've been a better title

    Nothing good has ever come out of Brunch. I am officially on Team Anti-Brunch now.

    Every brunch experience I've had in a restaurant was terrible, both atmosphere and food (and loud lounge type music, wtf?!). And drinking doesn't make it better, because it just makes it harder for me to bite my tongue about how shitty the whole experience is. Luckily, these have been few and far between with a 5 year old, almost exclusively mother's day.

    How does simply calling it "brunch" somehow change the whole dynamic? We'll head to our favorite local place at 11:30 (open) on a Saturday for one of our five hour lunches and it feels totally different from a "brunch."

    I like brunch. I usually go to brunch on the same days that Matt takes his pug to acupuncture.

    This must be a mutated left coast strain of the species. This is what we have over here:

    Yeah, but Asians are just extra-white white people. That's why we're all named Howard and Gary.

    Is there a bastardized menu combining remnants of dinner service with eggs, or nut crusted and fried proteins served with with sweet crepes or waffles?

    Places that serve brunch have special brunch menus, which consist of leftover shit at high prices they are trying to offload to alcoholic women who want to drink at 11 AM.

    Nothing like that in sight; just their usual lunch menu. The chef usually sends out a steak tartare (off the menu) for us when we go in.

    I wonder if it really is that simple?

    on the flip side, I did have brunch at Boulud Sud not long after it opened, and I thought the food and experience was exceedingly excellent. Not breakfasty or syrupy food by any stretch. I banned mimosas at our table, too, so it was two bottles from the wine list.

    Also did brunch at Cafe Boulud just over a year ago. Def. more of a brunchy menu, and the heathens at my table (wife and her sister) did order mimosas to the tune of $19 each.

    I have not done any brunch since.

    Thanks for the heads up. I can still make it to Venice in time for the organic bloody mary and heirloom breakfast burrito special at Rose Cafe!
