Kris Kristofferson, he who wrote “Me and Bobby McGee,” also composed what we think might be the all-time best country song, “Sunday Morning Coming Down.” The first verse goes something (actually, it goes exactly) like this: “Well, I woke up Sunday morning / With no way to hold my head that didn’t hurt / And the beer I had for breakfast wasn’t bad / So I had one more for dessert.”
Thanks, Kris. Now we’ll go for mimosas and maybe something really spicy, tagging along with that Millennial vixen, Ashlee Simpson. Ash tells us brunch is the thing to do at http://thoughtcatalog.com/ashlee-simpson/2013/11/10-reasons-why-brunch-has-become-the-default-20-something-activity/
If you didn’t know, Sunday Brunch is often “endless mimosas and a meal for usually less than $30 bucks. It is also a setting that recaps “the weekend with your friends. What better way to relive Friday and Saturday’s fun than over a great meal… and you guessed it, More Drinks!” EdgyPlate: Yikes, girl.
What if it’s say, your birthday, and you “feel too old or tired to go out to a club or bar… so you host a “Grown & Sexy” brunch to show how ‘mature’ you are.” EdgyPlate: You are setting the bar pretty high, Ashlee. Pretty darn high.
If you are still “to drunk too cook (EdgyPlate: Hehe. Or do, like, grammar and stuff…) and need more drinks to kill the throbbing headache you’re currently suffering from.”
What if “funds are tight?” Ash has it handled. “Brunch at the right time can serve as your one Sunday meal. (You can bum food off your coworkers on Monday.)” EdgyPlate: Riiiigghht.
OMG! “You have the perfect dress… Only it’s not perfect for work or for a night on the town. Brunch means getting cute cause we all know someone is posting a pic to the gram.” EdgyPlate: The gram?
Now she asks, “Who needs a reason to drink? Not a 20-something. Brunch explains your reason for drinking at noon.” EdgyPlate: If you don’t need a reason, why would brunch be explaining… oh, never mind.
“Eating breakfast once the day is halfway over doesn’t feel like a crime to you.” EdgyPlate: Huh?
“Pool party, cool rooftop, poetry fest can all be done over a plate of pancakes at the right brunch.” EdgyPlate: Yes, but it has to be the right one, right?
And Ash jumps off with this pearl: “Brunch becomes ‘Sunday Funday’ instead of the dreadful day before Monday.” EdgyPlate: Yeah, that 9-to-5 stuff is a bitch, isn’t it?
OK, on to our well-researched “best of” list, because in all truth brunch is a great thing, and there some very wonderful places to enjoy it. Here are some via http://www.opentable.com/m/best-brunch-restaurants-in-america/
