The past two weekends have been spent at brunch all day on Fridays. Hotels here have this deal where you pay a certain price for all you can eat and all you can drink of their selections. Each hotel has certain pros and cons to their individual brunches. Last weekend's brunch had a better alcohol selection, but limited food selection. Yesterday's brunch has wonderful food selection, but ran out of the boxed wine we were forced to suffer. They happened to run out of the wine precisely five minutes after the organizer of our brunch outing had handed them our collected money. Coincidence? Probably not.

I'm invited to a brunch again next weekend, but I cannot bring myself to do it again. They are absolutely exhausting. You never eat a lot of food, but you drink for four hours. And then everyone goes to the bars afterwards. And suddenly it's 10pm and you're still drinking and you haven't eaten a thing in six hours, but boy have you drank! And you have four new best friends and you must be hilarious because there is a picture of you making someone cry from laughter. It's the most terrible and wonderful way to spend a Friday.


  1. I love brunches! They are a way of life here in DC. The best ones that have bottomless mimosa specials until 3pm :D

  2. That does sound exhausting, but it sounds like something that I'll have to try at least once.

    But perhaps the place will "run out of wine" right after the party pays again. And then you will win by not going.

  3. In life everything comes down to drinking, but at least the hotels there have pros and cons to brunches, while hotels here mainly have cons when it comes to food.

    1. Considering they're all all-you-can-drink, yes, they're fair, haha. I mean, we could probably recreate it at someone's apartment for slightly less money, but part of the price is the ease of just sitting there and having everything at your fingertips. It's worth it.

  5. See, now all-you-can-drink sounds pretty nice! As long as said brunch includes some good drunk people food too, haha.

    Also, just wanted to say thanks for your comment on my blog. I wrote you a lengthy response if you're interested in keeping up the conversation. For the record, I'm not trying to be argumentative. (It may come off that way-- I'm just passionate about the subject!) Just pointing out circumstances that undeniably go against the excuse of "I'm too young to write a novel," because I believe you're never too young. I'd like to hear what you think. :)
