    Is it brunch if you don't get out of bed until, like, 2PM on Sunday?

    You need to actually have friends IRL to know about brunch, breh.

    The biggest gay bar in town used to have Sunday brunch. The idea being that you take your Saturday night hook-up there before heading home. Or the after-after-after party. But that was also back when when the biggest (and possibly filthiest) bathhouse on the west coast occupied the upper floors of the building. Not sure if they still do it in their new location.

    A funny piece, not sure how accurate. Each new generation thinks they invented everything, and appropriates old things as their very own.

    I've been "doing" (and hating) brunch for 50 years, more a social obligation than anything I would choose on my own. A hideous concept, that I think actually originated (or at least was popularized) in English country manors in the late 1800s.

    I last did brunch on Sunday, a monthly ritual with friends at a gay restaurant, this time about 25 of us. As I tell my husband, a waste of money for me, I eat very little for breakfast. I only do it to socialize with them, and for that it's worth it. But not for the buffet ordeal. We just sit around and gossip, catch up on the news about friends.

    So I don't think these Gen Y kids have anything on us.

    Brunch is the only time I can get unlimited mimosas at DW Bistro. So yes, I'm slightly obsessed.

    This. Brunch was a big deal to young professionals in New York in the '80s and '90s. Why do I think this? Because then I was in my 20s and 30s, the target demographic because it's the only time busy singles were free to get together during the week because they kept that slot open for some hair of the dog after drinking the night before. Once you or your friends pop out a kid, brunches with mimosas take a backseat until you're ready for assisted living. Unless you're straight with tots - then, presumably, the stroller brigade takes over Dennys Sunday afternoons.

    BTW, one reason Sunday brunch continues with the older crowd is church attendance. Not MY reason, but mid-morning church interferes with a nice leisurely Sunday breakfast beforehand. And people leave church in their "Sunday clothes", so as long as you're dressed might as well do something with them. Especially if you only had a light breakfast before church, or simply coffee, you're probably hungry around noontime, and many of your friends are right there with you. So I think brunch among older people reflects that practical Sunday pattern.

    F%CK this video... i love brunch. And it has nothing to do with having a hang over. Me personally, I like breakfast foods. But most resturants stop serving breakfast around 10:30 am. Hell Im usually just getting out of bed around 9:30 (when I dont have to go work or school).

    I love brunch. I don't eat first thing in the morning but I love breakfast foods...especially grits. And mimosas or bellinis are great too.
