All right, friends in Arizona. It’s time you learned about what NYC really has to offer. Sure, there are Broadway shows, and great nightlife, and the Statue of Liberty, but that’s not what I want to talk about. Let’s talk about brunch.
And yes, I know you can do brunch in any city, but it’s a whole different breed out here. First of all, it’s a cultural phenomenon. I spent three months living here last summer, and I don’t think I took more than a week off from brunch. Everyone does brunch. People LOVE brunch. I love brunch.
Second of all, it makes day drinking not only okay, but encouraged. You can walk into a place with all you can drink specials, and it’s not crazy drunkards–it’s sophisticated professionals.
I mean, what else can I say? Brunch literally takes the best part of every other meal and puts it in one. Love breakfast, but don’t want to wake up that early? No problem! Like cocktails with your muffins, but don’t want to self-identify as an alcoholic? There’s an app for that! Let’s put it this way: in about eight days, I will live in New York permanently. Mark my words, that will be the start of what will undoubtedly be my longest and most passionate relationship to date. That begins the start of my love affair with brunch.
This guy knows what I’m talking about.
