It’s no secret that Millennials have a special relationship with brunch and mimosas. I mean, come on — who doesn’t love eating some pancakes and getting tipsy on Sunday mornings? It’s even better when the mimosas are bottomless. The joy of seeing your waitress or waiter come back to your table with a full pitcher of freshly squeezed alcoholic orange juice is honestly unbeatable, and the beauty of your Nutella stuffed french toast is truly unfathomable.
If you don’t already brunch with your best friends, it’s time you start! Although older generations think that Millennials have ruined it, that doesn’t stop us from enjoying it while the trend lasts. Here are 3 reasons why brunch is the right move on a Sunday morning:
1. It is the perfect Sunday rejuvenation.
Whether you consider Sunday to be the beginning or the end, it’s the perfect start/finish to your week. Waking up semi-late and heading out to eat some delicious food and down a few mimosas can both revive you and kill the pain from the previous night’s decisions. Once you finish brunch, you can spend the rest of your Sunday doing whatever you want knowing that your day has been made by indulging in a great meal.
2. Brunch is a great time to spend with family and friends.
No matter what type of brunch you choose, it’s a great time to catch up with your friends and family. Working during the week often doesn’t let you spend quality time with the people you love. Most of that time is reserved for the weekend — and what better way to make use of that time by eating breakfast food?
3. Dare I say it? Brunch is fun!
Us brunch lovers may be jerks, but let us have our fun. We find the meal genuinely enjoyable. Whether you’re getting drunk while eating pancakes or enjoying a calm late-morning meal, eating brunch is a fun time that I always look forward to. We share gossip, stories from the work week, and laugh. If you don’t enjoy that, then go do other things that you think are fun — it’s not that hard. You don’t even have to drink to have fun at brunch.
At the end of the day, you either like brunch or you don’t. It’s that simple. While I love brunch, I usually don’t go every weekend. Sometimes it can be a little too expensive, as just a meal in some cities can cost $15 or more. For those extra rough weeks, however, I recommend gathering your friends and family to spend a late Sunday morning enjoying each other. Eventually, brunch will be less “trendy,” so enjoy the deals and fun while you can. It’s certainly not going anywhere, as it’s been around for a long time, so take advantage now!
