IT’S NOT QUITE BREAKFAST AND NOT QUITE LUNCH…
I’ve decided that I like having brunch on Sundays. If you know me, that might be surprising since you’re probably thinking I like to spend most of my Sunday mornings asleep.
Hell, that’s how I like to spend all my mornings, let alone Sunday mornings. Suffice to say, it’s a struggle for me to wake up that early to get off campus for a morning meal. Before this school year, I don’t think I’ve ever had brunch before.
The first time was in December, and we were off-campus by 10:30am or so. The whole time I was thinking about how many people back at SJC were asleep. After a long wait, we wound up at Sophie’s Cosmic Cafe. Brunch was alright, and I think I made some comment about the eggs being better at Denny’s. Afterwards, I felt like someone had just kicked my ass and I took a nearly three hour nap. I woke up just before dinner.
The second time I went to brunch was a few weeks ago. The weather was much better and it was easier to get up. We all went to Cafe Zen near Kits Beach. I had a wicked scrambled eggs dish. I thought their menu was much better than Sophie’s.
Today, I went out to brunch again but this time at this Italian cafe across from Zen. It was another great little place. The food, company, and conversation were top notch. I found out everyone’s middle names and what they would name their kids. I said that if I had a girl, I’d name her Oceania and that if it was a boy, it’d be Rudiger. We also talked about if we got married, would we want the bride to keep her own name. For the record, I’d like my wife to choose herself what she wants to do. Though, I’d lean towards her keeping her name.
So yeah, brunch was good today. It seems to get better each time. Afterwards, I only took a 20 minute nap too!
Does anyone else go for brunch on the weekends? If so, where do you go?
