Brunch: By Definition
Deep Thought 9000, er, Wikipedia, defines brunch thusly:
"Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch. The term is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch. Often, it is a heavy meal meant to take the place of both breakfast and lunch."
So much for AI!
Still, check out that lovely vocabulary word portmanteau. Shouldn't it always be italicized, just 'cause? As our Moms would say, look it up!
Still does not compute? You can enjoy the bounty of brunch, the delirious pleasure of consuming bacon and champagne at once, all over this fair city. And many of its citizens find the Skylark's brunch really hits the spot. Our bloody mary--a secret recipe muddled with lemons and limes, and garnished with happy little artichokes and green beans--has garnered rave reviews. You can turn it into an "Empress" by adding Absolut Peppar vodka, or a "Maria" by trading vodka for tequila. Either way, she will dance your hangover into submission with her fetching good looks and stealthy seduction!
Brunch early birds enjoy 10% off EVERYTHING and $20 mimosas carafes before 11 a.m.
So what about our food, the food you eat between or instead of or in addition to breakfast and lunch? Survey Says: SUPERB!
Riki and Tony cook up two great specials each day. One sweet, one savory. Savory options have included a mindblowing variety of Benedicts and everything-but-the-kitchen-sink scrambles! Sweets have included flapjack options such as strawberry/blueberry, and the unbelievably orgasmic candied walnut/banana and pineapple/macadamia nut combos! Also, Riki's been known to douse the french toast in Kahlua or Bailey's. And who doesn't love french toast anyway?
SKYLARK BRUNCH: 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday. Sunday. Hooray. Bonus points for counting the number of times "breakfast" and "lunch" appear in this post.
