It's been a busy, busy Summer. I took a vacation to Portland! I've been away for work three or four times! I've seen movies and friends. I've eaten meals and colored. I just got back from BlogHer and am speaking at ConnectHer in two weeks -- all of the "hers," eh?
Here is where I am not going, though -- I am not going to BrunchCon. I was disappointed that they did not seem to be working with bloggers - a mistake in my opinion. I have a lot of pride and cannot get over that I was not approached to support (I offered, I was ignored). And I was turned off by a lackluster list of vendors and the price of admission, which is not an unlimited admission -- it only entitles you to a limited quantity of tickets to trade for bites and sips.
I do have a whole bevvy of new brunch places to recommend, though, if anyone is looking.
They have three locations. I like the one on West 3rd which opens up to the street and is quite lovely on a nice day. Visit their website for more.
My picks: The guacamole and queso and the chilaquiles. Particularly the pork in the chilaquiles. WOW.
A charming, new spot downtown! Visit their website for more.
My picks: The Brandy Milk Punch (right), the Burrata toast... and the very attractive manager. ;)
They have two locations. Visit their website for more info.
My picks: The short rib hash or the strawberry mascarpone pancakes.
Well, now I am sufficiently hungry. Damn.
I have a back-log of brunch photos and blog posts and ideas that I swear will not continue to go ignored. This site is definitely due for another rebrand, right? Please be sure to follow me on ajfeuerman.com as well -- I am blogging there as well, of course. And don't forget you can sign up for my exclusive, monthly brunch e-newsletter there.
