You know, I was thinking to myself not so long ago about how truly bored I am lately* and decided I really needed** a new project.
*Not really bored, just crazy/** Not needed at all. Again, just crazy.
So there I was. With a twitchy thumb, a jumpy tummy, an interest in learning Wordpress (BTW, kicking myself for that now) and a desire to utilize Dreamhost for web hosting, which had been highly recommended to me by many other bloggers.
The thing is, I love brunch. It is my favorite meal. As a very wise man once said (okay, it’s from “The Simpsons,” but still): “It’s not quite breakfast, it’s not quite lunch, but it comes with a slice of cantaloupe at the end.” I mean, who’s on board for a post-meal slice of melon, y’all?
Here in Los Angeles – and even in its near-neighboring cities – brunch is not just a meal, it’s a culture. It is where deals are brokered, new friendships are formed, and $15 can score you a bottomless Mimosa or Bloody Mary. It is valet parking for seven dollars because you’re too hung over from the night before to bother looking for street parking. And when you do find street parking, it’s as if God himself parted the clouds to bring the space to you. Brunch is a side of bacon and more bacon. It is “white, wheat, whole grain, sourdough, rye, an English muffin or bagel.” It is gluten free, egg-white, skim milk, paleo-friendly and any other diet trending at the time. It is big sunglasses, sun dresses in November, people watching and rosemary garlic potatoes.
So I decided to create the Hollywood Brunch Blog. The go-to online destination for all things brunch in this crazy town. People arealways asking me for brunch recommendations and it blew my mind that a site solely dedicated to brunch culture did not exist. Furthermore, it's something I can involve friends and fellow bloggers in. I'm not discriminating -- if you want to review something for Hollywood Brunch, I would welcome it.
And there you have it. My newest baby. Now that I've told you about it, I guess I really have to get to it, don't I? The people demand their brunch!!! And so I will bring it to them. Please bookmark that site and keep an eye out, won't you?
Disclosuring stuffs: Dreamhost totally threw me a bone for posting this but I was launching the site anyway and had already spent some money on it, so basically I was like "yes, please."
