Today is Sunday, and all over the world people are waking up and going to a scared event: brunch. But I’ve been finding that a lot of people are mistaken about aspects of this divine ritual, so let me help clear some things up.
7:30-9:30 = Breakfast
11:30-1:30 = Lunch
Any meal that you eat between 9:30 and 11:30 is a mixture of breakfast and lunch; brunch.
If you eat bacon and eggs at 11:45, you are having breakfast foods for lunch, you’re not having brunch. If you have a hamburger at 9:15, you’re having a lunch food for breakfast, you’re not having brunch. If you have a mimosa at 8:45, good on ya, but let’s be clear that you’re drinking for breakfast, not for brunch. If you sluggishly get out of bed around 11:15 and text your friends to meet you for brunch at 12:30, you’re wrong; you’re actually meeting for lunch.
It should be noted that voting line laws apply here. If you are seated and have ordered brunch at 11:24, you’re still having brunch. However, order your eggs at 9:23, and you’re still eating at 10:30, wrap it up folks, there are other people waiting on tables.
I hope this has cleared up some timing and semantics for everyone. Now if you’ll excuse me, I only have an hour and a half left to get my brunch on. (Folk Art in Inman Park, y’all. For Real.)
