#ATODBrunchHopLA – No. 1

brunch | brən(t)SH/ | noun
noun: brunch; plural noun: brunches
a late morning meal eaten instead of breakfast and lunch.


Brunch is the most forgotten meal, but in my world, it’s brunch that really sets the pace for a weekend. No excuses. I want to be blown away. Flavor, service, cocktails, menu.

Weekends are meant for mornings that begin with Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, and absolutely NO judgement.

– Dawn Garcia



As I’ve come to dine far more frequently in my life, it’s the weekend brunch I most look forward to. Something about rolling out of bed without any rush to have to go somewhere or do something, knowing that I have a choice. I don’t HAVE to have breakfast ready by 7:15am. I can actually sit in waiting as the house falls quiet – not get agitated when I suddenly hear the sound of the Wii in my daughter’s room go on (because come Saturday we have no “rule” about TV in the morning), I can take in a deep breath because today?

Today, I get to call my friends and get a “Mom/Editor Day OFF”! And on those rare, wonderful days, nothing feeds my need for a little liberation like a phenomenal #WeekendBrunch. Mention a good glass of bubbles or a beckoning well-made Bloody Mary and all is right with the world.


So, Los Angeles, join me. The #ATODBrunchHop is on!!! Your choices this weekend? Go explore DTLA (Historic Downtown) – or travel through the whole of the West Side.
