All You Can Drink Brunch

It's difficult to find something more genuinely joy-inducing than an all you can drink brunch deal. I used to think that drinking during the day was irresponsible, exhausting, and just not worth it, however, my perception has shifted. I've come to realize that there is virtually no pressure involved in daytime drinking. Weekend nights yield high expectations (finding someone attractive to talk to, just for one), but daytime brunch deals have no such expectations (unless I'm issuing them which case, I apologize).

Think about it this wake up on a Sunday morning needing something greasy and delicious, you call a friend, they're desperately in need of curing their hangover. You decide to hit up a local brunch spot. In Manhattan, this can end early, with a $50 bill and only a mimosa or two down the hatch. BUT, there are a few places that have the answer for you. Your brunch comes with an all-you-can-drink won't be able to stop. It's a beautiful thing to make friends with the people sitting next to you at 12:30 on a Sunday because you've all had 6 mimosas  and your bill won't be higher than $23/person...with tip. Everyone is happy. Everyone is drunk. Everyone is well-fed. It is truly a beautiful thing.

(Try, but make reservations: "The Sunburnt Cow", Ave C @ 9th St, $18/all you can drink+food, "Bondi Road", Rivington St. @ Suffolk, $18/all you can drink + food,  "Essex", Essex @ Rivington, 3 drinks+ food/$16)

If you don't live in NYC...visit...or just move already. Plus, I'm sure there's more of these deals around that I just don't know about yet.
