Brunch: An Origination Story


We ran 3.7 miles and talked of fruit trees, knee pain and other nonsense.

Why should you come to Brunch: Wiki says the term Brunch was coined in Britain in 1895 to describe a Sunday meal for “Saturday-night carousers”:

“…brunch would make life brighter for Saturday-night carousers. It would promote human happiness in other ways as well.

“Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting”, Beringer wrote. “It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.”
