A Venice Beach Boardwalk t-shirt once defined brunch as "the socially acceptable excuse to drink before noon" and that was all the motivation we needed to develop a moment for this major American pass time: Brunch! No matter if your brunch crew is into bottomless bloody marys or green smoothies, brunch is a wonderful time to catch up, gossip, and plan fun things to do in the future. It's also a great opportunity for brands to become part of the conversation.
