BC06: Elmo

As you all know, today's Brunch featured a special visitor from our Boston office!

Requisite Reunion Brunch Group Photo:

Wow, I'm actually glad I was on the other side of the camera. No one really fared well in that beauty shot! You'd think it was the Before Coffee photo, but it's not.... Take it from me, people, everyone looked better in person :)

Anyhoo... today's Brunch Clubbers decided we didn't need Cafeteria's snotty Chelsea attitude (translation: missed the window of opportunity for group seating). Braving nippy winds and bright blue skies (which would have been more enjoyable without a hangover), we made our way up 7th Ave to Elmo, and basked under the benevolent gaze of its bizarre mural characters:

Clocking in at $14, Elmo's brunch was highly satisfactory. I had the Tex Mex, the guy at the next table had French toast that looked amazing, and I have no memory of anyone else's food, except that Annette lent me ketchup. I'm so self-centered. OK here's pictures of happy brunchers.

Watch This Space for a hilarious text message and possible commentary from Erica about a background character in one of these photos.

Official BC06 Update

Brunch Club manana is at Cafeteria (7th Ave @ 17th). I didn't even come up with this suggestion but obviously, I am geographically delighted.

I vow to be there at noon.

Meanwhile, I know my sister already pimped her video on the previous thread, but this photo is too brilliant not to post:

You can check out the Chubby Bon Vivants' Johnny Cash homage here: Line of Fire.

See you @ Cafeteria....

billy's birthday brunch

Apologies for the belated post, my fellow brunch-clubbers, but I thought I would upload an image commemmorating Billy's Birthday Brunch at The Sunburnt Cow that was sadly canceled last week due to inclement weather. As you can see from the conditions on Avenue B that fateful Sunday, it takes quite a snowstorm to interfere with our weekly ritual.

Hark! an absentee member approaches...

Hey there brunch club, I'm in town this weekend and hoping to visit with those who continue on with the fun before I return to Boston.

As once I left NYC I instantly lost all credibility in location selection and before I suggest brunching at the Olive Garden, perhaps someone could start dropping names.

And in practical matters. I have someone's towel up in Boston... Want it back?

Can't wait to see you guys.

Birthday Brunching - Take 2

It's become tradition that at least one birthday event surrounding Billy's birthday get canceled every year due to snow... Let's try to get back on track this weekend and celebrate all February birthdays before the month is over. Maybe we'll even get some out of town guests??? (In fact, I know we will have at least a couple coming with me)

So let's plan big and let's plan for somewhere that's not really far from public transportation - any ideas?

See you soon!

Happy Birthday Christine!

On behalf of BC06, I would like to wish Christine a very happy birthday. Unfortunately, not all of the BC06 members are able to make it up to Boston for the celebrations, but those of us in NYC will raise a glass for you. Have a wonderful day. See you soon!
