Looking for a way to bring in February? I have something fun you can do this weekend! Everyone loves a good brunch, right? What if I told you there was a festival dedicated to our favorite meal?
On February 3, 2018, Brunch Fest will take place at 11 am-3 pm at Union Market, Dock 5.
“Brunch without booze is just a sad late breakfast”. An event with a tagline like that promises to deliver. Brunch Fest is an “All-you-care-to-taste” extravaganza, with more than 15 participating restaurants including Poppy’s, Sugar Shack, Puddin and On Toast. With all day sausage and bacon griddles, you’ll have plenty to eat with all the drinks you have to try. There’s a boozy coffee bar, a Fresh coffee bar, the Almost Famous Bloody Mary Bar and the Pink Playhouse which will feature Rosé’s from around the world and a great selection of 30+ beer spirits and wine.
Your ticket ($89) is all-inclusive and includes a souvenir glass you can take home.
If you want to make a day of it there is a Rosé After Hours from 4:30 pm-7 pm where you can taste a wide range of wines, over 50 Rosé’s, champagnes, sparklings, and Sauternes. If you’re still hungry, enjoy the international cheese bar, the build your own taco station, the Mediterranean bar, build your own crostini bar or Italian favorites buffet. It is requested that you wear pink, you’ll get a keepsake wine glass and a dessert from Panorama bakery. The event will have a photo station and a live DJ! This ticket is separate and is also all inclusive ($59).
If you can’t make it to Washington DC on February 3rd, 2018 you have two more chances to make it to Brunch Fest, September 15, 2018, in Baltimore Maryland, or October 6, 2018, in Cary, North Carolina.
Washington DC is very big on brunch so after Brunch Fest, why not wake up and repeat at a local favorite? I have a great suggestion for finding a hotel, RoomShare. RoomShare is a new platform that allows people to share hotel rooms. If you create a profile, you can be matched with a roommate based on gender and other preferences. You will both get your own beds and split the cost of the room.
Want to be alone? RoomShare understands. You can also get hotel rooms that are solo’s through the site. When other travelers cancel their plans, RoomShare gets those bookings that are unused and sells them to you after heavily discounting them. If you find yourself needing to cancel your plans at the last minute, you can sell your room back on RoomShare and get back a portion of your booking fee. Happy Brunching!
