Is it time to admit that brunch is yuppie bullshit? | The Tylt
Brunch is a national past time at this point, with young people in cities everywhere making pilgrimages to their favorite spot at 11 o'clock on the dot to eat overpriced eggs and booze. For every person in love with brunch, there’s another who hates it with every fiber of their being—paying $18 for huevos rancheros is profane. But not everyone has malice in their heart. Plenty people love brunch, because who doesn't want to eat good food and have a good time? What do you think? 🍳
Is it time to admit that brunch is yuppie bullshit?
Let's be real—brunch is really just socially acceptable day drinking. And we're totally cool with that, but what's bullshit is paying $15 for a single mimosa that you know is marginally better than Cook's and Sunny D. Just drink the Cook's and Sunny D.
Brunch is so much more than just drinking! The beautiful thing about brunch is no matter what kind of week you had, brunch is there for you. It's the perfect way to cap off a week, or to start the week! Or both! What's better than good food, good drinks and friends? Nothing.
Moving past the overpriced booze, when it comes down to it, you're paying a ton of money for something dumb like avocado toast. Admit it, you know avocado toast is bullshit. Who pays $10 for barely any avocado smeared on a piece of artisanal bread with some sea salt sprinkled on top of it? Yuppies, that's who. Don't be a yuppie.
Anyone who's had avocado toast knows just how magical it is. Besides, brunch isn't about value. It isn't about thriftiness, it's about kicking back and enjoying your weekend. Because you've earned it. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.
The worst thing about brunch isn't brunch itself, but the glorification and gloating afterwards. It's just food. Get over it. No one wants to look at your overpriced breakfast (fine, some people do but still, just stop).
At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. You do you and keep eating those boozy brunches. Mimosas anyone?
