Why Brunch Is The Best Thing That Can Happen To You On The Weekend

Brunch may be a slightly irresponsible way to cope with the day after an intense night out, but it’s also delicious and awesome. How could something that combines dressing up, day drinking, coffee, and bacon be bad? Your liver and wallet might hate you for another day of abuse, but it’s ultimately worth it. The day after a long night of partying, brunch is the best thing that could happen to you.

  1. You get a second chance at going out pics. There’s not much worse than realizing you forgot to take pictures the night before, when your outfit and make up looked bomb AF, or scrolling through your camera roll only to see you look gross and wasted in every pic. Fix yourself up and try again, because brunch is the perfect place for selfies!
  2. You get company for your hangover. Misery loves company, especially when that misery is a horrifying hangover. When brunch is an option, you never have to suffer alone.
  3. The party never ends. Who wants to stop having fun just because the sun is up? There is plenty of time to sleep when you’re dead.
  4. It’s always a reason to celebrate. Did somebody say bottomless mimosas? Champagne is reserved for the super special celebrations like weddings, New Year’s Eve, and brunch.
  5. You feel productive. If you don’t want to feel like a complete waste of life all day, get your act together and head to brunch. You’ll totally feel productive for, like, three hours.
  6. You can eat as many calories as you want, guilt-free. Everyone’s binging at brunch. The calories from your bacon-topped waffle tower and three Bloody Marys are guilt-free, because they’re crucial in your hangover recovery. It’s like medicine.
  7. You get filled in on last night’s gossip. Brunch is the perfect time to find out who got lucky and who threw up on themselves and was asked to leave by security. Your attendance is also crucial so you can tell your side of the story about why you threw up on yourself and were asked to leave by security…
  8. No one cares if you’re in walk of shame clothes. Rock that stuff, girl! No one cares if you’re still in your cocktail dress from last night. In fact, some places it’s encouraged. Everyone’s glad you had a good time and are continuing to do so.
  9. You can bail on everything else you were supposed to do. Too hungover to follow through with your commitments for the day? Text everyone that you “just remembered” about these brunch plans you made a long time ago and get away with cancelling last minute.
  10. It will drag you away from Netflix. We all know you’re in love with Netflix, especially when you’re hungover, but engaging with the real world will do you some good. When not much else can pull you off the couch, count on brunch to motivate you to brush your teeth, wipe off your make up from last night, and get your day started.
