Give yourself all the nutrients you’ll need to push and shove and grab your way to the hottest deals Black Friday has to offer by grabbing some brunch. Who knows, mimosas might help your fight instincts rather than slow you down as you might expect. You don’t know until you try. If you’re not down for the shopping, then I’d suggest posting up at a window seat and watching the crazy shoppers dash up and down the street. Either way, here are five Black Friday brunches, do with them what you wish.
Stopping for a snack break on Black Friday is a hard no, so El Camino has you covered. Options like huevos divorciados and horchata french toast will warm your soul, fill your stomach and maybe destroy your turkey day hangover. If not, opt for hair of the dog with bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marias.
If Thanksgiving day only tickled your appetite for hearty American food, then DC Harvest is your spot for Black Friday brunch. They of course have bottomless bloody marys and mimosas, but they’ve also got oysters, cheese grits and hickory smoked quail. Like I said, really hearty stuff. If you didn’t make it to your food coma goals, it’s not too late, you can get there, I promise.
Celebrate the ultra-American dining trend of farm to table at Founding Farmers for Black Friday Brunch. Stuffed french toast, poached egg hashes, and customizable bacon options will keep you weekend of indulgence on a roll. It’s also conveniently located downtown, a decent walk from shops so you can walk off a bit of your meal to prevent cramps once you start exerting yourself over deals.
From 10 to 2 on Black Friday stop by DC Grill Kitchen and Bar for some classic morning fare. They’ve got breakfast burritos, omelettes, breakfast quesadillas, and french toast. It’s like a better version of what you would make, but bothered to cook or clean anymore.
If you’re opting out of the shopping madness, Nellie’s still has you covered for entertainment. On Black Friday they’re hosting a Drag Brunch with Shi-Queeta Lee and other queens, for a promised good time. And what’s a show without food? The brunch ticket price includes an all you can eat buffet, so you can eat through your hangover and your first drink, a good way to test the waters for greater consumption. Food and a show, what more could you want?
