THREE DAY WEEKEND WOOHOO! Memorial Day Weekend is easily the best weekend in May: BBQ, (sometimes) cooperative sunny weather, and if you’re really lucky, some time at the pool or beach. You know what also goes along with warm weather and an extra day off? Brunch. All of the brunch. Boozy, bottomless, food coma-inducing brunch. Added bonus, an extra day off from work means you get another opportunity to do some brunchin’.

DC Harvest

DC Harvest has their usual weekend brunch with specials available Monday as an added bonus! Brunch goes from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with bottomless Bloody Mary’s and mimosas for $15 – $20. The menu is devoted to making comfort food with a new kind of twist, and they have two different kinds of pancakes so what’s not to love? be sure to check out their other staples such as the DC cheery wood smoked baco and the asiago doughnuts.

Provision 14

If you’re looking for a place to go to near Northwest D.C., Provision 14 could be your place. They’re serving brunch on Monday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (talk about a marathon — four and half hour brunch, anyone?) and bottomless can be ordered any time before 2:30. Bottomless includes the classic mimosa or their signature basil lavender mimosa.
