ken barber Posted August 1, 2016 Report Share Posted August 1, 2016 (edited) And by Gay I don't mean the school yard insult or some folks attempt to use it as a slur.I mean why do so many gay men do Sunday BrunchI recently thought of this during one of my Many Brunches with my Fiance and a group of our friends. The Restaurant we decided to try this week was a cute hip little place and the crowd had to be at least 75% gay men. Then I started to take notice.1. Brunch is stylish. Breakfast is mundane and you know us gay men we don't do mundane. Brunch has a casual sophistication to it.2. Its the meal we get to show off the new clothes we bought at our favorite shopping spot the week before. Dinner is dim and dark, our attire reflects that. You wear what ever is available and stay casual with lunch. Breakfast is hopefully with your sweetie and as little clothes as possible. So we pull out all the stops for Brunch we squeeze into those jeans, drag the compression tank over our head and strut our stuff.3. Brunch is social. Dinner you go out with another couple or a small group of friends. Brunch always starts with at least 10 and slowly gathers steam until we have 20-25 friends all together. And if the Restaurant wants us to wait at the bar for our larger table to get ready, we have no problem with that at all.4. Brunch and cocktails are one in the same. Everyone would judge you if you had a drink with breakfast but with brunch at 11 am its not only ok its expected.5. Not many families at brunch. Sure you can bring your kids to Brunch but 11 am is way beyond breakfast time and almost at lunch time for the little demons. So we can get lewd, loud and obnoxious if we want and the establishments that serve brunch seem to encourage this type of fun.6. At brunch no one judges what you eat. During the week a heavy carb meal would get me a healthy eating sermon from my gym rat buddies but at brunch they are right there ordering the french toast, grilled with almonds and served with a giant scoop of butter and mango-strawberry gastrique. with a side of home fries and bacon thrown in.So it fits every checklist gay men have created over the years, Stylish, Fashionable, Social, Cocktails, no kids, and good food.
