Oakland Bites: Brunch Suggestions?
on April 14, 2009
Over the weekend, I headed home to celebrate Easter with the fam over the mother of all brunches. While this one was crazy and chaotic–63 people, one life-sized rabbit–it got me thinking that for all the time I’ve spent in the East Bay, I think I’ve only been to brunch twice, and I haven’t yet found a regular spot. I’m a big fan of the neighborhood-y Fat Apples in North Berkeley and the hippy dippy All You Knead on Haight Street in San Fran, but I need some North Oakland suggestions. Feel free to post ’em below.
Just Curious: After polling some of my cousins at Easter Brunch, it turns out that a lot of the kids I know aren’t getting candy from the Easter Bunny anymore. It appears that the Bunny is handing out small toys like Legos or toy cars, or even head bands and nail polish instead. What’s going on at your house? Is the shift to be healthier changing the way you celebrate holidays, whichever they may be?
