I like the brunch life baby

Last week I asked readers what they’d like to see around here and Rachel suggested some coverage of the Astoria nightlife scene. I am sorry to report, I have no idea about Astoria nightlife, I’m sure there are people out and about during those witching hours however, I hate  to leave my house after dark, and pretty much turn into a pumpkin around 11pm.

What I CAN talk about extensively is the brunchlife. My Saturday night may be spent on the couch working and watching Law and Order SVU but come noon on Sunday I am first at the door for unlimited mimosas! I’m the kind of person who goes out to dinner and asks the waiter if I can preview their brunch menu for future reference. Dinner is great, but brunch is AWESOME! I love everything about it: daytime, eggs, champagne, blood mary’s, coffee. Even if don’t go the unlimited drinks route brunch foods are by far my favorite foods. I could eat breakfast for every meal at any time of day. Plus, you know, bacon.

Yesterday I went to my fave homestyle mexican restaurant in Astoria, Pachanga Patterson, for brunch delectables for the first time. For $12  the ‘El Completo’ includes one menu item + one drink, perfect for the pre-flea or shopping Sunday, OR add $8 for unlimited mimosas, bloody’s, or draft beers. Perfect for a big ‘ole group of friends getting together to celebrate… anything. So basically grab a twenty and a fiver for tip and go have yourself a great time.

It wasn’t too crowded when we went, the bartender thought it might be slower because afternoon NFL games have started. No prob here, we parked our party of 8 in the back patio and got comfortable. The service was great. Relaxed and friendly without being too friendly or relaxed. Drinks were kept full and the food was outstanding (I highly recommend the Veggie Jenga and the Carnitas Tacos).

I would have taken more pictures of the food/drinks/space but you see I was busy eating and drinking. If you live in Astoria go immediately, make a reservation for this Sunday in fact. If you don’t live here well, if you ever visit call me maybe? and I’ll be right there. What’s your favorite brunch cuisine where you live?
