There is going to be a convention that revolves exclusively around a single meal: Brunch. Do you love brunch? How much do you love brunch? Do you love it so much that you would go to BrunchCon? If so, good for you, friend, because it's a real thing that's happening in Los Angeles on Sunday, August 14 at Magic Box inside The Reef—the new name for the historic LA Mart building in downtown Los Angeles.

This day-long fest will allow participants to sample a number of brunch food items, as well as sip on mimosas and Bloody Marys. There will also be brunch activities, including a speed dating game so that you'll never have to brunch alone again, as well as cooking and cocktail demos, brunch merchandise, yard games, and something called a "hangover lounge."

While applications for vendors are still rolling in, BrunchCon has confirmed the following local bruncheries: Americano, Poppy and Rose, Bang Bang Brunch, Escala, Middle Bar, Square One, Sonny's Hideaway, Chomp Eatery and The Parlor. Each one will be in charge of deciding what food, drinks or both they'd like to offer. You can keep an eye out for new additions to the list here.

No word yet on whether there will be any breakfast cosplay, but if you're interested in tickets, they go on sale May 1. Sign up to receive more details on pricing as they're made available here.
