L.A. Marathon Ruins Our Brunch Plans
Ah, Sunday brunch. After a week’s worth of work and a weekend’s worth of going out, eggs, pancakes, mimosas and coffee are the answer to all of our problems. That is until the L.A. Marathon comes around and ruins everything. Angelenos took to Twitter to vent their frustrations that the marathon seriously encroached upon brunch time. (Or maybe they just made us feel badly about destroying a chilaquiles burrito in literally two minutes.)
You know what sucks about the LA Marathon? It really fucks with your plans for brunch.— Nick Morton (@Mortonopoulis) March 7, 2014
OMG. The LA Marathon is going to make it such a hassle to get to my mimosa brunch in Beverly Hills.— Deryck Ryan 🏳️🌈 (@WitchPrivilege) March 7, 2014
The LA Marathon is our equivalent of being snowed in...except we can walk to brunch.— Kayce Brown (@kaycebrown1) March 9, 2014
Others were just trying to get dehydrated runners from the L.A. Marathon (and San Diego's concurrent half-marathon) and marathon watchers wasted.
Gatorade mimosas for everyone.
