Brunching – Food & Booze Together as One

Whoever thought of the genius idea of waking up a little later and boozing with your breakfast deserves an award for being “Badass” in my book. The term “Brunch”, as you probably know, combines the words “breakfast” and “lunch” (duh). It’s the perfect excuse to not feel guilty about purposely day-drinking and eating extremely scrumptious and belt bursting grub with your closest pals, because in actuality, the weekend brunch has turned into a social event loved by many. So, get ready to order that custom Bloody Mary (or three) and top off that Mimosa. It’s Brunch season in Vegas, baby!!

Mingo Kitchen & Lounge

Brunch at Mingo Kitchen & Lounge is all about letting loose and enjoying some killer and “playfully” named brunch fare with your buds. The menu is creative and risque, while still leaving nothing to question that this is some seriously good, hangover curing grub. First things first, when you go, you have to order the “Bloody Beast”. This ain’t your mommy’s Bloody Mary. This sucker has a custom blend of herbs and spices and is topped with thick cut bacon and a slider. Yes, a baby cheeseburger on top of your booze (#manshit). Other tasteful creations include “Fruity Pebbles French Toast” (#fruityinthebooty) with cinnamon lemon creme, berries, and bourbon syrup. “Angel Eggs” (#devilindisguise) with Sriracha thick cut bacon, black truffles, and chives. “Hangover Hash” with two eggs, roasted vegetables and potatoes (the real deal) and the famous “PBJ” (#kidclassic) with PB, home made strawberry jam, berries and banana. Mingo Kitchen & Lounge will, hands down, be your new favorite Brunch spot. 1017 S 1st St #180, Las Vegas, NV 89101 702.685.0328 www.eatmixmingo.com  #Sungaybrunch on Sundays 11am
