Brunch at Fremont Chicago

My birthday celebrations continued this past weekend with a birthday trip to Chicago. Now, the main attraction for this trip was my best friend’s daughter’s birthday party.  She turned five and just so happens to have a birthday the day before mine.  After her daughter’s  “unicorn extravaganza” my bestie treated me to brunch at Fremont Chicago, because what is a better gift for someone like me?!  So here is a peek in to the Chicago brunch scene with my review of the Brunch at Fremont Chicago.  The Setup The first thing that guests should know is Fremont is literally a [...]

Fielding’s Rooster

This location is now closed.  Please visit the other Fielding's Locations in the Woodlands area!    It should be no surprise to anyone reading this that I will travel for a good brunch.   A few weekends ago I hit up Fielding's Rooster way out in the Woodlands with members of Zipkick Houston.  It was a bit of a drive, but within minutes of the tasting I decided it was totally worth it!  While I was there for a brunch, we got to try a variety of items on the menu!

House of Blues Gospel Brunch

Alright, I am guessing that like me, many of my followers have heard of the House of Blues Gospel Brunch which is held monthly at House of Blues locations around the country.   Also, like me many of you probably have never been partly because you are not sure what to expect.  I mean it is not MY church so will they play OUR kind of gospel music?? And what about the food? Will it be good? These are all questions I wondered after being offered two passes to the House of Blues Gospel Brunch sponsored by Cricket Wireless.  I grabbed [...]

Brunch and Football!

The calendar says it is fall, yet Houston temperatures say otherwise! Despite our fall weather challenges there are a few other signs that fall is upon us, including football!  Eventually the weather will cooperate and when it does, two of the greatest Sunday events converge to create the ultimate Sunday Funday!  Brunch and Football! So here is how I made this list.   There are plenty of brunch spots around town, but many of them do not have ample televisions to really enjoy all of the Sunday NFL games.   On the other end, many sports bars lack dedicated brunch [...]
