I don't believe in brunch. If I showed up at your house at 10:30 and ate waffles, breakfast pizza, and BnG I would say I was eating breakfast.

Always Burger. My mother in law and her husband always cook steak/order steaks. I just don't get it. If I want beef it's either a burger or brisket that I crave

I guess I would just call brunch, a late breakfast. Brinner on the the other hand is breakfast food served for dinner.

Thank you for taking the exact same stances as me.

I would never order "lunch" foods for brunch unless it was with eggs/hash browns. I don't think you can call eating a late breakfast brunch though. You really have to double down on the quantity of food for it to be a real brunch

Mine is breakfast survived near the lunch hour.

Would you expect non-breakfast foods to be served if you were invited to someone's house for brunch?
Hy-Vee has lunch options for their brunch, but if you showed up to my house, say this Saturday at 10:30 after i said I would host brunch, would you question if the only options were waffles, breakfast pizza, and BnG?


If you make it chicken and waffles it's brunch

Ohhhhh! Good idea. I will add that to the menu.

Waffles (with the option of air fried chicken tenders)
Casey's breakfast pizza
BnG
Sausage/Bacon/eggs - sides

Back to my original question, do I need to offer a more traditional "lunch" option to this?

The HyVee up here has a Sunday Brunch Buffet that has mostly breakfast items, but also includes things like salmon and shrimp. I think of brunch as being more of the time (like you said later morning) vs. what is served. I would still expect mostly breakfast foods, I feel like it would be weird to be invited to "brunch" but then be served a hamburger or something.

No I don't think so. I'd never expect what I eat for lunch at brunch. Maybe do the eggs in the form of a quiche or egg bake instead.

Bi-fold or tri-fold wallet?

Do you take stair steps 1 or 2 at a time?

Used to have a bulky tri-fold, changed a couple years ago to a skinny bi-fold and will never go back.

I'm usually a 2 at a time guy, but I suppose it depends on the height/depth of the stairs.

Bi-fold is the way to go because so much less back pocket girth. I am fine with it having a bigger footprint if it means sititng flatter. I also try to carry the minimal number of cards, but still have tons in there.

2 at a time when I am alone. I see tall people take 2 at a time and they look so goofy, I can't imagine how dumb I look when I do it. I also like to use the rail and do 40% of the upward/forward movement by pulling myself up.

I have a neither fold. It has a pocket on one side for a drivers license and then the rest of the slits are on the other. With a slide going through the middle and top

Taking 2 steps is the equivalent of trying to carry 40 folding chairs back to the garage.

So a money clip, but different. Is this why you forget your CC at home 75% of days?

I have this: https://www.thefrenchie.co/collections/ ... eed-wallet
I got it from their indiegogo campaign and I think it only cost me $40. It's probably the best crowdfunding project I've ever backed.

One at a time, but I always walk on the balls of my feet/toes to work my calves a little bit more.

Mine is kinda like that except it only has one pull tab instead of 2. It was also cheap on Amazon. Corey was jealous of it and copied me. Looking at my order history, the product page for it is no longer available on Amazon.

Ethan would have a crowdfunded wallet...

Wilkins, what does that gain you? It's just as thick as my wallet it seems.

It's really thin to me. It was a gift and my old wallet was falling apart so
