This is the meal that DC knows how to do best, better than New York even.
Brunch is really fantastic because you don’t have to wake up early for it, you can order whatever kind of food you want and it often involves bottomless something-or-other.
Brunch is also a good time to hang out with people at the intersection of (1) don’t really want to hang out with you at night and (2) really need alcohol to talk to you.
Brunch is, as Jimmy Fallon said, “alcoholism with a side of toast.” Alcoholism is something DC does really well and toast is something anyone can make. Result: DC does brunch really, really well.
