Boozy Sunday brunches worth getting out of bed for
Crack open an eye. Bathroom stop. Check your phone. Back to bed. Does that breed familiarity like a good old Sunday morning? There's very little we would drag ourselves out of bed for on the last day of the weekend, but a boozy brunch accompanied with sweet tunes and our best crew might just do the trick. While alcohol can cost an arm and a leg on our sunny state, there are times it doesn't have to — when we're being smart with our choices.
We've rounded up a list of Sunday brunches that come with free-flow alcohol at a fixed price, so keeping happily inebriated doesn't have to come at a mind-numbing cost. All you have to do is roll out of bed and make sure your liver is in good form.
