The 4th of July falling on a Friday this year is pretty amazing, not only because it means a 3-day weekend, but also because brunch can begin a day early! We all know that brunch is one of Angelenos’ favorite pastimes, and several restaurants all around the LA area are offering up brunch hours and special items to celebrate America the right way. Here are some local hotspots from every part of Los Angeles that are putting weekend brunch to shame and starting it a day early this Friday for 4th of July.
Restaurant: Brick + Mortar
Brunch: Before heading to the beach, stop by Brick + Mortar for their infamous brunch, complete with a live DJ to pump you up for the day’s festivities. Both the bottomless mimosas as well as DIY Bloody Bar will be available, giving brunchers the ultimate decision of choosing between mixing B+M’s refreshing tomato concoction with either vodka, tequila, or beer. All normal brunch items will be available, with favorites such as the Fried Chicken & Waffles w/ Maple Butter, Breakfast Pizza, and Chorizo + Egg Burrito.
