According to Brunch a Historyby author Farha Ternikar, which is apparently the Bible of brunch studies, the hybrid meal gained favor in 1895 England either as a meal for after-church English Catholics or "as a late Sunday breakfast for Saturday night pub crawlers."

Actually, according to the same book, people in China and France were eating brunch for centuries before that with dim sum and le grand petit déjeuner, respectively.  As it developed through the years and in countless countries, it spoke to relaxation, of the freedom to eat breakfast or lunch foods in the same meal.

And, of course, to drink, if you were so inclined. 

Which brings us to today. Or more exactly Saturday.

This Saturday you can join the Houston Press from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Bayou City Event Center Pavilion as we celebrate the first ever The  Morning After, A Houston Press Bottomless Brunch Sampling Event.
