Ladies, Start Your Skillets: International Summer Brunch Day Is This Sunday

Bunchsters! Don’t forget that you’ll be brunching this Sunday in along with the rest of the brunchateers at Autostraddle International Summer Brunch Day 2012.

Thanks to our intrepid hosts and the dubious magic of Facebook, we’ve got brunches planned all over the world and we’d love to have you. You can get all the details on your local meet-up on the original AISBD post.

If you don’t see your city on the map, it’s not too late! Grab a group of friends, put a call out on Autostraddle Social or brave it alone and flirt with your waitress. Do something!

While you’re there, don’t forget to take pictures; seeing your shiny happy faces warms the cockles of our hearts and gives us hope that we’re doing more than just furiously typing away on keyboards all day long.

Onward ho, brunchees!

  1. dearest nyc, forgive me for being out of town this weekend.

    i’ll be forcing my girlfriend who hates brunch to eat brunch with me in new jersey.

    this counts as participating, right?

    rachel, one of these days i will finally attend a new york brunch.

    until then, i am really looking forward to carmen’s get baked. like really really really.

  2. Sunday is my mother’s birthday. I had to explain this Brunch to her as my excuse for not joining her and the rest of my family at the beach for the weekend. Oops! Sorry Ma I love you but Brunch wins! Luckily she was super understanding!

  3. As a former resident of Minnesota I find the lack of a twin cities brunch option disappointing.

    I’m going to go ahead and assume y’all are too busy going out and doing actual gay shit to plan a brunch on here. Maybe you’ll just all end up at the Perkins across from the Townhouse at 3 a.m. and call it brunch.

    • I tried but nobody responded. :( I suppose my girlfriend and I could have an Autostraddle brunch of 2. That would maybe count I guess?

      Also, due to the lightrail construction, crossing University right now is nearly impossible. Dreams dashed all over the place!

      • If I had a ride, I totally would have been down for twin cities brunch! Alas, I’m from Northfield and can’t drive. :(

  4. Wait, shit, I’m confused. The title says Sunday but you wrote in the article that it’s Saturday.

  5. Looking like my Autostraddle “brunch” will be a small, intimate gathering of two. But in honor of Marika, it will be pants less! That, and frankly I prefer my girl pants less, she’s got the cutest little….

    • I have a friend in Orlando that wants to brunch! Let me know if you’re anywhere near there.

  6. That moment when you realize that you’re totally gonna have your period this weekend.

  7. Way to go Denver! We have a pretty good sized group going. Now, you all better show up! ;)

  8. Oh, whoa, straddlers in Nashville? I’m over in Knoxville, but this makes me hopeful for my life and future.

  9. yay brunch! this was a little bit of a nightmare to organise – apparently auckland hates large group brunch bookings – but now it’s all done and i’m excited! :D

  10. Atlanta has an unofficial “group” (I put group in quotes because it may very well be just me looking really awkward…) going to the Flying Biscuit. There’s a thread in the original post. Please come and relieve me of my awkward misery! :)

    • I am not driving to DC brunch so that I can save my gas money for, you know, camp and things. But I will eat brunch with y’all in spirit. Have so much fun!

  11. Brunch and mimosas and NYC Autostraddlers and OMG the feelings. Counting down the days.

  12. If there was an Autostraddle brunch ANYWHERE in the state of Montana, I would totally go to it.
    But if it wants to come to me and have a picnic in my front yard, that is okay too.
