BrunchCon LA to Give Attendees a Taste of the Best Morning Eats
It’s not quite breakfast, it’s not quite lunch, but it certainly is delicious. For Los Angeles fans of the tweener meal, BrunchCon LA is a long overdue celebration of everything that mid-morning cuisine has to offer. If your weekend plans were already going to incorporate brunch, why not make it official with one of four sessions coming to the city on Aug. 12 and 13?
Following successful events in New York, Washington and Chicago, BrunchCon will gather the Southland’s biggest brunch vendors at The Reef in Downtown L.A. Attendees will get to sample specialties from 50-plus vendors at the event as part of their admission. Visitors can also, naturally, take advantage of bottomless mimosas at any of the six bars sprinkled throughout the event. For fans looking to try something a little different, there are also brunch-themed cocktails available.
It’s not all food and drink, though, as this event has some fun extras. For starters, a live DJ will be bumping grooves throughout BrunchCon sessions, and attendees can gather with fellow brunch enthusiasts at the photo booth to commemorate the affair with some brunch-centric props. Eventgoers can also enjoy casual lawn games like giant Jenga, cornhole and much more. BrunchCon also has over a dozen curated product and apparel vendors on site so brunch-fiends can get their shop on in between bites.
Tickets are broken down into morning and afternoon sessions on Aug. 12 and Aug. 13. General admission tickets, which include everything described above, cost $65 per session. Attendees can also indulge in a VIP experience for $95, which entails all the attractions listed above plus a special gift bag, VIP Lounge access, and half hour early admission to get the party started before everybody else. The event also offers $20 onsite parking or a designated Uber/Lyft drop off area.
