    A Big Batch of Breakfast

    In case you haven't heard, our friends at Batch Craft Beer + Kolaches are now bringing their breakfast bonanza even earlier and better, with weekdays opening at 7am and weekends at 9am, and all of it resplendent with morning-time favorites like ham, egg, and cheese kolaches; bacon, egg, and cheese kolaches; maple-infused-dough kolaches with egg and sausage; and more.

    Emmer & Rye: American Diner Brunch

    Follow the argument along with us: 1) Emmer & Rye is one of the best restaurants in this city; 2) brunch there is always @%#! incredible; 3) the newest brunch menubecause they change it every three months – features their version of classic American diner fare, resulting in such delectables as the patty melt (with Texas Black Angus, caramelized onion, Thousand Island dressing, American cheese, and romaine on rye), the Say When, Hun (yeasted waffles, chocolate shavings, whipped cultured cream, and fruit), and more; and 4) the staff will be decked out in uniforms that match the theme. Thus, the logical conclusion: Not something you wanna miss out on, n’est-ce pas, citizen?

    Pitchfork Pretty: Rum for Your Life

    It’s not always about the goddamn tiki, is it? No! Chef Max Snyder’s excellent Eastside eatery is celebrating National Rum Month with a new program that features more than 40 rums from 20-plus countries. With rotating cocktails, flights, and rare finds sure to delight even the most jaded palate, this August at Pitchfork Pretty is shaping up as the most spirited month of tippling in town. (Our reco: Try the “Misfit Rum Flight” for one of those – whattayacallit? – next-level experiences.)

    Star Bar: Hail Mary

    It’s been voted one of the top ten Bloody Marys in America, and now Star Bar’s Hail Mary is back on the third Sunday of each month. The heaping cocktail is a collab with on-site food trailer Schaller’s Stube and features their glorious fried chicken sandwich – plus mini sausages, cheese, powdered donuts, chocolate donuts, peppers, pickles, tomatoes, and olives. You know what that is? That’s a meal in a glass, tell you what. This gig is usually sold out like whoa, though, so better make DM reservations via Star Bar’s Facebook or Instagram ASAP.
    Sun., March 15, 11am-3pm. $35.
