I've always thought of brunch as a bougie weekend breakfast gathering, where you can ease the pain of your hangover with sunglasses and bottomless mimosas, all while bragging about last night's blackout between bites of eggs.
Then, I moved to the city and realized not all brunches are created equal.
Don't get me wrong: In every metropolis, you'll find tons of places that display the stereotypical scene of well-dressed brunch-goers sipping on fancy lattes and shamelessly Snapchatting their gluten-free blueberry pancakes.
However, you might be surprised to know there are also some "brunches" where the booze flows freely, loud music fills the air and overpriced oatmeal is nowhere to be found.
It's a brunch in which the lights are turned low, bandage dresses are the norm and drunkenly dancing on tables at 2 in the afternoon is not only acceptable, but encouraged.
This glorious weekend gathering, my friends, is known as Hip Hop Brunch LDN.
Once you've gotten sufficiently shit faced off those free drinks, you can stuff your face with three courses of soul food. The brunch includes dishes like "Beyoncé's Baked Chicken" and "Snoop's Vegetable Fajita."
