Saturday, March 11, 2023 – Nerdy 30s Ladies of KC – Brunch, simply enough, is a combination of breakfast and lunch. But of course, words experienced live never strictly follow the dictionary definition.
Last Saturday I almost cancelled my brunch plans due to a long week at work and feeling exhausted from the long week at work. In my mind being too tired was not a good enough reason to cancel plans so I went. I’m glad I did, even with the slight fear that I didn’t fit in with the brunch crowd. I just wanted two hours where I could escape my thoughts.
I love these Nerdy 30s ladies because I am always thoroughly entertained and lightened up when I’m around them. I kid you not. They made my work stress melt away and my tiredness was replaced with incessant laughter. No one in our group had been to Urban Egg before, but everyone was up for trying something new. The place was packed. They have something on the menu for everyone. It’s one of those jam-packed menus where if you were trying to Microsoft print to PDF, you’d have to select “shrink to fit one page.”
So yes, the menu at first looks a little overwhelming and brings on the indecisive anxiety, but seriously, you really can’t go wrong with anything. Barely any boxes were needed at the end of the meal. For drinks, they have all kinds of coffee and all kinds of alcoholic brunch options. I vaguely remember one of my first ever Nerdy 30s events and someone ordering mimosas and kept them coming. That’s when I realized I may not fit in with the brunch crowd. I went for a café mocha and let me tell you, like you see in the picture, it tasted like what all the American girls would call a guy “dreamy” if café mocha were a guy.
Most of the girls ordered alcoholic brunch drinks and kept them coming. Those drinks tasted like vacation adventure stories to Jamaica, TV shows you didn’t know you shouldn’t be watching, and thrillers you should be reading with the lights on.
It was nice to be able to listen to book recommendations while giving out book recommendations as well. Getting homework in the form of new TV show must-watches was a first for me. There will be follow-up at the next brunch for sure. Because tiredness knows no opponent like a good laugh with all your girls.
