Dreams really will come true for worshippers at the altar of Eggs Benedict this March when BrunchCon, a food festival devoted to brunch, takes over Grand Prospect Hall. The ornate ballrooms that presided over so many weddings will now look on as attendees feast on chicken and waffles and get plastered on mimosas. This taxidermied pheasant looks worried, tbh.

Organizers are promising over 50 of NYC's "hottest brunch restaurants," which so far includes spots like Bricolage, Butter & Scotch, Midnights, Cafe Grumpy, Beast of Bourbon and Black Swan. Even those fully loaded egg waffles from Wowfulls will be there. Seems like a missed opportunity for NYC's first brunch-only restaurant, but maybe they're trying not to dilute the brand.

The Convention debuted in Los Angeles last summer, with 2,500 attendees, so organizers claim. It seems unlikely there's capacity for that many at Grand Prospect Hall—even with the beer garden—but there are lots of nooks and crannies in that place.

One of the nooks will be housing a "Hangover Lounge" for guests to "enjoy a dark room and hair-of-the-dog cocktails." There's also an open mimosa bar, which should help facilitate some connections in the Speed Dating area of the event. Say what you want about sceney brunch restaurants in NYC, but none of them ever tried to make you feel less alone.

Tickets are in the early bird phase at the moment, so you can score GA for $55 and VIP for $90. Prices go up after February 15th, so if you want to commit to a cheaper future champagne hangover, the time is now.
