Five Reasons Brunch Is So Overrated
Express your unpopular opinion. That Twitter hashtag gave me the courage to admit the unthinkable: I really hate brunch.

OK, I know what you're thinking. Whenever I admit this to someone, I'm confronted with looks of disbelief and the follow-up question, "Do you hate puppies?" Though I dressed up as Cruella de Vil for Halloween three years in a row, I promise. I do not hate puppies.
Brunch is just an awful meal -- and its unbelievably overrated. So before the weekend starts, I want to arm you with the facts. There is life outside of those pricey brunch buffets and bottomless pits of watered-down mimosas.
5. It's a waste of time.
Usually, you go to brunch with friends and/or family, and this requires planning a set time. A call or text the night before seems simple enough. The problem? One person in every group will have a crazy night and be hungover. There will be another person who will wake up early, workout, feel great, and then be hangry by the time brunch rolls around. Fact: These two people do not play nicely together.
It's also likely that the time they agreed upon is the same time everyone else agreed upon. That means you will probably have to wait for a table. Waiting while hangry or hungover has disaster written all over it.
Thankfully, unlike other cities, Miami restaurants rarely have wait times. But if they do, they're so spread out that you can't go somewhere else without driving. Because, really, who wants to wait an hour for a table when it's hot outside and you are hungover and/or hangry?
