    Hi all,

    I'd love for as many people here as possible to experience dining at my GNR nominee -- Prairie Grass Cafe -- and I was thinking it might be nice to have a brunch there (click here for brunch menu), so people can enjoy what may very well be my favorite meal they serve (not that I don't love their lunch and dinner, too :wink:).

    The plan is to have brunch at PGC on Saturday September 27 at 11:30 am.

    Below are pictures of a couple of my favorite PGC brunch dishes . . .

    Any and all LTHForum members and their family/friends are welcome and encouraged to join.

    Please post here -- with the number in your party -- if you would like to join us this coming Saturday. I'll keep a running list of attendees here on the thread. Please reply by no later than 6 pm on Friday September 26. At that point, I'll call the restaurant and let them know how many of us will be coming the next morning. There's no need to cap attendance yet but if our group gets too large, I may have to cap it later.

    Thanks!

    I'd love to join ... if it weren't for the fact that I'm already going to PGC for brunch Sunday, 9/28.

    My Saturday mornings are usually pretty busy, but I have been craving some great eggs Benedict (the question being which version? which version?). So if we are not out too late at Chaihanna on Friday night (please--no dancing on the table tops, Ronnie!), I will do my best to make it to PGC by 11:30 am this Saturday....

    Sounds good, tarte. Hopefully, I will be able to keep my feet planted on the floor on Friday night but my MIL will be joining us, so who knows . . . :wink:

    We're up to 5 for brunch and hopefully, more will join us.

    I too wish I could join, but will instead be brunching on croissants and macaroons at Pierre Herme in Paris, followed shortly thereafter by chicchetti and prosecco in Venice.

    We're up to about 8 for brunch tomorrow, counting "maybes" and including a few who replied off-thread. If anyone else would like to join us, please just come to the restauant at 11:30 am on Saturday morning.

    See you then,

    I'm hungry. Make me a definite. I need a good breakfast before heading to Vito & Nick's for an afternoon snack.
