Our October was full of great events! We’re so grateful our lovely Brunchettes come out not only for brunch, but also hang out together for happy hours, trivia nights, and Halloween parties!
We started off the month with a GGB NOLA Happy Hour at Amici Ristorante & Bar. We’ve gone to Amici for a brunch last year, but we were blown away but their happy hour deals! The restaurant offers $5 personal pizzas and other special price appetizers (wings, arancini, etc.) from 4-7pm every Monday through Friday. Our server was spectacular and even worked with us to create a custom cocktail for our officer Kuniqua! As we enjoyed our table full of pizzas, the conversation ranged from future events to exotic cars and the current political climate. If you’re ever on Magazine Street in NOLA and in the mood for fantastic pizza, be sure to come by Amici!
Our October brunch was a continuation of last year’s Villains theme, but with a Disney twist. Our Brunchettes definitely got into the theme! We had 2 Madames Mim, Uma (from The Descendants), and a whole lot of Disney-inspired attire and makeup. We literally blew into Basin Seafood and Spirits (really, there was a storm that day) on a windy Sunday and made quite the impression! Our server immediately had to know all of the details, and we got more than a couple of looks from other patrons as our crew came in. We always strive to find brunches with bottomless mimosas, and Basin Seafood did not disappoint. For $15 they provide a perfect ratio of OJ to champagne, and the refills did not stop. The entrees and appetizers were just as amazing…our orders included french toast, pork & hash, fish tacos, and boudin balls. As we wrapped up our meals, we of course did our monthly raffle! Items this month included a super-cool Maleficient hat, Evil Queen YA novel, and an Alice in Wonderland wallet. This month’s swag was yet another exclusive GGB NOLA coaster.
We ended October with 2nd place in a Disney trivia (go GGB NOLA!) and a Halloween bash hosted by our amazing Brunchette Kali. Seeing our members become friends and hang out beyond brunch has been so amazing…keep being wonderful!
October was a fun-filled start to fall. We’re looking forward to finishing the year strong with our Brunchettes! Stay tuned for our 2nd annual Friendsgiving and GGB NOLA anniversary events!
