GGB NOLA – We <3 You: A Galentine's Day Brunch
Yes, we DID forget to take a group picture…but we were there! 😀
GGB NOLA held its Galentine’s Day Brunch at the wonderful Basin Seafood & Spirits. Out-of-towners might not realize we’re right in the middle of Carnival…here in New Orleans that means lots of traffic and being stuck while parades take over major streets! Thankfully Basin has a $15 bottomless mimosa deal and a fantastic brunch menu. Our server introduced herself as “Kat, Meow Meow” so we knew we were off to a good start! Kat was quick to let us know about drink specials, and she took special care to consider whether we were doing separate checks. We quickly placed our orders and dove into a variety of geeky conversation — we debated about the best times to watch horror movies, talked about the pros/cons of spoilery movie trailers, and pondered about whether Robert Pattinson is truly ready to don the Bat Suit.
Our meals were delicious and ranged from pork hash to Belgian Waffles. Kat was super-attentive and has somehow mastered the absolutely perfect mimosa pour (right up to the rim!).
Our Brunchettes had the chance to win 2 different raffle prizes, and everyone walked away with a handwritten Friendship Card. We ended our time together with the typical “OK, how am I meeting up with my friends on the parade route?” adventure we New Orleanians embark upon every Mardi Gras weekend.
Thank you all for coming out! If you find yourself on Magazine Street in New Orleans, stop by Basin Seafood!
