Who loves Brunch? Everyone loves brunch...
Cleveland Scene Magazine put on a brunch event called United We Brunch in downtown Cleveland. After looking through the expected vendors I knew we had to go. There were so many restaurants participating in the event that we had heard great things about in the Cleveland area but hadn't had time to try yet. We told Sarah, Bryan and Lauren about the event and they also got tickets and met up with us.
United We Brunch was held in the 5th Street Arcade. We got to sample different brunch foods and drinks. Right after walking in we all tried a Bloody Mary. None of us had ever had one, and we all agreed we probably would never have one again. We all went for a Mimosa for our next drink which was much much better. We also tried a Buckeye Beer Engine Beer Mimosa which was surprisingly great. It was mostly beer with a little bit of orange juice on top. Adam and Bryan both tried a Portside Brewery Beer that had a slight taste of bacon. The girls opted for a Mimosa as our last drink.

The food samples were delicious. There were tons of options such as sausage gravy over biscuits, pizza (from Crust), chocolate truffles, breakfast burritos (from South Side), bagel bites, yogurt, tiny tuna sandwiches, scones, sushi bites (Sushi86), Pick Your Pie pie cups, mini pancakes, fancy mac n' cheese, Cajun potatoes, mini chicken and waffles, etc. Most of the booths had cards and other information to take home and we will definitely be trying some of these restaurants in the future.
The only down side to the event was the lack of space. It was sold out so there was a huge crowd. It was pretty difficult to eat, talk and drink while standing (this also made it very hard to take photos, so sorry for the few crappy photos I did end up getting). Overall, the event was awesome and definitely worth the price. We would go again in a heart beat.
