Greetings from Carrboro,
Generally, I don’t like prophetic gimmicks. You know, the whole fortune cookie thing. But there’s definitely a blurry line for me between a superstition and a tradition. On one hand, I like looking for four-leaf clovers – that feels like a spring tradition. But I’m decidedly less inclined to concern myself that stepping on a crack may break my mother’s back.
All that said, if you make a superstition delicious, I’m all in. Case in point: New Year’s Day brunch. As you may or may not know, the promise of health, wealth, and luck is intertwined in the South with a traditional meal eaten on the first day of the year. Greens are eaten for wealth, black-eyed peas for luck, and pork for health. I’d like to propose adding a fourth wheel under that party bus: bloody Marys for forgiveness. Every tradition needs a little updating every now and again. Am I right?
The Acme New Year’s Day Brunch extravaganza. We’ll do it right with all the health, wealth, and luck we can muster. It’s going to be 11am – 2pm on, well, you guessed it, New Year’s Day. For those of you playing at home that’s Monday. This Monday. Now, I’m not promising that you’ll win the lottery. Don’t want to get your hopes up. But I can guarantee a ridiculously delicious meal to kick-off 2018. And a stiff enough drink to put 2017 safely in the rearview mirror. Because honestly, brunch without alcohol is just breakfast.
Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
