The Bloody Mary and the curiously counter-culture history of brunch. 

Brunch was born over a hundred years ago and since then it’s been a lot of things to a lot of people: a reason to relax, a time for over-indulgence, an excuse to get laid. So what’s happened to it in the last couple decades and what do we do when our counterculture becomes just… culture? We also look at the Bloody Mary, an equally curious drink and brunch’s constant companion. Special guests this week are Sother Teague, beverage director of Amor y Amargo, Chef Kyle Bailey of the Salt Line in Washington, DC and Brian Bartels, author of the book “The Bloody Mary.
