Last weekend a new-ish friend to our group noted that its surprising how ALL of our friends LOVE Halloween. And we do – we all really really really love this holiday. We love it so much that we scoff when others hold their weddings over Halloween weekend (you know who you are).

Halloween weekend is a sacred yearly event that combines all our two most favorite things: booze + costumes. Plus there are adorable trick-or-treaters, the opportunity to scare the shit out of strangers (or better yet, our friends), tons of candy, and a group dance-off to Thriller… it really can’t be beat.

Where will you be celebrating this year? We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite options:

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: Cocina Condesa

We’ve been craving non-standard mimosas of late. The typical OJ+champy just isn’t doing it for us this fall, so in our quest to find bottomless mimosa spots that offer some alternate boozy-brunch-cocktail combos, we came across this gem in Studio City:

WIN TICKETS: LA Weekly’s Brunch at The Races

One of our closest friends (we’ll call her ‘Pretty Little Pony’) loves horses. She loves them a  lot. Supposedly she rode horses as a child and thus this fascination has a foundation, but we just like to make it a weird thing so we can make fun of her…. like a crazy cat lady. Because we are really nice friends.

Why are we telling you this? Well, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to LA Weekly’s ‘Brunch at the Races‘, going down October 18th 11am – 2pm at Santa Anita Park. It’s brunch + ponies! unnamed

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: Ox & Son


We love when we get to share a spot AFTER we’ve actually tried it (really – we’re tipsters, not reviewers). And awesomely, V was generous enough to stop by this new Santa Monica brunch option last weekend & report back the boozy details (or at least those she remembers….)

Boozy Brunch Spot: Ox & Son, Santa Monica

Boozy Brunch Hours: Friday 11-3pm + Sat/Sun 9:30am – 3pm

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: Basin 141



With V’s sister moving back to La Canada, she’s been taking frequent trips out that-a-way to be a good Auntie. And so, it was only prudent that we find bottomless mimosa spots a short Uber trip away. Family time is always better served with a side of free flowing mimosas!


Boozy Brunch Spot: Basin 141, Montrose

Boozy Brunch Hours: Sat 11am – 2pm & Sundays 10am – 2pm

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: Tavern on 2

Trojans are really good at lots of things, but a few stand out from our time there: networking, entrepreneurship…. and drinking. So it makes sense there’d be a decent number of SC alumni backed restaurants, bars, and booze-related start ups.

Tavern on 2 in Long Beach is one of those Trojan-owned spots, and if the number of articles & reader tips we get on this place is any indication – the place is awesome. AND even more awesome: they serve bottomless mimosas.


Boozy Brunch Spot: Tavern on 2, Belmont Shores – Long Beach

Bottomless Mimosa Hours: DAILY, Open – 3pm

Brunch-Food Hours: Weekends, 9:30am – 1pm
