All in rooftop

Brunchfaced: MLK Weekend

Did someone say 3 day weekend? Whoop whoop! Not one, not two, but three days to get brunchfaced; under the influence of brunch! From restaurant openings, to north county staples, to local neighborhood hangouts, there’s something for everyone! Here are my top picks on where to get brunchafced this MLK weekend!

Yoga + Brunch at New Hot Spot, Topside Terrace

When I find a place that is able to accommodate exercise, great views, and a delectable brunch, I’m totally there. Topside Terrace checks all those boxes and then some. On Saturdays, Topside offers a free yoga class for hotel guests and locals alike, before their brunch starts. So, I grabbed my yoga mat and headed downtown to get my flow on. There was something peaceful and simultaneously powerful about doing yoga on a terrace surrounded by skyscrapers. My mind and body felt strong. After yoga, each yogi received a glass of fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade. A much-appreciated gesture, since I hadn’t eaten yet.

Sunday Morning Remedy

Do you love blue skies, unbelievable views and great food and drinks? Then look no further than the 14th-floor rooftop destination bar, The Nolen, for “The Sunday Requirement.” I require that you try this place out as soon as possible! When I walked off the elevator and turned the corner, my jaw dropped to the floor. I was blown away by the expansive views and tall ceilings, as were the other members of my monthly Bloody Mary Meetup Group
