Day Drinking

Cuchara Serves Its First Saturday Brunch This Weekend

Double the brunch, double the fun.

Who says brunch is only for Sundays? Maybe some of us have stuff to do on Sundays, okay? Maybe Saturdays are the only time you and your friends can get together for some high-quality day-drinking. Or maybe you just want to make the most of your days off and two brunches in one weekend. Cuchara is there for you, my mimosa-loving friends.

Starting tomorrow, the Mexican restaurant in Montrose will be serving brunch on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. In celebration of its first-ever Saturday brunch—which runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.—Cuchara will be pouring $2 micheladas and offering $2 molletes in addition to its full brunch menu.

If you are among those who use brunch as a period of recovery after a long night of festivities, both micheladas and molletes make excellent hangover cures. Micheladas function as the Mexican version of a bloody Mary—sub spicy hot sauce for V-8 and beer for vodka. Molletes are mean comfort food: buttered bollilos, toasted, and topped with refried beans and cheese. (Here you can also add potatoes and chorizo for $4 extra.)

But if you need more than beer and bolillos, check out Cuchara's full brunch menu of favorites like chilaquiles, pozole, and huevos divorciados.
