Breakfast and Brunch

Honey Launches New Sunday Liquid Brunch to Keep You Partying Past 3 p.m.

If you're like most South Floridians, you love brunch. In fact, the more outrageous the brunch, the better. You guys love brunch so much, you might be tempted to admit that you never want it to end.

For everyone out there that dreads the end of Sunday brunch come 3 p.m., there's a new alternative. You can head to the Sunday brunch afterparty at Honey in Delray Beach.

Rather than call it quits come mid-afternoon, the party powers that be over at Honey have something special in store. According to Subculture Restaurant Group vice president Scott Frielich and Honey partner Dave Robinson, this is one boozy after-brunch party you won't want to miss.

"Over the last few months we've spent a lot of Sundays visiting each of our restaurants and their brunches, and what we noticed was that guests were still hanging out past 3 p.m., partying way past the end of brunch," says Frielich. "Dave had the idea to continue the party at Honey, what we think is the perfect indoor/outdoor venue for enjoying — or avoiding — the later afternoon summer heat."

The inaugural Honey Liquid Brunch will kick off at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 3. Each brunch "after party" will be set to a new theme, and guests are encouraged to get more involved by dressing up according to each week's creative inspiration. This week, it's superheroes. Expect the entire Honey staff to be in costume, including bar manager Mike Gigler's pet pig, Rupert.
If you're still planning on regular brunch, that's OK too. The party actually starts much earlier over at Subculture restaurants Dubliner and Kapow! in Boca Raton's Mizner Park with their Superhero Brunch. Beginning this weekend, both restaurants will be teaming up for a thematic dual brunch party in their shared atrium courtyard from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday.

Although both restaurants will be serving up their standard brunch menus, both chefs will also be planning a series of weekly brunch specials available at each restaurant they can pair with $5 Tito's vodka Bloody Mary Bar, $15 bottomless mimosas, and $15 bottomless draft beer.

This Sunday, selections will include Dubliner executive chef David Ortiz's house-cured salmon (served with potato latkes, creme fraiche, chives, and caviar) or the "Morning After" burger (served with maple onion jam, hash browns, bacon, fried egg, cheddar between French toast buns).

"From there, everyone who's still in the mood to hang out after brunch can head over to Honey for the real show," says Frielich, who has teamed up with the Party Robot for weekly live entertainment featuring RoboDolls, a team of girls set to perform action-packed, choreographed performances throughout the evening.

Keep in mind, this is still a liquid brunch — which means no food. In place of indulgent dishes and bottomless drink specials, Honey's bar team is getting creative instead. They'll be using a cotton candy machine to whip up a number liquor-infused, cocktail-inspired cotton candy treats in flavors like Stoli Raz Berry, Captain Morgan rum Cinnamon Crunch, and Bacardi Rum Butter.

Honey's Liquid Brunch will take place from 2 to 10 p.m. every Sunday at 16 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach. Call 561-270-7187, or visit
