On Saturday, April 13, New Times' Out to Brunch moves to its new Design District home for an afternoon of food, music, and day-drinking.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Jungle Plaza will transform into a swanky soiree filled with free-flowing mimosas, a bloody mary bar, and delicious food.
Quench your thirst at 13 stations serving beverages such as wine by Riboli Family Estates and Papi Wines, cocktails, frosé, sangria, and rosé beer.
Spice up your life at the bloody mary bar, make your own cocktail, or sashay over to the champagne station for bubbles by Veuve Clicquot.
Feeling wild? Take a picture with one of Jungle Island's resident creatures. You can also snap a selfie in the 180-degree photo booth, watch the pros in action at Oliva cigar-rolling stations, or simply relax to the smooth sounds of saxophonist Will Canton.
