Brunch is boring, but that's part of the charm of it.~ Nicolas Berggruen
Well, let's just say that this brunch was far from "boring," but it did have charm and more. On Sunday July 16 at 12 noon, Toast, a new brunch concept kicked off at Apres Lougne on Fulton Street.
Orchestrated by New Orleans heavy hitters in PR and party promoters, JT Thomas of Ascension Branding, Katy Sandusky of Kaylain Public Relations and Marketing, and of course, Larry Morrow of Larry Morrow Events, did what they do best—plan, promote and produce.
The trio is known for making collaborations work to the satisfaction of the outgoing New Orleanian, professional worker and the party goer in need of some sophistication all in the name of Urban Entertainment.
Apres Lounge served as a great venue spot to host Toast's brunch. Its ambiance was dim litted which gave feelings of a nightclub, a romantic dinner surrounded by candles or just simple intimacy. For a minute, you could've easily forgotten that the goal was to socialize, enjoy Mimosas and most importantly, brunch with the guests.
With a DJ playing nostalgic hits from the 2000s including the sounds of 112, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Keith Sweat and more, Toast will fastly rise to become another spot to add on to one's socialite calendar.
A cover charge of a modest $25 dollars, covered the base for an all you can eat buffet catered by the ever so tasteful eatery, Lenora's Grill. Delectable food items included scrambled eggs and steak, chicken and waffles, shrim and grits, small deserts, fruit and more; it was worth the investement not to mention an included Mimosa.
With a crowd that picked up as the hours went on, and a day party that followed, Toast showcased the still present power that Morrow, Sandusky and Thomas bring with their quality events in a cohesive manner. To simply put it, they get things done with organization and preperation for even the most hectic and unpredictable moments.
However, Toast went off without a hitch in sight, and if there was something hidden to the attendees eye, you wouldn't have any way of knowing it.
Let us make a "Toast" to non-boring brunches with continous great food, fellowship and a good time. Toast gets an A+ for its debut due to its professionalism, tidiness, communicative hosts, good food, an affordable price, great location and overall, a great experience.
