1. You can sleep in as long as you want and still eat breakfast foods. No matter how late you hit the sheets last night, rest easy! You haven't wasted your day because brunch will still be there when you wake up.

2. You can go to fancy restaurants that you'd never otherwise be able to afford. Brunch specials are basically the eighth wonder of the world. It's cheaper than dinner so feel free to have your side order of bacon and eat it too.

3. Brunch is like a therapy session. Expect a rehash of the events from the night before, support from your friends on that questionable hook up, and scintillating conversation.

9. There's always artful food combos. Think breakfast pizza and you'll be slap happy for the rest of the day.
