While it’s true that a real broke-ass, if craving the fancy brunch drink made up of OJ and champagne, might just walk around the corner to the liquor store and buy a $5 bottle of Cook’s (probably at that point just skipping the OJ altogether), there all instances in which finding a good bottomless mimosa brunch is necessary or you just fucking feel like going to one (like you need a LOT of hair of the dog or your best friend is visiting for the day from Sacramento and you’re trying to entice her to move to the city. Through alcohol).
Now, there are reasonable all-you-can-drink prices and there are downright expensive ones. I consider myself privileged to live by a spot, Nickies, that despite being a sports bar, has a reputation for serving delicious food and the fact of offering $8 bottomless mimosas on their weekend brunch menu.
You do have to buy a brunch item to get the $8 deal, but hopefully you WOULD be eating something if you planned to sit somewhere and get hammered for three hours anyway. On top of that, the prices for brunch dishes are all in the $8 range (I recommend the breakfast sandwich with house potatoes, because I’m obsessed with sandwiches, or the french toast, because that’s almost a sandwich), which isn’t bad.
Another tip: If there are no big games on, be prepared to enjoy the company of your friends (or yourself, if you’re the lone wolf type) because the bar is likely to be pretty dead during brunch hours. This is good, meaning the server will have nothing else to do but attend to your mysteriously perpetually-empty champagne flute.Nickies 466 Haight St. (between Webster & Fillmore) [Lower Haight] $8 Bottomless Mimosas on Weekends With Purchase of Brunch Entree
