Fuck Brunch

The Anvil Pub, 2638 Elm Street in Dallas, doesn’t have a brunch menu, but has a “Fuck Brunch” menu. One item on this menu is a double Bloody Mary. Anvil Pub co-owner Loc Holman explained, “Who needs brunch when you have a Bloody Mary with a burger on it? Man, fuck brunch!”

The name “Fuck Brunch” (not trademarked) has not yet been used by any other establishment.

OK, so, for the uninitiated: What exactly is a Fuck Brunch?
It’s a double Bloody Mary with a whole bunch of condiments that make up a pretty decent meal, in my opinion. It’s certainly enough to get you through a few hours of good ol’ drinkin’.

How’d you come up with it?
My buddies El Gato [Johnny Sundt] and Ashleigh [Steinwender] and I were here at Anvil, and Johnny was looking at pictures on his phone and came across this crazy Bloody Mary with a burger on it. We just took the idea and ran with it. So, I can’t claim to be the inventor. But, as you can see, I take pride in the building of each one. And different and better ingredients are added every time. It’s just fun to see people’s faces when they get it. That’s one of the many things that make our jobs as bartenders so much fun

Why the name Fuck Brunch? What’s your problem with brunch?
I love brunch! Who doesn’t? We just don’t offer it here. The name really started as a joke. We just said, “Who needs brunch when you have a Bloody Mary with a burger on it? Man, fuck brunch!”

Anvil Pub in Deep Ellum Has an Insane Bloody Mary

Once a month, Anvil Pub thumbs its nose at the ubiquitous Sunday afternoon offerings of pancakes and infinite eggs Benedict variations by serving the aptly named “Fuck Brunch” drink, a behemoth of a Bloody Mary adorned with a rotating selection of a shit-ton of garnishes.
