Paying the price of too much partying? Then head to Rush Street in Culver City for a “morning after” restorative brunch. And if it's just too hard to drag out of bed, don't worry. You have plenty of time. Brunch on Saturday and Sunday starts at 9 a.m., but doesn't end until 3 p.m. (Which means that if you're a mess after yesterday's line-up, you're out of luck until next weekend.)
Start with a build-your-own Bloody Mary, choosing from a spread of hot sauces, olives, spices and garnishes set out on the bar.
Then dig into a Rush Street special–brats, fries and beer, which went on the menu this past Saturday in honor of football season. It's a real retro dish, a basket of Hofbrau brats in buns and a big helping of Tater Tots. The brats are laced with yellow mustard, then topped with caramelized onions. The $10 price includes a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.
Maybe you could ask for sweet potato fries or truffle fries instead of Tater Tots, but Rush Street's barbecue-seasoned Tots are darned good. Then sit back and watch a weekend game. There are eight TVs, which makes every seat a good one.
