GGB Cleveland – May The Force Be With You Brunch
On a late May morning, jedis, padawans, droids, and sith lords from all over Northeast Ohio gathered to celebrate all things Star Wars. The Force was strong and flowing through the 18 brunchettes that dined at Lucky’s Cafe. Many wore their best Star Wars t-shirts, some represented their favorite droids, and our resident Jedi Master, Deb, came in her robes and taught us all how to properly fight with her lightsabers!
We were so excited to dine at Lucky’s. It was our first actual brunch location, with waffles, omelettes, and biscuits! The food did not disappoint, and we definitely want to go back and eat more pecan crusted bacon. It was a somewhat chilly day for May, so lattes were a favorite drink amongst the brunchettes. Stephen, the manager of Lucky’s Cafe, took good care of us all. His staff accommodated dietary restrictions and our request for separate checks. He even introduced us to the restaurant’s owner, Heather! They both participated in a bit of geeky fun and had their own lightsaber battle.
Officer Carolina made personalized coasters for everyone; they featured the brunchettes’ favorite Star Wars characters. They were a hit and our officers agreed to make this a regular party favor to commemorate future brunches. Our brunchettes also took home some pretty rad Star Wars stickers from Oriental Trading Company. For our bigger swag, we had the girls play Vader Bingo. Credit for the cute Bingo cards goes to Welcome to Crazy Town. Brunchettes Bri and Katrina won Bingo, and they got to take home some amazing swag that included tote bags, mugs, and action figures.
After we finished our delicious food at Lucky’s, we walked over to Lilly Handmade Chocolates. Our brunchettes capped off a perfect afternoon in the Tremont neighborhood with chocolate and beer pairings, and we discussed plans for future brunches. Everyone was quite excited for what GGB Cleveland had in store for this summer – Harry Potter, video games, anime, and British TV galore.
