D.C. is known for three things: politics, monuments… and brunch. The ladies of the hilarious and informative ‘Bitches Who Brunch’ blog partnered with Heirloom Catering & Event Design for a Sunday brunch festival at Long View Gallery to welcome the Fall season. Bottomless Bloody Marys and mimosas, savory eats, live music, fall fashion and even a photo booth was on the agenda. South Moon Under’s pop-up shop offered stylish buys for a fall/winter wardrobe, and local duo James and Emma provided the tunes.

Gourmet bites by Heirloom were fresh takes on brunch favorites, including Mini Egg Stratas filled with prosciutto & sun-dried tomato fontina; Brioche French Toast drizzled with blueberry maple syrup, whipped lemon curd and topped with white chocolate flakes; Devilled Eggs with Crab and Fennel; and Harvest Calzones stuffed with roasted butternut squash, goat cheese, sage and pepitas.

It would not be Fall without a little bit of pumpkin, and Heirloom did not disappoint with the Pumpkin Pie Yogurt Parfaits. Other sweets included Banana Oatmeal Brûlée; PB&J & Creme Brûlée Mini Donuts; and macarons in passion fruit, blood orange and other fall flavors by Olivia Macaron

At the cocktail bar, Heirloom’s mixologists served up spiked apple pie cocktails with Bulleit WhiskeyPlum Apple Cider Ginger cocktails and rosemary grapefruit cocktails with Ketel One vodka; and sparkling cava and rosé from Spanish vineyard Juvé y Campos. At the end of the day, guests walked away full and happy, and grabbed swag bags with engraved “Bitch Who Brunches” champagne flutes and other goodies inside.
