Brunch is a relaxed version of breakfast, just as being a professional juggler is a relaxed version of having a career. Take it easy with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $19 for a Sunday brunch buffet for two (a $39.90 value)
- $38 for a Sunday brunch buffet for four (a $79.80 value)
Served on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the brunch buffet showcases entrees of pecan french-toast casserole and chicken enchiladas, as well as eggs benedict and a scrambled-egg bar. Sides range from biscuits and gravy to assorted muffins. This Groupon does not cover drinks, but for a $3 fee, guests can bring their own champagne and Gather McKinney will provide the orange juice to make mimosas.
On the Gather McKinney website, mother-daughter pair Jennifer Klassen and Crystal Bryant claim to "know no strangers." That's because everyone who steps into Gather McKinney—the pair's event venue—becomes part of the celebration. The space has hosted weddings, receptions, and showers, all with the help of a trained staff that plans as many or as few details as the client needs. They can handle everything from the ceremony to the seating arrangements, or simply find the right flowers to suit a color scheme. Outside of matrimony, Gather McKinney uses almost any excuse to throw a party, including corporate networking meetings, bar mitzvahs, and festivities for traditional and obscure holidays alike.
Though the space's decor can be customized, Gather most often features a mix of rustic and Victorian aesthetics. Inside, an exposed brick wall meets an embossed tin ceiling, which glitters with Swarovski crystal chandeliers. Plants sprout from Roman-style urns or sport Christmas lights. Even the smallest touches demand hands-on attention, such as the twine wrapped around the silverware sets.
The silverware is far more than a decoration, however. Guests make good use of their forks for each meal, when Mexican, Italian, or down-home dinner entrees grace the tables. Gather also serves homemade lunch every Thursday through Saturday, where the sandwich selection includes a pastrami reuben and the Monte Crispo—turkey breast and gouda cheese between jalapeño cornbread, dipped in egg batter and flash-fried. On Sundays, there's a BYOB brunch buffet with a scrambled-egg bar and pecan french-toast casserole.
