Right now, we’re seeing rain on the horizon. Sunday’s weather forecast is calling for a delicious brunch followed by a movie. Tons of great summer flicks out right now ranging from Minions for the kid in you or Jurassic World for the Chris Pratt lover in you. And may we suggest Pounds & Ounces in Chelsea for brunch? We loved the breakfast pizza and playful take on chicken and waffles, not to mention there’s a cheap bottomless option. Check out our review here.
