Weekend brunch buzz 10/11-10/12

45,000 Chicago Marathon runners can’t be wrong: no brunch for you! If you do manage to bypass the masses, go get gluttonous at these brunch spots:

Well, whaddya know? It’s a restaurant in Lincoln Park that is not on the war path and also manages to be healthy enough to make you feel slightly less guilty that you decided to stuff your face instead of running 26 miles! Karyn’s Raw is offering a raw vegan brunch buffet on Sunday, Oct. 12 for $29.99 from 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Karyn’s Raw is located at 1901 N. Halsted St. in Lincoln Park. For more information, call 312.255.1590.

For the unconventional brunch goer on the North Side, Viceroy of India features a buffet daily from 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. for $11.95. Expect more savories than sweets, and probably no French Toast. Or, if you have no one to eat with and/or had a falling out with your best friend and need a quick replacement, wait a week and join the Chicago Brunch Club Meetup group (not affiliated with Chicago Brunch Blog) when they dine at Viceroy on Oct. 18. Viceroy of India is located at 2520 W. Devon Ave. in the Little India neighborhood. For information, call 773.743.4100.

Screw the race and toss back a drink or three at the Blue Line Club Car‘s weekly Hangover Brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.. Bloody Marys can’t get cheaper at $3, which means your hangover won’t get any worse. Blue Line Club Car is located at 1548 N. Damen Ave. in Wicker Park. For more information, call 773.395.3700.

Unless you live in the neighborhood or have some reason to be there, I know Avondale isn’t really the top of the brunch dining destinations. However, Orbit Room‘s Sunday brunch entrees like coconut-dipped French Toast and crab cake benedicts, combined with $5 Mimosas and Bloody Marys and $2 Point Lite Bottles might be worth the trip. The retro-themed bar and grill features brunch on Sundays from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Orbit Room is located at 2959 N. California Ave. in Avondale. For more information, call 773.588.8540.
