Breakfast Around The World by Iconica Social Club Part II


WHAT: The British Are Coming! The British Are Coming!: Breakfast Around The World by Iconica Social Club Part II
WHEN: November - December. Brunch @ Iconica
WHERE: Iconic Social Club

It's Time to Menu Change!

In Full English

Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the breakfast spread you can order here,
On the third + fourth of November
Through the end of December.
Tucking into brunch never seemed so clear.

So say to your friend, "If you can travel
By land or sea to Iconica this weekend,
Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry-arch
Of the North-Tower-Church, as a signal light, --
[SUB: logical landmark for you + friend]
One if by land, and two if by sea,
And Iconica on the opposite shore will be,
Ready to cook and spread culinary cheer
Through every Pioneer Valley village and farm,
For the country folk to come and eat here.
.
.
.
You know the rest. In the books you have read
How the Full English is more than just bread, --
How there are fried eggs and tomatoes,
Baked beans and potatoes,
Rashers and sausages for those who dare,
Sautéed mushrooms, orange marmalade to pair
Cold-pressed juices dressed in shades of fall
And a Lavender London Fog to complete it all.
.
.
.
For, borne on the night-wind of the Past,
Through all our history, to the last,
The people want Breakfast when they get out of bed!
So, the message is clear, what giveth more freely than a freakin'
Full English spread
Every damn weekend?!
