dineL.A. PARTNERS WITH FXX AND SEVEN RESTAURANTS TO HOST SUNDAY FUNDAY BRUNCH ON AUGUST 30TH
One-Day Brunch Bonanza Will Kick-Off the Second Season of You're the Worst
"Sunday Funday better than a Monday... "
Los Angeles, CA (August 24, 2015) - dineL.A., the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board's program that produces the city's biannual Restaurant Week, has partnered with FXX and seven restaurant hotspots, including Love & Salt, Plan Check Kitchen + Bar, and The Church Key, to offer $25 brunch specials on Sunday, August 30th. The one-day-only Sunday Funday event will celebrate the season two premiere of FXX's critically-acclaimed hit show You'r e the Worst , an offbeat modern comedy that looks at love and happiness in the City of Angels where brunch - an L.A. institution - often makes a cameo. You're the Worst returns for its second season on Wednesday, September 9, at 10:30PM ET/PT.
"As the characters in You're the Worst will hilariously tell you, 'Sunday' and 'brunch' have pretty much become synonymous in this town," said Stacey Sun, Director of dineL.A. "With so many restaurants upping their weekend brunch game, this is a perfect way to showcase all the great reasons to get out of bed on Sunday and have some fun."
Guests can look forward to selecting one entrée and one side or dessert from each restaurant's brunch menu, plus a bottomless (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) beverage, for $25. Participants across the city include:
