July 19th, 2016 –(Atlanta, GA)– Saturdays are so much better when brunch is involved! Of all the stereotypes millennials combat daily–narcissistic, selfie-generation, digitally dependent, entitled– there’s one that we can’t really deny:
Millennials love brunch.
According to an article featured in Time, Millennials spend more time planning for brunch than they do looking for a date. Let’s be honest, can you blame us? Great food, cool convos, even cooler Snapchat filters, and bottomless mimosas outrank looking for a date any day– in my book.
This past Saturday, the creatives behind Intelligently Cool—Intecoo for short— rolled out the red carpet for their network of Influencers at the Millennials Brunch: July edition. This pop-up brunch experience hosts the city’s most influential Millennials, in unique venues across Atlanta. This month’s brunch took place at General Assembly (GA) Atlanta, located in the heart of Ponce City Market.
As guests entered GA, they were greeted by Intecoo team members, and bottomless mimosas. Among professions represented included Designers, Marketers, Realtors, Bloggers, Entrepreneurs, Corporate Carats–I made this word up, but think the gems behind big brands and corporations.. carry on–Entertainers, Authors, Communicators, Community Leaders, and more.
One of the unique elements of The Millennials Brunch is the core mission: creating a culture of collaboration. Guests were able to mix and mingle–organically— with influential leaders behind thriving markets here in Atlanta.
Next, guests were invited to be seated at the table for 40–yes 40. The smell of sweet cinnamon, red peppers and sausage, and fresh salmon captivated guests as they walked to their seats.
Our partner chef for the afternoon, Chef Nilka Hendricks, CEO of Chef’n It Up, presented the menu to guests:
Baked French Toast, served with warm brandy syrup
Potato and Bacon Fritata
Cajun Salmon with butter and wine sauce
Kale Caesar Salad
Mixed Berries & Cream
Assorted Mini Muffins
Menu Created and Printed by Creative Approach
The Millennials Brunch continues to evoke conversation about how we (Millennails) can transform Atlanta by owning our identity as Millennials. The energy was so well-received, one of our guests, Teyonna Ridgeway, published her thoughts on The Huffington Post, check out her article here!
