Who doesn't love brunch? It's perfectly acceptable to have cocktails before 5 p.m., and you can order eggs and hash browns in the afternoon without those condescending "wonder what they did last night" looks. Brunch is a sort of social hall pass that is bestowed upon the hard-working (or hard partying) too infrequently--mostly just on the weekends. Red Feather Lounge makes the most of it, boasting bloody marys with Bakon vodka and pickled chiles, an oatmeal souffle, and eggs Benedict that will leave your taste buds hankering for more. The patio provides unparalleled downtown people watching, and if the bright sun is a little too much after your night out, hole up in one of the low-lit, comfy booths and savor the serenity.
