Brunch is quickly becoming a 'Burgh thing.

Weekends are for hitting the snooze bar and taking one's time with and relaxing over meals.

Juggling a to-go coffee mug in one hand and a banana or bagel in the other is so Monday through Friday.

Billed in a news release as an “all-out brunch extravaganza,” the event will include brunch favorites and some new offerings. Beer mimosas, anyone?

Brunchers can enjoy coffee, juice, breakfast burritos, doughnuts, biscuits and more from a variety of Pittsburgh's restaurants and food trucks.

Tickets to this 21-and-over event are $25 and include a swag bag, beer mimosa, access to food vendors, coffee tastings and samples and live music.

Food vendors include Wise County Biscuits, Pittsburgh Juice Co., Pittsburgh Sandwich Society, Paul Family Farms, Pittsburgh Burrito Bus (breakfast burritos), breakfast pizza and doughnuts.
