On Sunday morning we rolled out of bed and went to church… kind of. Rather than heading to a house of worship, we went to the House of Blues. And rather than listening to hymns while taking communion, we listened to gospel music while eating brunch! So it was very similar to church, but had the added bonus of including mimosas!
The House of Blues is a Chicago institution, offering concerts for nearly every music genre imaginable. In fact, if you can think of an artist, odds are they’ve performed at the House of Blues!
Sundays are particularly special, because not only can you listen to great music, but you can also enjoy a boozy brunch while doing it!
And it’s certainly a stunning venue for brunch, wouldn’t you say?
Let’s talk about the food first.
Gospel Brunch is served buffet style, so you can eat as much as you want and choose whatever looks good to you. While there were plenty of healthy food options, we decided to treat ourselves to comfort food.
Not surprisingly, I’m a big fan of brunches that include mac and cheese!
And Greg loved the southern fare, like chicken and waffles and biscuits and gravy.
But the best part about the brunch is obviously the live gospel music. Local choirs perform seasonal songs and gospel favorites, and before you know it you’ll be dancing in your seat, singing and waiving your napkin in the air!
It’s a lot of fun, and really energizes you for the day.
See what I mean!

There’s no better way to spend your Sunday… besides actually going to church, of course!
