The Brunch That Got Away...

Youngblood's regret brunch.

FIVE brand new plays, plus a brunch buffet of pancakes, eggs, bacon, pastries and fruit!  And our morally reprehensible, fiscally indefensible OPEN BAR!

To quote American poets The Butthole Surfers:

"Daddy, what does regret mean?
Well son, the funny thing about regret is,
It's better to regret something you have done,
Than to regret something you haven't done."

With the passing of the old year and the arrival of the new, it's time to look back on everything that we might have done differently.
