Nothing sullies a brunch like the double whammy of a stilted atmosphere and overpriced food. Brunch is casual. Brunch is gobbling nutritious grease and sucking down bargain liquor to quell the lingering hangover. The Beachland Ballroom's weekend brunch has it right: delicious food outside the normal fare, and all priced below $10. Then there are the monthly drink specials. Summer in a Glass (house-made ginger vodka, apricot nectar, lime juice, and champagne; $6) is a February favorite — fresh, tart, sweet, and not lacking in booze. Fire one back at 15711 Waterloo Rd. in Collinwood. Brunch hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays; for more info, call 216-383-1124 or visit beachlandballroom.com.
