Brunch is the most amusing meal of the weekend, but it also has a higher calling. The mid-morning meal was invented by English writer Guy Beringer with one purpose: to cure a hangover. (People really knew how to party in the late 1800s). Since its invention, brunch has gotten another name, Sunday Recovery, and in cities around the world, people have become faithful fans of their own particular culinary cures. This Sunday, December 8, they'll have another choice in Denver: the Matt Foodie Call Catering Company will offer a pop-up contender.
