May 8th is Mother’s Day. Celebrate the ladies in your life with brunch or lunch at Creekside. We’ll be serving complimentary Mimosas (“Momosas”) to all the moms and a rose for all their efforts. Like “animal fries” at In & Out, Creekside still has our Brunch pizzas available off-menu daily, topped with bacon, potatoes and sunny-side up eggs, hollandaise sauce optional. Of course, the Sweet Heart Salad is always a popular brunch option, and our Heart of Marin or Victory Garden pizzas are a great way to say Happy Mother’s Day. Momosas served from 11 AM to 4PM with any indoor dining meal.
What’s Brunch? Good question. According to the Internet:
- Brunch is a category of meal that usually is eaten between 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The meal is occasionally accompanied with some form of alcoholic drink as an accompaniment. The word brunch is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch – Wikipediea
- Brunch on Sunday? What a great idea; why would you want to sleep in on a Sunday when you can go out for brunch and pay $52 eggs – Bill Burr
What is a Portmanteau?
- a large suitcase
- a word or morpheme whose form and meaning are derived from a blending of two or more distinct forms (such as Smog from smoke and fog, Brunch from breakfast and lunch, or Linner from lunch and dinner) – Websters.com
…and yes, Morphemes are the indivisible basic units of language, much like the atoms which physicists once assumed were the indivisible units of matter. English speakers borrowed morpheme from French morphème, which was itself created from the Greek root morphē, meaning “form.” The French borrowed –ème from their word phonème, which, like English phoneme, means “the smallest unit of speech that can be used to make one word different from another word.” The French suffix and its English equivalent -eme are used to create words that refer to distinctive units of language structure. Words formed from -eme include lexeme (“a meaningful linguistic unit that is an item in the vocabulary of a language”), grapheme (“a unit of a writing system”), and toneme (“a unit of intonation in a language in which variations in tone distinguish meaning”). – Merriam Webster
