Fort Myers Miracle Hosting All-You-Can-Eat Sunday Brunch to Close out Regular Season
FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Fort Myers Miracle have hopped aboard the Sunday brunch trend with an all-you-can-eat buffet featuring one item no restaurant in town can offer - ballpark seats overlooking a live professional baseball game.
"We had a soft opening in early August for our first Sunday Brunch, and got a great response from our fans," said Chris Peters, the Miracle's president and general manager. "More than 200 people turned out that day for brunch and their comments were overwhelmingly positive, so we're bringing it back again this weekend."
Brunch begins at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 1 on the Sky Deck at Hammond Stadium. The cost is $10 per person. First pitch for the Miracle game is 11 a.m. against the Clearwater Threshers.
The Miracle's culinary team will be preparing a variety of entrées and side dishes, including scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, corned beef hash, fiesta potatoes, biscuits and gravy, pastries, breakfast pizza, egg and cheese burritos, fruit juices and coffee. In addition, attendees will enjoy sweet selections like fresh fruit, cake, pie and cookies.
