Psychic Brunch: Do They Know Your Order in Advance?

2007_07_23_tarot.jpgIf you’re interested in learning more about what the future holds for you, but feel that clairvoyance is not something to be attempted on an empty stomach, Psychic Brunch may be just what you’ve been looking for.
Psychic Brunch first took place in 2003. Since then, it’s become a twice monthly event where what the Psychic Brunch MySpace calls “a small but seasoned, dedicated team of psychics and healers” gather to help clients “mold happier lives.” They also have donated hundreds of dollars worth of profits to the Toronto Humane Society.
The Psychic Brunch team includes two tarot readers, a clairvoyant, an empath and an “energy reader.” For the skeptics among you who are worried about giving your money to a bunch of Ms. Cleo-esque phone psychic hacks, you should be somewhat appeased by the fact every psychic there has passed this rigorous, albeit slightly creepy, application form.
The brunch portion of Psychic Brunch is taken care of by alternately Big Mamma’s Boy or The Old Nick. Both spots have an organic brunch menu complete with vegetarian options. All Psychic Brunch guests also have their pick of gifts from the Psychic Brunch gift table. Presumably the psychics already know what you’re going to take.
Even if you think psychics are complete hokum, they are entertaining hokum. And everything goes down better when accompanied by Eggs Florentine and a Caesar. Besides, aren’t you at least a little curious as to what an energy reader actually does?
Psychic Brunch takes place on the second Sunday of the month at the Old Nick (123 Danforth Avenue) from 2 p.m.–6 p.m. and on the last Sunday of the month at Big Mammas Boy (554 Parliament Street) from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Admission, including food, gift, and psychic reading, is $35. The next brunch is at Big Mamma’s Boy on Sunday, July 29, 2007. Image taken from Wikimedia Commons.
