First Sunday Brunch- Holman’s Bar & Grill

LKA no-host Sunday brunch will be held at Holman’s Bar & Grill in the Buckman neighborhood. On Saturday and Sunday mornings Holman’s presents Portland’s Original Bloody Mary Bar, where you get the unique opportunity to customize your own Bloody Mary by adding ingredients from our selection of over 100 mixes, hot sauces and fresh garnishes. (Because hangovers deserve creativity too!)

Also, don’t forget to take part in what is perhaps our most popular feature: Holman’s famous “Meal Wheel” on which we have had more than 17,000 winners! After enjoying your meal, just give the wheel a spin and if you match up the two Red Arrows… your food is FREE!
