The Cod may be running out of gas on his crusade to encourage billionaires not to disregard certain denotative conventions, but this pitch from C&B is just weird. A modern brunch? One with indoor plumbing and electricity? Or one where you have to keep an eye on Bertrand Russell? I guess "a brunch w/ table linens and flatware reminiscent of Design Research's golden era, whose steez we have sharked repeatedly" would be kind of a mouthful.
