New Weekly Sunday Brunch Kicking Off with Mermaid Flair


Visitors to the Center on Sept.11 with have another chance to purchase a raffle ticket for this beautiful quilt depicting the dawn of a new day and the hope it inspires. The piece includes two "hidden" mermaids embedded in the quilting. The winner of the raffle will be announced at the Mermaid Splash on Sept. 17.

The Price Center’s 1st Sunday Brunch Buffet on Aug. 7 was such a resounding success its creators have decided to take it weekly beginning Sept. 11, which is also the 2nd day of Mermaid Week so the Buffet will feature mermaid-inspired menu items, including a seafood entrée and mermaid-inspired artwork on the walls of the Tea Room.

Nearly 100 people stopped in to the Center’s Tea Room during its debut on Aug. 7 to check out the new offering. Chef Ray Abiza, formerly of Euro Café, created a buffet spread that included crepes, eggs, rustic potatoes, custom omelets, and a delicious assortment of European-inspired entrees including a seafood creole, three fresh salads, coffee, tea and juice.

“Based on reservations and our estimates, we had only expected about 40 – 50 people,” said Clay DeStefano executive director. “Thankfully, that’s the beauty of having such an experienced chef in-house. Chef Ray jumped in and made more of everything,” he added.

The new weekly Sunday Brunch Buffet will feature similar, but different items each week from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Cost is $14.95 per person and reservations are required.

The San Marcos Cinema Club will be hosting three separate Mermaid Week events at the Center that day, including two different documentary showings and a talk on the myths, legends and lore of Mermaids.
