For all the terrible things 2020’s given us, at least we can now get breakfast sandwiches dropped to us in buckets from apartment balconies. Seriously. Calabama is a weekend-only pop-up that operates out of an apartment in East Hollywood where the pick-up system literally involves a bucket drop from a top-floor fire escape. It’s a thrillingly hilarious experience, but make no mistake, the reason you’re really here is the tremendous breakfast sandwich. Stuffed with fluffy eggs, bacon, and avocado, it’s basically the world’s greatest breakfast grilled cheese - and that’s a superlative that should get absolutely everyone out of bed on a Sunday morning. Also, the chef makes her own excellent hot sauce that’s available by the bottle as well. Tip: Get some, that and then follow their Instagram for all the latest details.
