The “Sunday Funday” craze is sweeping my Twitter stream @tannergonzo —  does that mean “America”? and I honestly have just a small idea of  what it means.

What is Sunday Funday? And is it appropriate for us “adults?” People over 35 years old – is what I mean.

Accordingy to Urban Dictionary there are seven — yes, seven — definitions of “Sunday Funday.” And they all sound less than rough if you go by an adult standard which I defined at 35 years old above.

Sunday Funday starts with Unlimited Champagne Brunch and continues until you pass out in a gutter, on a bar stool, in the bathroom, or face down in the sand.

Activities of the day can include but are not limited to: watching sports games outside, playing sand volleyball, laying in a field of grass, laying face down on the sand volleyball court, beer bongs on the balcony, trying to find a bathroom in a supposedly closed office building when you have too piss so bad l it hurts to move, etc.

Um, what? no thanks. Again I am over 35 years old.

Hoping that my social network was tamer than Urban Dictionary, I turned to Facebook and Twitter to find out what exactly Sunday Funday means.


With over 20 responses, here’s what I can successfully conclude about Sunday Funday:

It happens on Sundays. Glad that’s established, people. You’re a smart bunch.

It involves booze. Sort of a given, considering it involves the word “fun.” Mimosas were recommended, but beer seems to be an acceptable option, as well.

It happens early in the day. We’re all adults here. Going to bed at 9 p.m. has become part of the routine. You start early so you can end early.

Talking about it in any capacity is lame. Well, according to one person at least. “If you say or tweet that you’re having a ‘Sunday Funday,’ then you are clearly NOT having a ‘Sunday Funday,’ he wrote on my Facebook page.

Guess I failed that one last week:

Insert tweet.

Here’s what’s up in the air about Sunday Funday:

Location. Some said a bar. Others advised it must “always” be outside, even if it’s raining (that’s what porches are for, apparently). Outside we say at TannerGonzalez.  What is the point of a weekend if you have no outside adventure?


Food.  We all eat and if you plan a good Sunday Funday.  You eat one big meal.  It should be good and worthy of a credit card charge.  The sun should be up still when you eat.

Some sort of physical activity. I am all about this. Do a race and challenge yourself.   Remember that hustle game?  It’s about balance. You have to stretch yourself.

Given all that, my ideal TannerGonzalez Sunday Funday should involve a huge swim workout at Cherry Creek Athletic Club or a 5 Mile at Washington Park in the morning, followed by breakfast at Caitlins., which leads to me to be passed out by 6 p.m. Oh, and I should never ever tweet about it. Did I get that right?

Either way, according to one Twitter follower, Sunday Funday means “Monday Regrets.” Which makes sense.

That’s TannerGonzalez Sunday Funday.
