There’s no better way to start a day or a new year, then with brunch. We’ve rounded up some brunch spots for New Years Eve and New Years brunch specials.
PS if you had too much champagne, some spots are even offering Pedialyte Cocktails. I don’t know if this is a win or disgusting, but atleast it can be a conversation starter other than what you did last night.
