Fun night last night? I checked your Snapchat account. That party looked epic.
Today, though: Today is not as fun. You're starting a whole new year and all you can think about is going back to bed. Take a few of our New Year's Day tips and you'll be back on your feet in a flash.
Black-eyed peas, please
Turn your year around by eating black-eyed peas, believed to be lucky in many households. Greenville Avenue Pizza Company is doing a black-eyed pea-zza: It's an alfredo or marinara pizza topped with mozzarella, black-eyed peas, sausage, bacon and rice.
1923 Greenville Ave., Dallas. gapc.co. The pizza will cost you $17 or $23, depending on size.
Stay home, turn on the tube
Delivery pizza is never more than a phone call away. It has two best friends: Netflix and chill. Some Netflix shows available on Jan. 1:
- How to Change The World documentary. Learn about the people who founded Greenpeace and helped usher in a movement still relevant today. It might get you thinking -- and up off that couch.
- Angry Birds Toons: Season 2. Never mind, back on the couch. It's a holiday, after all.
- Dance Moms: The Collection. It leaves Netflix after Jan. 1, 2016, so now's your time to binge on a show no one will watch with you. We won't tell.
Nobody styles their hair for brunch anymore, so don't let that stop you from leaving the house. Ladies, toss on one of those floppy hats; guys, grab a baseball cap and head out to one of these spots for Dallas' favorite meal, brunch:
At Meso Maya, first things first: sangria. (And lucky you, mimosas, sangria rojas and bloody Marys are $3 each.) Then consider a hearty breakfast such as brisket and scrambled eggs or a sweet one with egg-battered toast, vanilla cream cheese and fruit.
Brunch runs Jan. 1-3, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 1611 McKinney Ave. and 11909 Preston Road, Suite 1426, both in Dallas. mesomaya.com.
Del Frisco's Grille is doing its typical brunch, extended through the holiday weekend. Since you're on vacation (or at least that's what we call a day off of work), go big with the red velvet Belgian waffle or the chicken-fried steak and eggs. They even have a drink named for just this very occasion: It's called the Morning After and it's made with coconut vodka, coconut water, lemon sour and a splash of Sprite.
Brunch runs Jan. 1-3, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Del Frisco's Grilles are located in Dallas (3232 McKinney Ave.); Fort Worth (154 East 3rd Street); Plano (7200 Bishop Road) and Southlake (1200 E. Southlake Blvd.).delfriscosgrille.com.
Drink ... more?
Public School 214, a newish restaurant in Uptown, nearly dares you to keep the party going with its $10 deal on mimosas, bloody Marys and micheladas. For $10, you get "just about bottomless" drinks, which means, y'know, as much as you want, unless you get out of hand and the bartender has to cut you off. Handle yourself, folks. While you're there, do the Dallas thing and brunch on eggs Benedict pizza or chicken sausage and cheddar grits.
3700 McKinney Ave., Suite 148, Dallas. psontap.com/locations/ps214.
Dig for a deal
If you're jonesing for a hearty dinner for not a lot of dollars, East Dallas' Dugg Burger is selling supersized burgers for only 16 cents more. (Why 16 cents? It's 2016.) Customers can order their burger, add toppings for no charge, and then add a second burger patty for just 16 cents.
That meaty meal might stave off a bigger headache tomorrow.
9540 Garland Road, Suite 407, Dallas. duggburger.com.
