Hair of the Dog 2014: Six Places to Find Brunch on New Year's Day
South Floridians are known for their penchant for drinking.
We mean, do you know of any other cities with Liquordale as a nickname?
Even so, some days -- or evenings -- are known for reducing regular residents and professionals into frat boy-like antics.
New Year's Eve is one of said occasions.
With the gallons upon gallons of cheap sparkling wine that is going to be consumed by otherwise responsible adults, you know January 1 is going to be a day full of headaches and sore stomachs. Some hair of the dog will help those ailments.
We complied a list of six places serving brunch -- and drinks -- on New Year's Day.
