Every city is known for something noteworthy. New York is the city that never sleeps. Chicago is recognized for its wind and the hot air blown from the traps of its politicians. Vegas is known for nothing happening. Austin is just weird. Fort Liquordale is known for drinking.
Given the reputation for debauchery, it would make sense that we could have plenty of options for boozy brunches on a Sunday morning.
To help you cure your atrocious case of brown bottle flu, the Dubliner Fort Lauderdale is starting an Irish brunch this Sunday, and to get it going, it's giving away some free brunch.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Himmarshee Irish spot will offer $15 bottomless bloody marys and mimosas as well as a number of hearty and healthy brunch options.
From substantial hangover cures like steak 'n' eggs ($12.95, with a six-ounce NY strip, two free-range eggs, home fries, and toast), brioche French toast with house-made Jameson maple syrup; and Benedict options such as country ham ($8.95), florentine ($8.95), or gravlax ($9.95) to diet-friendly options such as steel-cut oatmeal ($5.95) and the Healthy Choice ($8.95) with fresh fruit, almond and walnut granola, and organic yogurt, there are choices aplenty.
"There really aren't many breakfast options in the area," said executive chef Greg Schiff. "We really want to tap into that market, and we think we could put out a superior-quality product to match what's out there."
In keeping with the downtown party vibe, the brunch is going to be more of a social event than just a breakfast spot. Although the exact format is still being hashed out, there will be a DJ onsite every week.
To kick off the event, the Dubliner will give away brunch to the first 100 guests this Sunday.
The Dubliner is located at 210 SW Second St. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-523-1213, or visit dublinerfortlauderdale.com.
