When you wake up on New Year's Day, your stream-of-consciousness could sound something like Doge: Wow. Such hangover. Much pain. Need eggs.
Keep this list of Wednesday's holiday brunch specials handy, or take preventative measures by making a reservation.
• Agua 301, the newest addition to the Navy Yard, is debuting its new brunch menu on Jan. 1. Chef Antonio Burrell promises "brothy soups that will take care of hangovers."
• If you really just need to eat a sandwich and go back to bed, grab a carryout hangover picnic from G Sandwich: a ginger beer, kettle chips and a Jersey Mac ham, egg and cheese sandwich for $10.
• Vegans: There's a brunch for you too, at Sticky Fingers, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
• Sometimes, you just want cold pizza after a long night of drinking, and that's where Urbana's New Year's Day brunch comes in. Get a cold margherita pizza and a bloody mary for $10 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. (or you can order off of the regular hot menu, too).
• At the Coupe in Columbia Heights, sample a special New Year's brunch dish: "Bubble and Squeak," a traditional British plate of corned beef, potato and Brussels sprouts for $12. Seems guaranteed to soak up the remaining booze in your system.
• Pearl Dive's Jan. 1 hangover special: $10 for a Shiner Bock and a Dive Burger, a double-patty topped with bacon and pepper-jack.
• You'll find a bloody mary bar at Poste's New Year's Day brunch, beginning at 8 a.m. (Like you'll even be up that early, haha, riiiight.) And at
4 p.m. 12 p.m. they'll switch over to a pig roast, as pork is considered to be a lucky food to start the new year.
