On Feb. 9, we celebrate the only meal of the day that matters: brunch. The Morning After, an annual Dallas Observer food fest celebrating the best in brunch food and booze, is once again taking over the Dallas Farmers Market, and this year's lineup is pretty stacked.
Check out the restaurants that have signed on so far:

More restaurants will join the list over the coming weeks, too. If you haven't snagged tickets yet, now's a good time: on Monday, Jan. 7, ticket prices increase from $30 (general admission) to $40 and from $60 (VIP) to $70. General admission gets you unlimited brunch dish samples and cocktail samples (three drink tickets to use at bars, with more available for purchase). VIP admission means you get into the event at 11 a.m., 30 minutes early, along with a welcome beverage upon entry, six drink tickets and access to the VIP lounge with special bites from Mot Hai Ba, which recently took No. 3 on our list of Dallas' Top 100 Restaurants.
Find more info at the Morning After's website and grab tickets before prices go up. Last year, we discovered bacon-fat breakfast fried rice and the joy of eating a piece of French toast topped with ham.
The Morning After, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9 at Dallas Farmers Market, 920 S. Harwood St.
