Welcome to the day after, when regret runs rampant and the struggle is very much real real. If you've over-indulged, here are a few ways to kick that hangover.

Jonathon's chicken and waffles
Tired of waiting on the sidewalk for the chance to get down on Jonathon's chicken and waffles? You're in luck: Jonathon's recently turned its sister restaurant down the street, Kessler Park Eating House, into Jonathon's Diner, an extension of the wildly popular Oak Cliff brunch spot.

Lucky's Chicken-Fried Steak
Lucky's Cafe regulars swear by the chicken-fried steak, which comes swimming in gravy that's good enough to eat by the bowl-full.

Bolsa's michelada
If you're gonna get down with the hair of the dog, do it right with Bolsa's michelada. Made with mussel-chorizo broth (made with beer, chorizo, onion and peppers), lime juice, Austin's Bloody Revolution bloody mary mix and Big Bend Brewing Co.'s Tejas Clara light lager, this is a sophisticated take on a brunch staple.
