Wondering what to gift the brunch-lover on your Christmas list? We've got an idea: Presale starts today for the 2019 edition of the Morning After, a Dallas Observer brunch festival taking over the Dallas Farmers Market from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9.

A $30 presale ticket gets you bottomless brunch bites from some of Dallas' top bruncheries, along with three drink tickets for bars serving Champagne, beer and brunch cocktails.

For serious brunch aficionados, a $60 ticket gets you into the event 30 minutes early, a welcome drink upon entry and six drink tickets, along with access to a VIP lounge, private bar and VIP-specific brunch bites. The 2019 event will feature more restaurants, including Hide, Start and Jenevein's, and shorter lines due to an increased number of bars and bartenders.

Who's serving these bites, you ask? Check out a list of the Dallas restaurants that have already signed on for this year's fest:

Arepa TX
City Council
Cook Hall at W Dallas
Dandelion Cheesecakes
Dot's Hop House & Cocktail Courtyard
Fresh Art Foodie
Go Loco Street Tacos & Burritos
House of Blues
Local Tap & Table
Meso Maya
