Mother and Child Reunion at Meddlesome Moth
New Year's Eve can be a pain if you're stuck with the wrong crowd. No one can figure out where to go, everyone is whiny about staying in, that one guy gets too drunk again this year and starts moaning about never having anyone to kiss at midnight. It's the heavyweight champion of frustrating nights out. But New Year's Day brunch, whether in the morning or late afternoon, is the redeemer of terrible nights out.

Most restaurants refrain from offering brunch until the weekend, because really what respectable adult has the time for bottomless bloodies on a Wednesday morning? If you're hoping to start 2014 off with a hangover-curing eggs benedict, then you're in luck, because we found five restaurants that are offering brunch this Wednesday.

Meddlesome Moth
The Moth will be heralding the New Year with its poached egg-fried chicken-jalapeno gravy concoction (pictured above) and its bacon waffles with caramel apple compote. Also? Beer and cocktails galore in case your resolution is to spend fewer hours sober this year than last.

Bread Winners Cafe and Bakery
The winner of the Observer's Best Brunch 2013 knows to play to its strengths, which include cinnamon-raisin French toast and bacon bloody marys.

It's not on the brunch menu, but seriously look at Malai's coconut cream pie.
Malai Thai Vietnamese Kitchen
Most people don't think of South Asian flavors when they think of brunch, but the tyranny of hash browns needs to come to an end. Malai offers twists like bahn mi French toast and "over easy" fried rice topped with a fried egg.

The Libertine Bar
Half-priced Tuesdays may be as dead as Jacob Marley, but the Libertine is using that as an excuse to focus on turning out even better food than ever before. This is your chance to put their money where their mouth is (or rather your money and your mouth), and it offers the perfect chance to segue from night drinking to brunch to afternoon drinking.

Damn good corn.
Blue Mesa Grill
Tex-Mex can be a terrible idea sometimes, but brunch does not have to be one of those times. Blue Mesa's chicken and mushroom enchiladas, for example, or the tamale-esque black bean adobe pie have miraculous hangover-curing properties. Utilitarian Tex-Mex is the best Tex-Mex.

My recommendation is to get OUT of Dallas, so you don't smother your soul.  I mean come on, what's more fun than sitting in Dallas on New Years Day, on the back end of a bender?  Ya'll get out and walk, maybe build a pit fire, throw some steaks on said fire.......go hiking or kayaking!? Leave the "brah's" and "dude's" and spiky hair, and make way for souls searching and reflection.......the Tollway, lame ass patios, and dumpy fast food haunts will still be here when you get back!!!


The Kerg's Best Quick Trips from Dallas:


-Turner Falls/Davis, OK (2 hrs. from Big D)-Enjoy the Arbuckles, stay clear of the Fried Pies place; it's disgusting!  Take a 7 mile jaunt to Sulphur and enjoy Travertine Creek, and it's unique waterfalls. The new Artesian Hotel is amazing!


-The Kiamichi Wilderness OK. (2 Hrs from Big D.)-Enjoy primitive roads, and zero facilities....it's awesome. West of the iNdian Turnpike you see bigger hills, and Black Bears. 


-Arklahoma (2 to 4 hrs.)-The mountains that straddled the OK/Ark border are incredible; enjoy the Quachita's, The Boston MNts, Potato Hills..........drive up thruough Mena, Ark. (Talimena Drive) and enjoy elevations of 2500 feet, black bears and TONS of winding roads.  Eat at the gas station at the base of Rich Mountain, say hi to Steve for me! And don't forget Beavers Bend, Girls Gone Wine and Grateful Head Pizza in and around Idabel OK. 


-Caddo Lake (3 hours)-Check out the ghost town that is the former Munitions plant, and of course, the great lake. 


-Dinosaur Valley SP (2 hrs.)-Dinosaur tracks, Beautiful Paluxy River. 


-Mineral Wells (2 hrs.)


-Witchita Mnts. (2 to 3 hrs)-Mount Scott has an elevation of 2600 feet.....great vista; watch out for wandering Longhorn cattle.


ps-I have others, but, I don't want to see ya'll while I'm hiking. 


-Honobia?


-Pine Creek Lake, OK.?


-Ozarks?
