ROSCOE VILLAGE — The fourth glass of champagne that seemed like such a good idea New Year's Eve is sure to exact its revenge New Year's Day.
Enter the hangover brunch.
While technically there's no such things as a cure for a hangover — short of not indulging in alcohol in the first place — a helping of chicken and waffles couldn't hurt.
A number of eateries are opening Wednesday to offer morning-after cures for revelers paying the head-pounding price for their New Year's Eve over-indulgence.
Kitsch'n on Roscoe, 2005 W. Roscoe St., is serving up its 16th annual Hangover Brunch, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The restaurant's full brunch menu will be available, as well as a full bar. Watch New Year's Day bowl games and earn prizes for showing up in pajamas.
Roll out of bed and head to Angel Food Bakery, 1636 W. Montrose Ave., where brunch runs from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Customers in their PJs will be rewarded with free doughnuts and staff will mix up a Bloody Mary or mimosa for patrons who BYOB.
Rockwell's Neighborhood Grill, 4632 N. Rockwell St., is easing into the day, opening at 11 a.m. for a pajama brunch. On tap: food, football and mimosas.
And then there's Walgreens and CVS, where aspirin is always on the menu.
