If you're not all partied out from seeing 2011 off into the abyss, or if you overdid it and want to take some of the edge off, Delaney's New Year's Day Beer Brunch is the place be this January 1. You'll dine on four courses of familiar flavors — like peanut butter pancakes, kielbasa and eggs, and apple cinnamon bread French toast — cooked and paired with various hearty beers. It's a feast perfect for any Sunday morning, but as this one's a holiday, you deserve the treat. Tickets are $45 per person, including tax and tip, and are available via PayPal at delaneystaproom.com, where you'll also find a full menu. Buy your tickets in advance.
