Planning to begin the year as you mean to go on? That doesn't just mean having a great time when the clock strikes midnight. Come morning on January 1, it also means having a splendid — read: not seedy or sleeping — start to the day. Two words: cocktail brunch.
Whether you roll out of bed to get there, or don't make it to snooze town to begin with, make a very important date with Victoria Park. From 9am until 11am, they're serving up beverages with mid-morning meals, all for $25.
That price will get you one of each on the Bistro Terrace, while overlooking the city. Food choices include croissants with ham, chutney and eggs; waffles with mangoes, strawberries and vanilla bean ice cream; and Mt Cotton mushrooms with baba ganoush. When it comes to tipples, there'll be Bloody Marys, peach bellinis, froze with French orange liqueur and more. And if you're in need of a bigger hair o' the dog boost, extra glasses are $12 — or share a jug for $22.
