New Year's Eve can take a lot out of a person, what with all the champagne-popping, noisemaker squealing and general amateur drinking shenanigans. As such, New Year's Day often becomes a day of recovery. We say, get right back in the saddle with a little discounted hair of the dog.
D'Amico and Sons

Nothing cures a wine hangover like more wine (maybe). So after a night of carousing, slump into a seat at this Italian eatery and enjoy a bottomless glass (all day every day). We can’t promise that this won’t result in the worst headache of all time, but it sounds fun, right?
Spring Street Tavern
355 NE. Monroe St., Mpls. • 612-627-9123 • www. springstreettavern.com
This Nordeast pub is happy to help you start 2013 off on the right foot. Stop by between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. for a rejuvenating build-your-own-Bloody Mary bar for $5.75, which pairs nicely with its weekend brunch menu (available New Year's Day). Given Spring Street's frill-less atmosphere, no one should call you out on your train-wreck visage.
Crooked Pint Ale House
501 Washington Av. S., Mpls. • 612-877-6900 • www.crookedpint.com
OK, this one's not for the queasy-stomached. But if NYE left you particularly haggard, try freshening up with a piney Tanqueray tonic for $4 all day (every Tuesday). Beware, boozehound beginners: This slope is mighty slippery, and blacking out on the first day of the year just seems depressing.
