Hangover brunch sounds a bit juvenile, come to think of it. But let's be honest: if you're staying overnight in Galveston on one of the upcoming Mardi Gras weekends, chances are that you aren't going to be feeling 100% the next morning.
If that sounds like you -- or even if you're just in the mood for a healthy breakfast -- then you won't want to miss the Mardi Gras Brunch served at the stately Hotel Galvez every Sunday throughout February. The gorgeous hotel's beautiful seaside restaurant, Bernardo's, will be serving up a bountiful buffet of Cajun and Creole cuisine alongside regular brunch items, prime rib and fresh seafood each Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
And if you need a little hair of the dog, Bernardo's will also be featuring a Bloody Mary station and complimentary mimosas and champagne. Frankly, nothing perks you up after a long night (hungover or not) like mimosas and coffee. And prime rib probably wouldn't hurt, either.
Brunch is $35 per person and reservations are strongly recommended.
