Weekend Brunch at Arte Cafe, The Haab, Clinton St. Baking Co., and Studio Square
If you're hungover after a night of love -- or a night of talking about the futility of love -- don't sleep in too long. Plenty of places will be offering some hearty brunch specials to remind you there are 364 days of the year to find happiness. Here are a few of our top choices for the morning-after mimosa.

Arte Cafe, 106 West 73rd Street, Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m.
If you're willing to part with $18, unlimited mimosas, strawberry sangria, and a few other midday cocktails can be yours. Pair your drink to a variety of pastas, omelettes, sandwiches, and classic breakfast dishes. You can walk off your food coma at nearby Central Park, where the landscape can cure most hangover issues.
The Haab, 47-22 48th Avenue, Queens, Saturday and Sunday, 6 a.m./7 p.m.
Fans of a heartfelt Mexican breakfast should check out this Woodside joint, where almost all entrees are under $10. South of the border specialties like chilaquiles, quesadillas, and tortas are all available, with plenty of cheap egg sandwiches, too.

Clinton St. Baking Co., 4 Clinton Street, Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m.
Arrive early for this 32-seat escape from the cold, as lines start as soon as the door opens and remain long until late afternoon. Brunch cocktails might help your patience. And by the way, February is pancake month here, which means the spot features a different flavored pancake -- like crunchy bananas and cinnamon-chili chocolate sauce -- every weekday. Why are we taunting you with this in a brunch post? Because many of you have Monday off this weekend, which means you can get in on the action without missing a day of work. Check out the lineup.
Not So Boujie Hip Hop Brunch with Jadakiss, Studio Square, 35-33 36 Street, Queens Sunday, 1:30 a.m.
If you're a night owl -- and love old school hip hop -- Jadakiss might be the perfect hangover remedy this weekend. The hip hop artist will be live and ready to excite anyone who is still awake at the massive venue in the wee hours of the morning (or late hours of the night, depending on how you look at it). Tickets start at $50.
