Good morning, and happy new year!

Perhaps you've just awakened, groggy-eyed, in need of sustenance and some kind of hangover cure. If so, here are a  few East Bay spots open for brunch on New Year's Eve:

1. Hog's Apothecary (375 40th St., Oakland) is open from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and even takes brunch reservations.

2. Over in Swan's Market, Cosecha (907 Washington St., Oakland) is dishing out menudo, pozole, micheladas, and churros from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

3. In a similar theme, Camino (3917 Grand Ave., Oakland) will be open 11 a.m.–3 p.m. with counter service only, serving pozole ($20–$22), chicharrones ($6), and donuts ($5).

4. Grand Lake Kitchen (576 Grand Ave., Oakland) will serve its regular weekend brunch menu 9 a.m.–3 p.m.

Edited to add: 5. Grease Box (942 Stanford Ave.), serving (gluten-free) brunch 9 a.m.–5 p.m.

That's all I've got, but feel free to add more in the comments if you know of any!
