    Drop Some Money On A Fancy Brunch

    From Redditor u/Unclassified1:

    Sunday booze brunch. I like Essex on the LES [Lower East Side]. Alternatively, if your budget allows for it, brunch at the Waldorf Astoria. It's $125 per person, not including drinks, but does have incredible seafood, black caviar, made-to-order baked Alaska, etc.

    If you do Essex brunch, continue your drunk afternoon with a tour of the LES. Economy Candy, Pickle Guys, Doughnut Plant, etc.
