What will you be doing New Year's Eve? Checking out the incredible lineup of acts and fun at First Night Boston? Living large at a swanky soiree? Rockin' in 2014 with Dick Clark proxy Ryan Seacrest in front of a TV? However you celebrate, don't forget about the day after the night before.

After all of the hoopla, how about chilling out (and, perhaps pigging out) at a New Year's Day brunch? Your New Year's resolution to start a diet could wait one more day, right? Besides, you will have burned some calories hoofing it around the city to First Night venues or dancing the night away to rockin' music.
