8. Sit at the bar:
A no-brainer for smaller groups of diners who want to avoid the rush and command a bit more attention from their bartender/server. Mosey up to the bar (Cured's got one, Park Social is always an option, Boiler House, Feast all have bars for you to enjoy) and avoid that long wait time. 

9. Branch out: 
Brunch options are plentiful these days. You could get down with some moonshine whipped cream-topped French toast at Mash'd at the Rim, or use complimentary valet services at Rebelle to visit Stefan Bowers and co., or you can go to Nectar Wine Bar & Ale House and take down one of those ridiculous, over-the-top, lobster-tail-decked mimosas ... the point is there's no reason you shouldn't dabble in a variety of brunches. You may find a new mimosa flight to love. 

10. Don't be a dick: 
Just don't. Your server is probably as hungover as you, if not more. Industry folks are usually night owls. Help them help you and realize you're not the only table they're taking care of. 

Happy brunching.
