Kansas City culinary mainstay The Brick (1727 McGee, 816-421-1634) is both the cause of and the solution to area hangovers this first bright morn of 2008, opening at 11 a.m. for the eighth-annual Hair of the Dog Day. Treat such symptoms as headache, nausea, hypersalivation and impaired cognition with $1 Bloody Mary specials, all-day comfort-food specials — including meat loaf and fried chicken — and an array of movies. Day-shift bartender Shay Estes says, "We're showing movies. You come in your jammies. You have Bloody Marys. We'll probably show funny movies. People like to laugh when they're hung-over. It's usually really laid-back."
