Pounding headache, dry mouth, dizziness — many New Year's celebrants will experience the tell-tale sign of a big night…the dreaded next-day hangover.
And then at some point, they'll decide what to eat.
Following a night of New Year's Eve excess earlier this year, GrubHub diners opted for indulgence dishes more than on a typical Thursday.
On Jan. 1, people were 3,252 percent more likely to order a deep-dish pizza than usual.
Hash browns were the next-biggest gainer on New Year's Day, jumping 290 percent, while eggs Benedict rose 270 percent. Pan cheese pizza and challah French toast also cracked the top-10 list.
