Ring in 2016 — and celebrate National Bloody Mary Day — with some creative Bloody Mary's at Hash Kitchen in Scottsdale. For $10, you'll have access to the restaurant's DIY Bloody Mary bar at which you can top house-infused vodka (think flavors like bacon, pickle, cilantro lime and jalapeño) and tomato juice with brunch options including mini cheeseburger sliders, pickled eggs, egg rolls, corn dogs, spicy asparagus, beer-battered onion rings, corn dogs, oysters and king crab.

Sunday Brunch at Barrio Urbano

If Bloody Mary's aren't your thing, try a make-your-own Mimosa instead. Because, after all, there's nothing like a little Champagne to kick start 2016 off right. Barrio Urbano's Sunday Brunch features $9 bottles of Champagne that you can split with your pals. Or enjoy $4 Bloody Mary's or margaritas. Drink specials are available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Breakfast is served all day. You can reserve a table by calling 602-287-9000. Barrio Urbano is located at 5632 N 7th St. in Phoenix.

We know the struggle. Your guests have been in town since Christmas Eve and you're running out of ideas about where to take them. You've dragged them up Camelback Mountain and stuffed them with homemade Christmas cuisine — now it's time to take them on a tour of metro Phoenix's best fare. We suggest taking the in-laws to either of world-famous Pizzeria Bianco locations, followed by a cocktail at one of the Valley's newest drinking hot spots, Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour. Not dealing with mixology fans? No problem, try Four Peaks Brewing Company in Tempe and dessert at Sweet Republic in Scottsdale or Phoenix.
