Saturday is long gone and you have one, final day to put off Monday’s inevitable arrival. The only way to top off the weekend right is with a #SundayFunday.

We’re not saying that this is the only way to spend your Sunday. We’re also not saying every Sunday should be spent sipping a mimosa or Bloody Mary (or three). But if that’s the direction your day is headed, you might as well do it right.

For the optimal Sunday Funday:

  • If possible, get more sleep than you normally would Saturday night.
  • Gather your favorite group of people.
  • Hydrate (no, drinking a Bloody Mary does not count as hydrating).
  • Prepare yourselves for some adventure.
  • Remember to eat.

If you want to feel even better about yourself during Sunday Funday, go outside and get moving. I love to start a Sunday with a hike, walk or other outdoor activities at Crowders Mountain, Freedom Park or the U.S. National Whitewater Center.

Make it a Sunday Funday for the books at any of these spots in Charlotte, but keep in mind that any Sunday Funday can benefit from a little spontaneity. So, don’t be afraid to hit up multiple places and go wherever the day takes you!

Start at 5Church for a Sunday brunch of epic proportions, whether you go for something small like the avocado toast ($8) or a big ol’ breakfast like the Queens Breakfast ($13). 5Church even offers a mimosa flight ($15), meaning you get to taste four different flavors of bubbly mimosas with your meal. Plus, the restaurant’s trendy interior and energetic atmosphere will get your spirits up as you recover from last night’s festivities.

10 Park Lanes offers a lively atmosphere and a little friendly competition on your Sunday Funday. Beyond bowling, you can also play other games like ping pong, corn hole and bocce ball. If you’re still in recovery mode, we recommend ordering a Bacon Bloody ($8) which is a vodka Bloody Mary topped with bacon and jalapeno stuffed olives.

VBGB will keep your group entertained, full and buzzed for the entirety of your Sunday Funday. From the seemingly endless options for both games and beer to their food and massive patio, VBGB is always a good choice. And while they specialize in local and regional beer, but do also offer a full bar, so you can order whatever “hair of the dog” suits you best.

With a brunch menu that will leave you with a very solid base for your day, Vivace is a suitable place to start off Sunday Funday. Bloody Mary’s and mimosas are $2 each until 3:45pm so Vivace is also a favorable option to stop by after your group has already visited a couple other places. Order the Brussels Sprouts!

This Plaza Midwood staple is consistently packed on Sundays for good reason. They offer $2 Mimosas, $4 Bloody Mary Bar, $5 Tito’s and $2.50 Bud Lights on Sundays, and they boast a stunning view of the Queen City (without having to deal with Uptown parking or prices).

Don’t forget to put yourself to bed at a reasonable hour after your Sunday Funday activities of choice so you show up fresh-faced and ready to go for work in the morning!

  1. I rater them have affordable (under $10) homestyle country breakfasts and open 8:00 am on the weekends. This town could use a few more no frills greasy spoon establishments.
