When it comes to taking the edge off a hangover, beers work every time -- and Bloody Marys are even better. THE EARL's weekly "Dunch" has plenty of both. Sundays noon-3:45 p.m., the East Atlanta club serves up a brunch menu that shames most breakfast-centric restaurants. The biscuits and gravy are so loaded with sausage and pureed lard, you can feel your headache shrink as your arteries constrict. And 1-4 p.m., live acoustic music contributes to the soothing atmosphere. Go online to vote for your favorite Dunchling (aka waitress; in some naughty circles they're called waif-tresses -- it's an Earl thing).
