A good New Year’s Day brunch is a great New Year jumpstart. Although some retail stores are closed, there is activity in Bloomington, Burnsville and, of course, Twin Cities. The Lakers and Timberwolves will be going head to head at Target Center. For laughs, there’s comedy theater. You and your family can wander through Mall of America or get out of a tight situation in Rochester. If planning a restful day at home, it will probably be spent tidying up from the night before.
