Day-after anecdotes

Feeling the wrath of partying too hard on New Year's Eve? Sometimes the best way to cure a hangover is to have another drink.


Generally on New Year's Eve, the ol' "everything in moderation" advice your mama gave you goes out the window, and you'll likely be spending the first day of 2011 paying for it. But you know what they say: The best for a hangover cure is to keep on drinking. If you're going to power through and chase last nights regrets with more booze, take some advice from the experts.

Tom's Little Havana
Steve Cross, the friendly face behind the bar at Tom's, suggests you try his Caesar to cure any rumbling in your guts or blinding headaches. He serves his breakfast-friendly bevvy with a spicy bean and plenty of horseradish. 5428 Doyle Street, 423-8667

The Old Triangle
A pint of Guinness to take the edge off is a standard for bartender Jon Ells, but he also recommends a thirst-quenching red eye (a hearty mix of beer and Clamato juice) or a shandy (three quarters of a pint of Keith's topped up with ginger ale) to ease the day-after tummy troubles. 5136 Prince Street, 492-4900

The Loose Cannon
If you find yourself at The Loose Cannon with a hangover from hell and aren't steered towards the reliable Caesar, the suggestion will likely be a screwdriver (one ounce of vodka in orange juice). Bar staff here agrees that the key is to stick to juice mixes to keep hydrated while knocking them back. 1566 Argyle Street, 407-8797
