Tell Us Your Hangover Cure and Become Famous!

Posted By on Fri, Sep 7, 2012 at 12:35 PM

...famous on this blog, at least.

Things got a little wild last night at the Savoy Tivoli during the sendoff party for SF Weekly's former managing editor Alan Scherstuhl (he's moving to NYC to become film editor for all Village Voice publications -- go Alan!). I'm paying for my sins today (including a midnight scarf-down of super-garlicky clam pizza at Golden Boy, always a good call!) and applying one of my usual remedies: a breakfast burrito.

For years I've subscribed to some magical thinking that the starch in the potatoes, the protein from the eggs, and the fat from the cheese and bacon will form together in my stomach to create a hangover-destroying supergroup, and it often does the trick. If it weren't a weekday, I'd probably be chasing it with a bloody Mary or light beer -- though just one, because the worst thing for your hangover is getting drunk again.

But everyone has their own tried-and-true remedies. I'm curious: What's your best hangover cure?

Leave a comment and I'll compile 'em all into a big post next week if I get enough answers. Note: Anyone who answers "not drinking too much in the first place" is automatically disqualified.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
