Dallas' Five Best Hangover Cures

The problem with writing this story is that I'm actually, and colossally, hungover, and blogging about cures instead of implementing them is a strange sort of torture I'm not sure I've ever endured. One thing's for sure: As soon as I hit the publish button I'm going to go get some grease.

You know the feeling. Too many So-Co limes last night? Maybe you gave up Budweiser in favor of some boozy Belgian brews for an evening and ended up tanked. Whether ushered in by a bachelor party, office event, poker game or your own lack of self-restraint, being hungover is terrible. The throbbing temples. The nausea. Your palate lacquered over with cigarettes and whiskey residuals.

These are City of Ate's five favorite remedies, including our recent Best of Dallas winners for Best Hangover Cure. Grab yourself a Bloody Mary and get to work. Get more of Dallas' best with our Best Of app, available for the Droid and the iPhone.

5. Victor Tango's Chicken and Waffles (pictured above) Who orders waffles plain when they're hungover? I'll take mine topped with fried chicken and a pint or two of sausage gravy. VT's dish may be small, but the restaurant has a full bar. Supplement with hair from the dog as necessary.
