If the “hair of the dog” hangover cure doesn’t appeal to you the morning after, no worries, you can just jump on board the Hangover Heaven bus–a new “after-party bus” that promises to cure your hangover in 45 minutes–without making you down another beer with your eggs. It’s a sure-fire way to appeal to those of us who have sworn “never again” after a few too many–or is it?
Created by Dr. Jason Burke, a board certified anesthesiologist who we can only surmise experienced one too many hangovers himself, the Hangover Heaven bus claims they can cure 95% of those nasty throbbing headaches and overall feelings of malaise in just 45 minutes. Burke, who calls himself the first “hangover specialist” even says patients will feel relief in just 20. How? Through a special cocktail of IV hydration and anti-inflammatory drugs. Of course!
The bus, which has two lounge areas and six bunks, travels up and down the Las Vegas Strip, stopping at popular hotels to pick up patients. There are three different kinds of treatments you can get: salvation, redemption and in-room treatment.
Salvation or “the holy grail” will set you back $200 and includes the IV hydration, anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory medications and vitamin supplementation. Meanwhile, the redemption treatment runs $130 and includes just the intravenous hydration to flush that poisonous alcohol from your system.
And if you’re just too hungover to even make it out of your hotel room, you can opt for the in-room service for a mere $500 for yourself and $375 for your drinking buddy.
Hangover Heaven launches this weekend in Las Vegas and promises to be coming to a city near you soon.
But alas, the creators still warn in a disclaimer that people should drink in moderation stating, “Alcohol overdose can kill you and Hangover Heaven cannot reverse death.”
Here’s a better idea: Stop drinking after two glasses of wine and save yourself the trouble–and the cash.
