Hangover Heaven

Happen to see this news story and had to post it up here!

Hangover Heaven is a new service being offered in Las Vegas and those boys from the film ‘The Hangover’ would probably have appreciated this a whole lot!

What is it?  It’s a mobile medical service staffed by a team of 25 doctors and nurses and was started by Las Vegas anaethetist, Jason Burke.  They can pick you up from your hotel and treat your hangover on the bus or take you to one of their nearby clinics and if you can’t make it out of your bed they’ll provide a VIP service where they provide the service in your hotel room.  Jason says that it has become so popular with British tourists that they are in talks to bring the service to the UK.

Here is their price list and you can read the full article here

HANGOVER HEAVEN PACKAGES

  • One litre of hydration fluid
  • Vitamins and antioxidants

REDEMPTION 2.0 – £77

Everything above plus:

  • Your choice of nausea medicine or headache medicine
  •  Glutathione

So a hangover cure that will cost you more than it cost you to drink yourself into the state requiring their services in the first place!  And more importantly, that innocent glass of social lubricant has this kind of impact that requires an extraordinary and expensive level of intervention to put your body straight again afterwards.

Just imagine what you could spend the money you spent drinking, and recovering from drinking, on instead?  Hell, that £142 would buy me a really nice spa day locally with massage, facial and 3 course meal included, and still have change for a bit of retail therapy!  What would you splurge this on instead?
