Party First Aid

The only proven treatment to avoid a hangover is abstention, but according to folklore:

Aspirin and ice packs

Lots of strong, black coffee

Lots of water

More alcohol

Sleep

Cold shower or exercise

Tomato juice and Worcestershire sauce

Greasy food

Menudo (Mexican tripe soup)

Spago? Don't Even Try

Wolfgang Puck of Spago Beverly Hills is treating special clientele to a can of his soup and a coupon for his frozen pizza because he had to close to the public this week because the restaurant has been rented out by Democratic partygoers.
