Hangover helpers

What's the worst part of Jan. 1 (besides untagging yourself from unflattering photos from the previous night's revelry)? Yep, it's the hangover. Fortunately, the four finalists of RedEye's 2013 Best Bartender competition have a few tried-and-true-tricks for banishing the morning-after blech. 

Meg Silvas
Dusek's Board & Beer and Punch House
"A hangover is nothing a trip to the movies can't fix. Fountain pop, buttery fresh popcorn with a side of jalapenos and turning your brain off for a bit is the perfect combo."

Briar Brackney
"My latest hangover cure is a Coco Cafe drink or coconut water and a shot of Angostura bitters. Those sailors had it right all along—bitters cures all!"

Ken Zawacki
Maria's Packaged Goods & Community Bar
"Wake up feeling like a million bucks! I can sum up a hangover cure in one word: hydration. Have a glass of water or two during your night of debauchery; you'll thank me in the morning."

Sarah VonderHaar
Old Town Social and Prost
"My hangover cure would be an amazing spicy breakfast—chilaquiles preferably—and then my little secret of a multivitamin or B-vitamin complex, an antacid and a couple good old ibuprofens. It helps with your vitamin B and C, your stomach and that fun little headache that comes along with a fun night out. If all else fails ... just sleep."

    Rejoice! Adele's new album is rumored to arrive this fall

    There's a fire starting in my heart and it's making me realize it's been kind of a while since Adele released an album. Her last full-length "21" dropped in 2011 and I barely remember that year it feels so long ago. But now, there's some good news to fill our recently Adele-less lives and it's...
