Mobile Hangover Clinic Hits Las Vegas

hangover

Where there is demand, there will be supply (via Mark Perry):

Hangover Heaven is a revolutionary new treatment that can cure your hangover in less than 45 minutes. Hangover Heaven involves placing a small IV in your arm to give you the necessary treatment to continue the party or just get back to your normal self. We use small Pediatric IVs and numbing medicine to make the process very comfortable.

We continuously make loops up and down the Las Vegas Strip. Most of the larger casinos have a “Tour Bus” pick up area, that’s where you’ll want to crawl and wait for us to pick you up. All of the casinos have this area pretty well marked–if your eyes are too blurry to read signs, ask the concierge or just some person walking by. We have faith in you. Below is a list of casinos with Tour Bus pick up areas and those where we can pick you up at the main entrance.

Once on the bus, our physician will take a brief medical history, and assess your hangover severity score. Then, numbing medicine is applied to your skin and a small IV will then be placed. Most people find it completely painless. Then you start receiving the treatment.

I’m not sure I like the bus as a business model. You’d think it would make more sense to set up clinics. Or perhaps they could hire out to show up the day after a big wedding reception, or a blogger conference. Stuff like that.

But maybe they’d have a hard time operating outside of Las Vegas. In most parts of the country, you’d expect an operation like this to get a cold shoulder from the often puritanical, prohibitionist-leaning powers-that-be.

    I think a better way would be to have someone waiting in your room, when you get in, and make you down a bottle of gatorade and a couple of aspirin, before you pass out fully clothed on the bed. Preventative medicine is always the best cure.

    A symbol of the failure of legalization.

      Right.  Because prohibition of alcohol worked so well.

      • Econwarrior

        It didn’t kill people in wholesale numbers, like legalized alcohol continues to do, and wasn’t a factor in nearly all violent crime, as well as child abuse and spousal abuse.   Legalization is a colossal failure, and we’re all paying for it, every day.

          You are a Taliban.  It continually shocks me how deluded you are and how you both advocate for small government and nanny-state prohibition-ism.  You don’t even know what the hell you want.  Imagine all the voices in your head, yelling back and forth at each other. 

          Talk about a walking contradiction.

          • Econwarrior

            The source of your confusion, little sparkie, is that you have been indoctrinated by port’s lying smears about me.  I notice you can’t refute anything I said about the tremendous damage from legalized alcohol, which is typical of the crippled liberal mind.
            You are the one with voices in your head.  They lead you to say lots of crazy things on this blog.

          No, instead the mafia and the black market pretty much took over on that end.

    Was this in another hidden section of Obamacare?

    Hope this works. Who how do the attendants get paid?  Rifling the pockets of the drunks would be one way, a “or else” bill from the county another. At least it keeps one out of the gun sights of the fearsome LVPD’s gunners.

      it does work… ask some of the military folks you know.

    Lol…  just another way to medicate. 

    A hangover is the body’s way of telling you to rehydrate and let the poisons metabolize out of the system.  But why would we want nature to do it’s work?

    Just think of how much less painful life would be when you’re trying to drink yourself to death a la “Leaving Las Vegas”…. 

    Or a day in the life of Sparkkkie Fartbuckle….  He’d probably demand the hangover bus be a constitutional right.

    Right Sparkkkie?

      Only wee men get hangovers.  I’ve heard the term (‘hangover’) used before, but have no personal acquaintanceship with this putative phenomena.

         What does one call the let down after a 5 day glue bender, Buttfuckle, old sock?

        • Sparkie Arbuckle

          I have no idea.  Maybe one of the older gay men that you play dungeons and dragons with, in the dungeon, dressed in drag… can tell you.

        • Sparkie Arbuckle

          Also, I lied.  This happened to me once after Dewar’s.

          • Onslaught1066

             

            I lied.

            And this surprises anyone, how?

          your expertise is bath salts, huh?

        Pay no attention to Hanni. He’s just jealous there isn’t an ecstasy withdraw bus.

    Stupid and not medically valid.

    • Jimmypop

      wrong. a hangover is caused by dehydration. this is the fastest way to re-hydrate. do a quick google search and you’ll see it works.

      ethically, i don’t think you’ll find anyone in a hospital that will do it.

  • mickey_moussaoui

    whatever happened to drinking a bloody mary and eating a good breakfast for a hangover?
