This Major Chain Only Serves This Burger on Request, 7 Days Out of the Year

Red-Robin-Cure

Over the years, there have been many burgers that laid claim to being the cure for hangovers.

Red Robin has revealed that they’ll introduce The Cure Burger early next year, very early next year. Made with a fire-grilled gourmet patty, the burger is topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, mushrooms, chili and a fried egg, all served on a sesame bun. If that wasn’t enough, it also comes with bottomless steak fries.

Sure, the burger doesn’t sound too crazy. Fried egg? That’s cool.

However, what’s interesting is that the burger is set to arrive January 1 and only be available through January 7. That means you can get the burger for just one week, coinciding with leading hangover dates. Patrons will have to specifically request the burger be prepared, as it won’t appear on the menu.

Guaranteed hangover cure or not, the exclusivity of the burger definitely makes it all the more enticing. Though we’re not sure if relying on anyone with a hangover to remember an exclusive, secret menu item is the best idea.

Eat Through Your Hangover with this Whimsically Illustrated Children’s Parody Book

Hungover-Caterpillar-Book

For anyone who remembers reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar as a child and grew up to be a person who experiences devastating hangovers, there’s a book for you.

Author pair Emlyn Rees and Josie Lloyd, along with illustrator Gillan Johnson, have published a new book titled The Very Hungover Caterpillar. Following their previous work, We’re Going on a Bar Hunt, the children’s parody book illustrates a father suffering from a major hangover. He must then eat his way out of it, while his family gets through their day.

The book is just one in a new emergence in the popularity of children’s parody books for adults. Copies of the The Very Hungover Caterpillar can be purchased at Bookspeed.

The 12 Strangest and Most Fantastic Hangover Cures from Around the World [INFOGRAPHIC]

Hangover Cure

Let’s say it’s the morning after a night out, and you’re royally hungover. Headache, dry-heaving, the works. What’s your go-to remedy? If you’re like many Americans, anything greasy, cheesy and/or bacon-y is it. But if you visit another country, that breakfast cure might change from delicious and comforting to eccentric and shocking.

British design agency NeoMam didn’t create the below infographics for the weak-stomached. Why? Because one way to get rid of hangovers is with pickled sheep eyeballs in tomato juice. THAT’S WHY. The Italians tend to go a different route with pizzle, or dried bull’s penis, while Peruvians fancy “fish scrape”. Don’t ask.

If you’ve successfully avoided gagging thus far, then read on brave soul. Of course, we’re curious to know how common these hangover cures really are and we’re sure in some parts of the world, pancakes soaked in syrup and fried pig aren’t the ideal cure. So sound off in the comments below. Sparrow droppings in brandy and sheep lungs lie ahead.

Sounds Reasonable: Japanese Cafe Sometimes Closed Due to ‘Hangovers,’ ‘Witch Attacks,’ and ‘Feeling Kind of Sad Today’

hangover1

Ask anyone for a single reason they didn’t want to come to work today, and you’ll probably end up with a list of at least ten or twelve. But it’s a rare employer who’ll actually grant you a day off simply because you were “feeling kind of sad.”

To the folks at the Ajiyoshi cafe in Tsukuba, Japan, however, being down in the dumps is a totally legitimate reason to play hooky. As is “the summer heat being […] too much to take,” “eating too many grilled chicken skewers,” and “magic attack-related back pain.”

According to Japanese news site Rocket News, the notoriously easy-going, mom-n-pop cafe Ajiyoshi has been known to close its doors on a whim frequently throughout the years, but always with good reason, as proven by the chalkboard sign outside or the restaurant’s Twitter feed.

Some of our favorites include:

“We’re feeling kind of sad today. So, we’re closed.”

“We totally screwed up cooking one of our side dishes. So, we’re closed.”

“A witch attacked us out of the blue. We’re in bed with magic attack-related back pain.”

“Hungover. Try again tomorrow.”

“We ate too many grilled chicken skewers yesterday. Sorry, we’re gonna have to take the day off.”

Can you say dream job?

This ‘Hangover Taxi’ Will Serve You Noodles and Bring You to Work

hangover-taxi

In what is perhaps the most brilliant idea of 2014, a London noodle shop has launched Kab-U-To Work, a service they’ve dubbed the “Hangover Taxi.” Yes, it’s everything you’ve ever dreamed of and more. The unique taxi service picks up hurting party-goers from their doorsteps and ushers them to work in a car decked out with a hot bowl of Kabuto noodles, orange juice, breath mints, hangover medicine and even sunglasses.

I’m sorry friends and family, but England beckons.

 Apparently, Kabuto was inspired to create the hangover service when they realized the market was lacking a proper form of transportation after a night of one too many tequila shots. At the moment, the service is free during the holidays, as the company is still testing the service to gauge it’s success before potentially expanding to other cities. 

For those lucky ladies and gents in London, you can pre-book Kab-U-To via kabutowork@kabutonoodles.com with location and pick-up times or by tweeting @kabutonoodles with #kabutowork.

Unfortunately, ladies and gents in the states will be heading to work post-Christmas sans noodles.

‘Hangover-Preventing’ Beer Adds Electrolytes, Decreases ABV, Is Practically Useless

beergatorade

What happens when Gatorade starts breaking into the beer belly market? Making “sports drinks” tailored specifically to those stalwart individuals who, much like Gatorade’s usual clientele, dedicate hours of their days to doing exactly what they do best (rain or shine, sickness or health, standing up or, more likely, lying down)?

Well when it does happen (and in a few years it will, trust us), we’re guessing it’ll look a little bit like this.

A group of Australian researchers has been working on a way to make beer more hydrating, i.e., less-punch-in-the-gut-hate-yourself-in-the-morning-oh-god-why-and-never-again. They discovered that by adding electrolytes (you know, those tiny invisible fireflies that make Gatorade and Vitamin Water magically good for you) and lowering the alcohol content, they could keep all of beer’s taste and only a margin of the “ugh!”.

Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald reports the researchers found the best results with the electrolyte-fortified light beer, which was up to a third more effective at hydrating drinkers than a normal beer. But you can’t help but wonder, what with the lower ABV and all, exactly how much more you’d have to drink just to get the same buzz? Or in other words, when I’m finally done drinking this stuff, will I still have the same level of hangover in the morning because I just so happened to overdo it, again?

Let’s just hope there’ll be plenty more research done between now and when Gatorade inevitably commercializes this idea, say three years down the road. Seriously guys, just do it.

Bacon Weave Breakfast Taco Cures Your Weekend Hangover

bacon-taco-breakfast

Thank you thank you thank you incredible genius at Dude Foods who came up with this creation. The search for the perfect hangover food is finally over.  Forget pancakes, omelets with not enough salt, and the sad excuses for nachos you get at your local brunch spot.  Forget (I can’t believe I’m saying this) IHOP, Denny’s, and the 24-hour diner.  Because bacon reigns supreme, and this spectacular Bacon Weave Breakfast Taco is king.

We’re super excited to see what other varieties of delicious tacos Dude Foods comes up with.  Personally, I’d love to see one with some pepper jack and bacon scrambled eggs (because yes, I need more), topped with some crispy onion crunchies.  For now, I’ll have to settle for a sad bagel and loads of water.
