Years from now, some of us will be able to look back and say, “You kids today have it too easy. Why, when I was your age, I had to stay in bed all day and whine about my hangover! You whippersnappers head over to the hangover clinic in Chicago and a hour later, you’re playing on your iPhone 60s. Bah, humbug!”
That’s how old people talk, right?
The important part here is that the Revive Hydration Clinic in River North, Chicago has just opened its doors with the claim that it can alleviate your hangover symptoms within the hour, via a combination of IV fluids, vitamins, and medications. We all know that horrible feeling the next morning is caused by dehydration — Revive seeks to perk you right up by taking all the hard parts of re-hydrating (like drinking water,ugh) out of the equation. They also offer conference, private and semi-private rooms, as well as blankets and eye covers, because no one really wants to be awake during a hangover so bad you’re willing to shell out $99 to get a little relief.
To that end, it’s worth it to note Revive also deals with people suffering from cold and flu symptoms, as well as athletes and jet-lagged business men. This idea (courtesy of Jack Dybis, surgeon, who says the medical community is “very aware” of the hangover struggle) is not the first of its kind, though: Hangover Heaven has been doing its thing in Vegas now for a while. On wheels, no less.
