Last weekend marked the maiden run of a new curbside service called Hangover Heaven, dedicated to offering relatively quick relief to those suffering the residual effects of overindulgence.
For an introductory fee of $90 or $150, patients receive IV therapy (choose either Redemption or the higher-priced Salvation) to rehydrate as well as as regimen of anti-nausea medicine and vitamins. The whole shooting match is done in a half hour to 45 minutes.
The business is the brainchild of Jason Burke, who is, according to his website, a Duke-educated, board-certified anesthesiologist. Burke has a fleet of specially-equipped tour buses that make stops at the Hard Rock Hotel, Paris, Bellagio, and The Cosmopolitan. According to reports he is also talking to hotels about offering room service to the less ambulatory.
Planning a trip to Vegas? There is more information on the company's website and Burke is hoping that soon there will be an app for that.
