Brandy is the worst for hangovers, then in descending order are: Red Wine, Rum, Whisky, White Wine, Gin, Vodka. So I guess the rule is to keep it clear. Also you might remember from last year that we found dehydration has a lot to do with the headache part of most hangovers. So remember to drink water as you enjoy your cocktails. This new year addition to the Lounge Lizard covers comfort food for hangovers and various other hangover information. We hope you enjoy it.

Greg and Jim were a couple of drinking buddies who worked as airplane mechanics in Atlanta. One day the airport was fogged in and they were stuck in the hangar with nothing to do. Greg said, "Man, I wish we had something to drink!" Jim says, "Me too. Y'know, I've heard you can drink jet fuel and get a buzz. You wanna try it?"

So they poured themselves a couple of glasses of high octane hooch and got completely smashed. The next morning Greg woke up and was surprised at how good he felt. In fact, he felt GREAT! NO hangover! NO bad side effects. Nothing!

Then the phone rings, it's Jim. Jim says, "Hey, how do you feel this morning?" Greg says, "I feel great. How about you?" Jim says, "I feel great, too. You don't have a hangover?" Greg says, "No, that jet fuel is great stuff - no hangover, nothing. We ought to do this more often."

"Yeah, well there's just one thing..."

"What's that?"

"Have you farted yet?"

"No ..."

"Well, DON'T, 'cause I'm in PHOENIX."

The B.K. Lounge Grill: Skillet Potato Omelet and other comforts from hangover.

The B. K. Lounge believes the cure for a hangover is somewhere between rehydration and grease. This recipe and a couple of bottles of water might cure you.

4 cups potatoes
1/2 lb. bacon
1/2 cup bacon drippings
6 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cut 6 slices of bacon into 1-inch pieces. Pan fry until browned. Drain. Cook remaining bacon to desired crispness; drain and keep warm. Brown potatoes in 1/4 cup hot bacon drippings; keep warm.

Combine eggs, milk, and salt. Beat together. In a 10 or 12-inch fry pan, heat remaining 1/4 cup bacon drippings until moderately hot. Add egg mixture. Cook over low heat. As outer edge thickens, tilt pan and lift omelet gently to allow uncooked portion to flow underneath.

When bottom of omelet is browned and mixture is firm, spread browned potatoes over half of the top and sprinkle cheese over potatoes. Fold omelet over and serve at once with remaining cooked bacon slices. Makes 3-4 servings. *For zesty flavor add things you like; onions, green pepper, mushroom, etc.

*The Hangover Cure:

Hair of the Dog Cure: Blood Mary, champagne breakfast, Beer and tomato juice (Red Eye) and some sleep.

Russian Cure: Eat some pickled gherkins or tomatoes and drink some of the juice.

Korean Cure: A tea containing a mixture of alder, licorice root, honey and ground-up gourd that allegedly helps the liver detoxify alcohol.

Greasy Burger and Shake Cure: Crawl out to the nearest burger joint and do it up. This with the Hair of the Dog Cure works also.

Chowder Cure: If you are so blessed to have good New England Chowder around, have a steaming bowl. Watch familiar reruns on TV while dozing in and out of consciousness.

Puke Cure: No one likes this cure except the person who is walking around all chipper the morning after worshiping the porcelain Buddha.

Steam Cure: If you belong to a gym or just happen to have a steam room in your house, go sit in it. Bringing a bunch of water and some Southern Comfort freezer cicles to further comfort the body.

*Cures are not tested. Except for the the Skillet Potato Cure in conjunction with drinking lots of water, taking aspirin and going for a long walk somewhere pleasant.

Irving Benson and Jessie Carter were married on October 24 in the church. So ends a friendship that began in their school days.
