I was at the “Hog’s Breath Saloon” on Duval Street on Sunday enjoying some great music when the people from IV’s in the Keys came in and set up 4 IV’s and hooked 4 clients up to them. I’d thought that I’d seen everything that I could see in a bar, but this was a new one for me. I had to ask what it was all about, and I was told that it was a method of hangover prevention and / or cure.
“No need to suffer the residual effects of excessive alcohol consumption. Don’t let a night of overindulgence ruin the rest of your weekend or vacation! We have the cure! Before you get carried away with the party, here is an idea that could possibly help with your recovery the day after. The IV Restores Hydration, Decreases Inflammation, Delivers An Energy Boost, Relieves Stomach Pain, Relieves Nausea & Vomiting and Boosts Immune System”, according to IV’s in the Keys website.
Not being one to judge, I guess that this has the possibility of working. I’ve seen many racers get hooked up to IV’s after a long race to assist with dehydration and exhaust inhalation, so why not for a hangover. It is a wild and crazy world out there, and this may be just what we need in our local saloons, have a cold one and get hooked up to and IV and then carry on like a crazy person for the rest of the night. Why Not?
