One too many beverages with your fellow University of Chicago alumni may have caused your less-than-desirable headache and body aches. It’s time to cure that hangover, so down a glass of water and hop on the L to experience one of these proven spots to cure a hangover in Chi-town.
Carbs and grease are the unofficial keys to battling the worst of hangovers. Travel over to Spritz Burger off of North Broadway in the Lakeview neighborhood and order up the poutine burger, a beef patty covered in fries, white cheddar cheese curds and gravy. Finish off your meal with a side of tator tots and say buh-bye to that nasty hangover.
Glazed & Infused
For an unconventional hangover cure, treat yourself to a sweet feast of unique doughnuts from Glazed & Infused in Lincoln Park. Begin with a large coffee (with an extra hit of espresso) and then ogle over some of the best doughnuts in Chicago. Don’t miss your chance to sink your teeth into the maple bacon long john, layered with real maple glaze and candied bacon.
One of the classiest ways to nurse a hangover is to experience rustic dining at River Roast. Award-winning chefs tend to thick cuts of meat carved tableside, and hearty eats such as country friend rabbit and pork meatballs will fill your deprived stomach. While enjoying river views from one of the best patios in the city, you can take in some much-needed fresh air.
Barbeque may not be your first thought for a hangover cure, but the pulled meat nachos from Smoke Daddy will convince you otherwise. The saltiness of the chips combined with meat smothered in arguably the best BBQ in the Windy City will have you constantly reaching for more. All of the joint’s meat and veggies are smoked daily in the “Lil Red Smoker’ using hickory, apple and cherrywood, and the warm, earthy scents will lull you right into a late afternoon nap.
