    If you're looking for comfort food then Betty's is a must-stop spot. Catering to those with food allergies, Betty's has quickly become a local favorite for those looking for delicious and affordable food that's also healthy. For those who've had a little too much to drink the night before, the Betty's Bloody is the way to go. Their version of a bloody mary comes in a pint glass with a healthy dose of horseradish to help work all of the toxins out of your body.

    Regardless of when you visit Hydraulic Hearth you need to try one of their artisanal cocktails, hand \crafted by one of their skilled bartenders. With one of the best cocktail menus in the city, you know that you'll be in good hands after a night out drinking. Their beermosa (pictured here) is a simple, yet satisfying mix for anyone fighting off the effects of a hangover and their bloody mary is made for a house recipe. But don't fill up too much on drinks (you are trying to fight off your hangover, remember) because they have a fierce brunch menu and live music to wake you up a bit.

With dishes like fried oyster strips and oyster hash skillet, it's a perfect place for someone looking to indulge in upscale cuisine with a penchant for seafood. They also offer an extensive cocktail menu for brunch that includes great hangover cures like the Burning Bourbon--filled with a healthy dose of cayenne pepper to clear out your system, and a Bloody Mary made from a house mix and topped with a shrimp garnish.

    The Lodge

    ••• The Lodge

    Sitting in the main dining room of The Lodge it's hard to believe you're not in an upscale city like Los Angeles or New York, but let's be honest, after a night of heavy drinking you didn't come here for the atmosphere (although it doesn't hurt.) What draws in the crowds during their weekend brunches are their over-the-top dishes like fried chicken and waffles or the stuffed french toast, served with bacon ice cream. For those looking to pair a cocktail with their entree, I'd suggest the Lodgie Tottie--a bourbon cocktail made with peppermint tea, honey and lemon juice--ideal for someone fighting off a bout of nausea.
