hungover

This weekend is Thanksgiving. Which typically means lots of food, lots of family time and of course, lots of alcohol. Us Ottawans find any reason to celebrate and making it through another family event is definitely a logical reason.

There are those lucky people who hardly get hungover no matter how much alcohol they consume. And then there's those other lucky few who get a brutal migraine just from one drink. Anyways, no matter who you are, after a long night of drinking you'll need to repair yourself with these tips:
