Best Places to Recover from a Hangover

Hanging Out

Best Places to Recover from a Hangover

We’ve all been there. Waking up at midday, bleary eyed, a jackhammer pounding in your head, sweating, even though the air-con has frozen the Doritos you left out overnight. All sure-fire signs of a hangover. And you had how many tequila shots last night? Seriously? Don’t you remember what happened last time. Oh, I suppose not. Well, fear not, it may feel like you’re dying, but there are plenty of hangover remedies: from mountains of greasy food, to sweating it out on a run (if you can even move), to a classic hair of the dog. Luckily, the Gold Coast has a bit of everything to cure your hangover blues. Just remember to put your sunnies on, it’s bright outside.
