HAGERSTOWN - Whether it's the bleary vision, the pounding headache or the sick feeling of dryness in your mouth, the immediate future might call for a few over-the-counter painkillers.
At least you've made it this far.
Hours before the first party of 2007, bartenders and fans enjoying football games Sunday offered a variety of hangover remedies - from pickle juice to sports drinks - for people suffering from too much New Year's Eve revelry.
"Slam a beer, that's it. That's pretty much the rule of thumb, man," said Chris Francisco, who puts the "C" in C & J's Roadhouse Grill.
A restaurant co-owner, Francisco said he has tried pretty much everything, including pickle juice and a mix of milk and orange juice to beat hangovers, but he said he knows only one foolproof cure.
