YooHoo Hog Faithful,
I think it is only fair that I be completely honest with you, I am soooo over football. This may have something to do with the fact that Razorboy can’t get enough, and thus my life is dictated by the SEC (primarily Alabama’s) football schedule. Don’t worry about me though; I have learned to cope. I read A LOT of books during football season.
Anyway, with all of the 11:21AM games this year, I thought it only fitting to share my Friday Night non-hangover plan with all of you. (Not that I always follow it…)
Dinner: YOU MUST CONSUME FOOD. I suggest something light. My go-to on Dickson is sushi. We always go to Wasabi because they have a college token and one of our fave bar tenders works there, Nick. I usually choose to switch off between Sake and light beer during dinner and make sure to suck down an entire glass of water before leaving.
Post-Dinner Drink: Head over to Theo’s for an Espresso Martini. It is delish and will give you energy to make it through the night. Red Bull is too much sugar for me and leaves me with a stomach ache, but this is just what I need to get the party started.
Kick it up a Notch: I would be remiss if I didn’t list Zooloo’s for $1 Jello Shots as a must. Just don’t get carried away. Two is plenty. I recommend red or blue. This is also a perfect time to chug water. This is what will keep that hangover at bay tomorrow.
Foot Loose and Fancy Free: By this time, I am the most fun girl on Dickson, or at least that is what I think. If I am wise, I stick to my drink of choice Kettle One and Water with Lime. I know, I know, I sound like an alcoholic, but honestly I could drink these all night and feel great in the morning. I don’t do well with sugar, so this works for me. Beware the shot buyers… This is where you will get in trouble. Do not let them stray you from your plan. The mixed shots are loaded with sugar and will get you sick quick. Dancing also helps to metabolize the alcohol, and at this point you are probably an awesome dancer.
Before bed: Drink a glass of water and take 2 Advil.
Viola!!! Hangover free. Kick the morning off with a Mimosa or a Bloody. Starting this early almost ensures a hangover by 5PM, but you will have made it through the game with flying colors.
