New Chili's Bar & Grill in Isla Verde

For those of you who may partake in the occasional consumption of massive quantities of alcohol, and you know who you are, there are few strategies that will lessen the price you will pay for your excess. I've never really tried many hangover remedies, but I did use two home grown cures to some success. So if you're one of those that have tried a few things without any luck and are looking for any way to lessen the nausea, headaches, and cold sweats that come from a hard night of partying, DR MC Don Dees is here to help.

The first thing you need to do, is never, I mean NEVER crash on an empty stomach. If you do, you are literally asking for both barrels of hangover right between the eyes. Take it from me, this is something you do not want to experience. And I don't mean a bag of chips, or a qwiki-mark rancid hotdog or slice of pizza and an energy drink. That's like feeding the ultimate explosion to come, if you know what I mean. No I mean a sit down in a restaurant and ordering some heavy food experience. This has two advantages. First the greater amount of time you can put between the end of drinking and the obligatory crash is good. Really good. But the second obvious benefit is mixing some decent nourishing food into the noxious mix you currently have in your gut. Typically this will help rebuild the electrolytes you have lost and replenish your blood sugar, which was hit rock bottom as your body tries to burn off the alcohol. Oh yeah and pop a few Tylenol before you hit the sack, that always seems to help.

The second thing is, when you awake and your head is throbbing and your eyes are burning and your stomach is churning (remember I said lessen not eliminate - anyways you partied like a wild animal, so just suck it up and take it like a man), you have two objectives. Rehydrate and restore electrolytes as quickly as possible. That means consume as much water (or Gatorade) as your stomach can tolerate and consume as many items from the sugar food group as possible. And while it still may take a while before you feel human again, I think you'll agree it will take less time with this prescription. You can thank ole Doc Dees later. ;-)

So this summer, if you've been partying hard and are looking to follow the MC Don Dees prescription, head over to Isla Verde and hunt down the new location for Chili's Bar and Grill. Because the popular restaurant chain will be opening it's 15 location in front of the Hotel San Juan & Casino. Why this particular location? Well, with this new location the chain will debut two things. First this location will remain open until 3 a.m. and second, it will feature a breakfast menu. And while there's hardly anything better to soak up all of those beers than a tall order of pancakes, you'll have to head over for Denny's for that, because the breakfast menu will only be available between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Of course, if you've been partying REALLY hard, 6:00 a.m. might be just about right.

The new restaurant is estimated to cost approximately $1.8 million and will offer 150 to 180 jobs. With 6,000 square feet, the restaurant is expected to seat 260 persons. The establishment will also offer a sport bar and a mezzanine area, which will be available as a rental for special activities.
