Real Life Hangover Cures



By Trey Humphreys

Let’s focus for a minute. If there is one thing I hate in this glorious world of ours, it’s a handicap inducing hangover. If you don’t drink or can drink in moderation like a real show off, then stop reading this and focus on your ROTH IRA. For the rest of you that like to party, keep reading….

I asked jeeves how to cure a hangover and found a smattering of terrible blogs with advice like “don’t drink ” and “drink a glass of water after every drink”. You bet. Let me whip up a spreadsheet to carry along for the evening and track the drink to water ratio while I crush a full liter of Fireball and 30 gallons of Bud Light, bottle.  Folks, I have drank Applebee’s out of white zin 4 times in my life. LITERALLY.

After the internet failed me (just like Tinder) I decided to do some real R&D. I asked my drunk friends what they do to cure a hangover. They sent me some horrible jokes and some interesting answers oddly enough….

10. Danny Maldonado (DJ Danny M) – Danny is a DJ and therefore is up in the club 14 nights a week. If you don’t know, EVERYONE wants to do shots with the DJ. EVERYONE is french for every annoying 23-year-old girl in the club who, god willing, must get into the DJ booth, request the worst song on the radio and spill her drink on anything electronic. Anyway, here is his go-to hangover cure:

Morning shag then Mexican pozole (green or red) then back to sleep. Next, ask what happened the night before and perform apology text messages. Cry alone until alcohol leaves system via tear ducts and finish with Mexican for dinner”

I have no idea what Pozole is but assume it’s similar to Peyote and motor oil. Also, can you substitute masturbation for shagging? Asking for a friend.

9. Ashley Hesseltine – Pro blogger, pro girlfriend (not mine you creeps) and pro vodka hoarder. When I asked for her hangover remedy she sent me her blog, of course. After reading that book I condensed it down to this:

“Drink 16 ounces of water with lemon, cup of coffee with coconut oil to kick start the system or force bowel movement, eat a banana, get in the ocean (or cool/cold water)”

Side Note: She once took me to New York City for a Vodka event where we made Cinnabon flavored whipped Vodka and orange Juice. Arguably the worst liquid I have ever consumed in all my 27 years on this earth.

For further details on her cure, read the full blog here: The 6-Step Program for Curing a Hangover

8. Tasha Mize – Bartender at 5 Paces Inn for the past 300 years. True redneck from the hills of Tennessee where moonshine goes down like moonshine. Her cure:

“BC Powder and Lemon Lime Gatorade or two jager bombs”.

Finally, a real answer of value sans jager bombs which taste like syrup and burnt cat hair.

7. Beau Rasnik – Another long term bartender from the flanks of Tin Lizzy’s and Kramer’s. This nerd is a runner and says the following:

“Take 2 electrolyte pills before bed”

Apparently you can buy said pills at a “running store”. Who TF goes to a “running store”. Dweebs. And runners I guess.

6. Isaac Stout – Tequila.

The Real World is a place where people “stop being polite, and start getting real”. Loser.

4. Derik Purdy – Derik owns 5 bars in Alabama (INNISFREE) and some claim he made the Florabama Mullet Toss the party it is today. I have never met a human being that can party as hard and as long as this fella.  Here is his go-to:

“The ocean, an adderall, steam room and pedialitye”

That sh*t actually sounds like it would work. It also sounds like the diet of an 8 year old kid at beach camp.

3. Dr. Bill Stephens – Bill is a son of New Orleans, completely nuts and somehow a real Doctor in Miami. He also got completely naked at the Lady Gaga concert at the Fox Theatre. He has two methods:

1) “Before leaving bar, ask for 1/2 cup of pickle juice. Drink the pickle juice with a shot of your choice. Drink a gatorade on way home”

2) “If you have a physician friend, get a banana bag which is an IV that includes: 1 liter normal saline/30 mg iv Toradol/4 mg Zofran/1000 mcg IV b12”

Is Lady Gaga still alive?

2. Jacob Blazer –  Jake plays in a band (Jacob and the Good People) and is sponsored by Jagermeister and liver failure. Forced to play and booze in all the haunts across the East Coast every week, he swears by the following:

“Goody’s powder pack, deuce deuce of beer and a pickle in a bag”  

Apparently you can get “A Pickle in a Bag” at the shittiest gas stations across the Southeast. Add boiled peanuts from the can and clove cigarettes and I’m in.

1. Jamie Shirah – Jamie owns The Ivy and also the greatest company ever invented in the history of mankind and womankind, Vida-flo: The Hydration Station. This is a place you can go to get a IV bag of goodies for around $40-$50 bucks instead of buying shitty health insurance in order to fake alcohol poisoning at Grady Hospital. The number 1 hangover cure sold up in that joint is:

The Blue Lagoon – $49.99 – Fluids, Vitamin C, B12, B-complex, Toradol (headache), Zofran (nausea) and oxygen”

You could win an iron man after that bag of fun. Plus you get to relax in a recliner the whole time while reevaluating your entire life. I’ll take 6 bags and a self help audio tape.

There you go wastoids. And yes I skipped over #5. If you have a better method, let me know or @asocialmess on Instagram. I don’t do Snapchat because I am fairly stupid.

Self Evaluation Sunday

Hey friends,

Many moons ago, a good, yet drunk friend of mine introduced me to the term “Self Evaluation Sunday”. Well team, I had one of those this past Sunday. This is a Sunday where you wake up and ask the universe a simple questions: Why am I such a dumb ass?

 Have you ever woken up on Sunday with your face stuck to your pillow from a face gash you know nothing about and a hangover worse than a moose attack? If not, enjoy your perfect life.


It all started with a clothing sale around high noon on Saturday with a friend. I don’t want to name names so let’s just call said friend, Enabler. Ashley Hesseltine, I mean said friend and I decided to swing by Tin Lizzy’s Cantina for some lunch and a “couple drinks”. You know the rest of the story.

Thirty-five drinks later, an Auburn win and a touch of Avicii EDM music resulted in a damn near concussion and bed time around 9 pm. Sunday was hell. Unlike you, I get hangovers. And my face is not made of steel. Ergo, my head could not have hurt any worse. Now, the question is how  mankind  clone sheep on Mars and play candy crush on mobile phones but not figure out how to make a hangover pill that works? Where are our priorities? My God people, if I knew how to use Twitter I would tweet Johnson & Johnson and get those bastards to figure it out. For now, I will never drink again.

Halloween BOOnanza


You wanna be startin’ somethin’!? Well then alert Tito, Latoya, Paris, Blanket, Lisa Marie Presley, and the crazy grandma because we are throwing a tribute to the late, great MICHAEL JACKSON for Halloween this year! A Social Mess dishonorably presents HALLOWEEN BOOnanza Part 3 and we’re calling all dancing zombies, pretty young things, smooth criminals, Billie Jean lovers, moonwalkers, dirty girls named Diana, and men in the mirror to come heal the world.


Shockingly, we are neither in jail nor being sued from last year, THEREFORE we shall celebrate the grandpappy of all holidays on Saturday, October 27 at the Buckhead Theatre. We are going to turn that joint into Neverland Ranch with more than 2,000 of the hottest, fattest, and morally immune party people in Atlanta. The last two years were monsters, and this year we are upping the ante thanks to the King of Pop himself (may he rest in peace)–more DJs, more lasers, more weirdos, more booze, more professional dancers, more glow sticks, more condoms, and more fake breasts than a Hoobastank concert. We’re introducing a $1,004.00 costume contest, Hottest Single Mom Contest, Thriller flash mob, midnight champagne countdown, and some of the oddest entertainment we can hire. Get your tickets now because we very strategically raise the prices every week to pressure you into buying them. GENIUS. We went to high school b*tches.

Who’s Bad?  GET TICKETS!!

Also…….don’t forget how f*ing amazing this party is. Let us remind you:

Date Auction at Johnny’s Hideaway: 4/19

Johnny’s Hideaway Thursday, April 19th 7-11 PM


Because we know you get desperate sometimes, we’re bringing you a once-in-a-lifetime, er, once-in-a-year opportunity to buy your next date. With actual money. Because whipping out your wallet to “ask out” a member of the opposite sex in a bar is frowned upon and may get you slapped…or arrested. Won’t you join us Thursday, April 19 at the world-class Johnny’s Hideaway for the 3rd Annual One Love Date Auction? Trey (a complete trainwreck of an ex-mascot) and Ace (former Real Worlder and current bar owner) will host the auction where over 25 sexxxxay girls and guys will be up for your bidding pleasure. We’re talking Hooters calendar girls. We’re talking (former) ACC football players. We’re talking cat groomers. We’re talking CEOs (of their own Twitter pages). And everything in between.

The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the games will begin around 7. We advise getting there early so you can hit the bar (if you’re into that sort of thing) & order your first. Click here for pre-sale tickets, 100% goes directly to One Love Generation so don’t even try to pull a fast one and get in for free because you will just look like an a-hole and then no one will want to go out with you. If you’re interested in reserving a table, please call Johnny’s at 404-233-8026.

See you there.  And don’t “forget your wallet.”  We know that trick all too well.
