Ring in the Recovery

The customary way to welcome the New Year is to tie one on, get loaded — or hammered, blotto, three sheets to the wind, or whatever your preferred phrase for excessive debauchery may be. But among career drinkers, New Year's Eve is scorned as "amateur hour," the dreaded night when less-dedicated peers cast off life's worries and get well lubricated on sugary cocktails and expensive craft beers. It's the following day — today — that separates the amateurs from the career-minded inebriates. To rouse oneself from bed on New Year's Day and stumble to the nearest tippling spot? That takes real commitment, and no small amount of practice. The third annual Supper of Survivors salutes these heroes for their perseverance and indefatigable spirits. Here, steadfast inebriates will get more than engorged livers for their trouble. They'll be honored by organizers Brass Tax with medals for their valorous work in the service of insobriety, and they'll be treated to an effective assortment of hangover triage methods, including downtempo beats, hunger-sating finger foods, and — look out, rookies! — cocktails to calm the delirium tremens.
