So you made it through Mardi Gras Day. You woke up early and caught Zulu. You walked to the Marigny to see the costumes. You even caught a bit of the truck parades. And now, you feel terrible.
Here are some of the ways you can recover after Mardi Gras:
The Remedy Room

This business is right along the parade route — remember that awful place? — on St. Charles Avenue. It’s all about rehydration here, with IV therapy to help you get over your hangover. According to the website, some people feel better in as little as 30 minutes. Hangover remedies include a liter of hydrating fluids, B vitamins and the choice of an anti-nausea or anti-inflammatory medication.
Sitting in silence is sometimes the best remedy. It provides solace and peace, and even better, the day after Mardi Gras is Ash Wednesday. So, maybe the church will have more people in it than usual, but most of them will be partied out from yesterday, as well, and will understand. St. Louis Cathedral is open Wednesday, and Mass times are 12:05 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Egg sandwiches – the little known hangover cure
Everything you need all in one bite. Protein, grease, fat, and bread. These things are scientifically proven, I’m pretty sure, to make you feel better the morning after. Have you ever heard a person with a brutal hangover say, ”I just really need a salad right now?” No. Click here for a list of epic egg sandwiches to cure your hangover blues.
If you’re a traditionalist, yakamein is the go-to dish to help you through. It’s a concoction of spaghetti noodles, bits of beef, green onion and a boiled egg and its most-famous maker is Ms. Linda. The only place you can get her version regularly is at Bywater Bakery and it’s definitely worth it if you’re under the weather.
