Scenario: You wake up Sunday morning with a pounding headache and incredible thirst. Your stomach is growling despite your late night drunchies (drunk munchies, you get it), during which you ate all the marshmallows out of your roommate’s Lucky Charms. (Sorry.) Now your only solution is to find your baggiest sweatpants and sunglasses and get some food to soak up that leftover alcohol. If this situation sounds familiar, I have the perfect list for you. These restaurants feel your pain and want to sooth your hungover mistakes.
Are you walk-of-shame-ing back from Georgetown on a Sunday morning? Pit stop at Serendipity 3 for a hangover omelet. Don't worry about judgmental stares as you chow down in your clubbing outfit and six-inch heels because this eatery usually only gets really crowded at night. Throw in a frozen hot chocolate if you're really in dire straits. Chocolate makes anything better.
For your very worst of hangovers, go to The Passenger. Besides pretty much being guaranteed to get you drunk again (never turn down a cocktail here), this dark-walled bar that serves food offers a patented “Hangover Brunch,” which doesn’t even open until 2 p.m. This place is made on Sundays to nosh on biscuits and gravy while trading stories from the night before with the table next to you.
Last on this list (although we know there are more) is Founding Farmers, sticks staunchly to the mantra that a plethora of calories is the best morning-after medicine. This humongous restaurant's hangover special includes a pimento cheese omelet smothered in beef chili. Moreover, here you don't have to be ashamed of your sweatpants and baseball cap covering your one-night-stand hair. With its proximity to GWU you can guarantee that there will be a group of students who look twice as bad. Now, feel better!
