You're working out the details of the club-hopping extravaganza for your special event, including arranging for a party bus. That way, everyone can travel together and nobody in your group will be drinking and driving. Since you're helping everyone be responsible and doing your best to make this event a great time, use some proactive strategies to prevent hangovers -- or at least reduce the severity.
Keep Alcohol Off the Bus
You don't want to seem like a killjoy, but keeping alcohol off the bus is an effective technique for preventing hangovers because it forces everybody to take a break between stops. The body then has some time to metabolize a certain amount of alcohol consumed without having to manage more of it.
Provide Healthy Beverages
One reason hangovers occur is because alcohol is dehydrating. Your party bus will probably have at least one refrigerator, and possibly two, so bring plenty of bottled water for your guests.
You'll also want to offer beverages that replenish electrolytes and provide antioxidants to reduce inflammation in the body. Coconut water, fruit juices and sports drinks are good choices.
Bring Healthy Snacks
Eating food slows alcohol absorption and gives the body more time to metabolize it. A combination of protein and carbohydrates is advisable. On the bus, offer snacks such as:
- high-quality granola bars
- trail mix
- no-salt nut mixes
- bananas, a good source of the electrolyte potassium
Spread out the Distance Between Stops
As you map out your club-hopping journey, set a minimum distance between stops. That way, your guests have time to metabolize some of the alcohol they drank at the previous bar. They'll also be more inclined to have a non-alcoholic beverage and some snacks on the way.
Be a Role Model
You don't want to nag your guests about hangover prevention; be a role model instead. Make sure people see you drinking water and other beverages, and indulging in some healthy snacks.
Add a Breakfast Stop at the End
A breakfast with foods such as scrambled eggs, steak, toast and fruit helps the body slow its absorption of alcohol to a healthier pace. With some food in the digestive system, a person is much less likely to wake with a pounding headache or other unpleasant hangover symptoms.
With these six strategies, your guests will have an excellent chance of feeling good when they wake up in the morning. They'll be grateful you took these actions on their behalf.
