Genius Vegas Doctor Launches Hangover-Cure-on-Wheels

How did this not happen sooner? Today we get word that enterprising anesthesiologist Jason Burke launched an operation called Hangover Heaven. Of course, this is in Las Vegas, on a bus, outfitted with plush seats and flat-screen TVs. He calls his treatment room a "medical practice on wheels, analogous to a physician with an RV offering X-rays, MRIs or mammograms, a mobile dentist, or a blood bank bus set up in an office-building parking lot." Well, it's almost like that, except his patients' wounds are self-inflicted.

The good doctor relieves revelers with "stomach-churning wooziness, headaches and body pains" by administering a full complement of hangover soothers designed to get people back to the slot machines and bars ASAP.

A "redemption package" will run you $90 and consists of "intravenous hydration." For $150 you can upgrade to the "salvation package," which consists of "intravenous hydration, anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory medications." And high rollers can get in-room treatment for $500. That might sound like a lot to spend on something that a nap normally cures, but know that "the in-room treatment consists of an actual doctor coming to your room."

And of course, the doctor's assistant will be wearing a "suggestive nurse's outfit," because, well ... of course.
