Scientists recently discovered that the only surefire cure for a hangover is to eat comfort food you've only seen in dreams while lounging on translucent furniture and basking in the glow of wall-sized Lite-Brites dotted with space invaders. Alas, this is a wildly impractical solution to all those poor souls who don't live within range of today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of twisted comfort food and cocktails from Sweet Love Hangover. Hollywood's premier candy-colored, late-night restaurant rewards your day's work and nighttime habits with delicious re-imaginings of your favorite foods.
Sweet Love Hangover is a chic, modern American diner that invites you to play old-school board games while perusing a Mad Lib–covered and highly tempting menu. Box the ears of your cravings with all-day breakfast selections such as the Lucky Seven (two eggs, two pancakes, and three sausages or bacon strips, $8), or nibble on an order of Tott-Cho's, a hybrid of tater tots and nacho fixings ($8). The Hangover also matches crisp chicken tenders with gravy, two eggs over easy, and Tabasco sauce ($10.50) and pork chops with applesauce (garlic fried pork with mashed potatoes and pan gravy, $17). For exponential comfort food, try the Mac and Cheese x 4 (melting together smoked gouda, parmesan, asiago, Jack, and pancetta, $14.50).
When the dinner bell has long stopped ringing and your sweet tooth starts picking fights with surrounding teeth, shock it into submission with the Pop-Tart Tower (deep-fried Tarts topped with vanilla ice cream plus caramel and chocolate drizzles, $6.50) or a $12 specialty cocktail. Daddy's Caddy combines a classic Corzo margarita with orange juice and Grand Marnier, while Nurse Betty's Blues will kiss away your brain's boo-boo with a Hypnotiq Jell-O shot from a plastic syringe. If Sweet Love Hangover's hangover cure gives you another hangover, return to the top of this deal and repeat as necessary. There's no purchase limit per person.
Jessica Gelt at the Los Angeles Times writes that Sweet Love Hangover "specializes in your cure: grease. Tasty, peace-making grease. A fried bologna and jack cheese sandwich with Tabasco mayo will set you straight." A trio of Citysearchers give the joint five stars:
