If you don’t vomit from the smell of booze, you’re doing alright.

Of course you can always run to the ole’ stand-by: massive sauce-drenched burritos. ?

It’ll soak up all the remaining alcohol and get you full enough to slip into a food coma.

A bowl of Bolivian fricasé might do the trick if you have the patience for that.

Or just make your way to abuelita’s house and let her know what’s up. She’ll take care of you.
