Missing teeth, stolen police cars -- and where the hell is Mike Tyson's tiger?

At one time or another, most of us have experienced the unpleasant and sometimes even life-altering effects following the heavy use of alcohol. Most everyone's got their swear-by-it hangover cure, but what about Valley chefs and restaurateurs? What do our service industry folks do when they get over-served?

I asked a few and this is what they had to say:

Thirty-two ounces of water before bed (prevention), wake up, hot shower, greasy breakfast, lots of coffee, and then switch to grape Pedialyte.

A chocolate milkshake. I got this advice from my dad when I went to college, and it works. The cold is nice and soothing and the lactic acid settles your stomach. I prefer mine made with chocolate ice cream -- not vanilla ice cream -- and chocolate syrup.

The couch and cheap Mexican food! Nothing like a #2 from Fili B's and a day watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey to make you feel better!

Advil, a lot of water, sticking my head under the shower, and then a steam for 30 minutes. I've had to do that a few too many times, especially after a night with Chef James Porter!

After a epic night of scotch drinking with Chef Gross, I usually drink a ton of water, exceed the recommended dose of Tylenol, and send my wife to get a shitload of Jade Palace. Does the trick every time! P.S.: Hey, Chef Gross, whatcha doin' after service tonight?
