Monday night we had a party to celebrate an Albany radio legend and I had to roast him.  Well, I was a little nervous about my speech so I indulged in a little Shiraz.  No biggie, right?

Wrong, when my alarm went off on Tuesday morning I had a headache and I was queasy.

But, there is hope for folks like me.  Some scientists in Australia say they've finally figured out the best hangover cure.

It's an Asian pear.

They found people who ate a pear or drank pear juice before they overindulged had very mild hangovers, less memory loss, and less trouble concentrating.

They also didn't mind bright light and loud noises like you normally do when you're hungover.

Obviously the catch is that pears only work if you have them BEFORE you drink . . . they won't help you once you already HAVE a hangover.

So, it's not really a cure, but preventative maintenance.

Also, you should know that it only works with Asian pears, which you may or may not be able to get at the old Price Chopper.

They haven't tested it with the green pears that are more common in the US, but they're doing that next - you might wanna perform your own experiment this weekend, or before the Brantley Gilbert concert!

Let me know how it works out!
