Hungover? What’s your cure?

Homer knows what it's like...

Man, this has been a big week. Not that I intentionally partied like a bergie in a brewery , but it just so happened that a lot of drinking went down. Usually , after a big night, I get home and strap my mouth to the tap and drink as much Cape Town municipality H2O as I can and promptly pass out (clothed) on my bed.

This usually keeps the headache at bay upon waking the next day… But last night was one of those nights were the bar had some insane drink specials , and when I finally made it back home , in all my drunk wisdom, I forgot to perform the Hangover saving ceremonial drink. The morning sucked. And it’s still sucking even as I type this… Im searching for a cure…

Dizzys gets Mixed and Blended…

Winter's looking special...

Here at NoBucks , we’re quite fond of the humble Camps Bay bar otherwise known as Dizzys. Their anything goes , laid back style, good tunes, great pizza and fun people that make you feel welcome. It’s a bar where you can be yourself without the “Camps Bay”ism you usually get on the main drag. The Locals are always entertaining, and the bar always has some pretty sweet deal happening. But this winter, it’s getting a whole lot better…

Castle Taps at Dizzys are Best!

Full Details on Mix ‘n Blend and a R200 bar tab after the jump >>
