It’s New Year's Day, you roll over, reach for your phone and check the time: it's 8 am. Once you’ve groggily reminisced on your drunken escapades from the night before, the hangover begins to hit. Amid the sharp throbbing behind your eyeballs, you know you have no chance at sleeping this one off.
Instead of finishing off the cold pizza you left out last night, this Jan 1 (a.k.a. National Hangover Day), coconut water brand Vita Coco and Postmates are teaming up to offer some lucky New Yorkers free hangover recovery kits to help you revive after your New Year’s Eve booze-a-thon the right way.
You can try to snag one of these limited supply hangover cure essential kits on the Postmates app starting at 10 am. Inside, you’ll find a made-to-order egg and cheese sandwich from Lenwich, a face mask from Korean skin care brand Banila, Ibuprofen, and Vita Coco’s potassium and magnesium coconut water.
While there’s probably no quick-fix to feeling less lousy, this combination is not too shabby—something glutenous to soak up all the bubbly and coconut water to pull you out of that state of dehydration. Plus, if you’re into The Bachelor, your kit will be delivered to your door by Bachelor in Paradise engaged couple Hannah Godwin & Dylan Barbour. Yeah, you should probably go find your fancy pajamas.
If you’re not one of the lucky souls to get your hands on a kit through the Postmates app, Vita Coco will also have a hangover recovery food truck set up on Cleveland Place (between Kenmare St and Spring St) in Soho on Jan 1, too. It opens at 10 am, so you and your friends can swing by to get a free egg and cheese sandwiches with Vita Coco coconut water while supplies last.
