Love is so short and forgetting so long. We dont know if Pablo Neruda was a drinking man, but whether its a hangover of the heart or of the bottle, recovery can be a long and painful road. And theres probably no more epic hangover that the one that shows up on January 1. There are two ways to go about dealing with this situation hair of the dog for those with a strong constitution or caffeine and greasy food. Either way, a nice pub is probably your best bet; theyre quiet, dark, and during the day usually impart a soulful air conducive to splitting headaches and regret. In Broward, Maguires Hill 16, 535 N. Andrews Ave. in Fort Lauderdale opens at 11 a.m. if you are actually awake that early and serves traditional Irish fare along with a traditional Irish sympathy for the curse of the drink. If you live a little farther north, the Blue Anchor British Pub at 804 E. Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach will take good care of you beginning at noon. Call Maguires Hill 16 at 954-764-4453 or the Blue Anchor British Pub at 561-272-7272.
