Hangover Special, Hussong’s Cantina & Taqueria

Every culture has its own version of the hangover cure. In Mexican cuisine, there’s nothing quite like pozole, a classic soup that makes the morning after that much easier to bear. Hussong’s version features well-seasoned pulled pork, hominy, tomato, onion and cilantro in a heady broth. The other part of the special is a little hair of the dog: a Ketel One Bloody Mary. The combination makes everything OK.

Secret Pizza at the Cosmopolitan

Half the fun of having pizza at the Cosmopolitan’s super-secret no-name pizza parlor is finding it. Much ado has been made about this nondescript joint hidden down an unmarked hallway (Hint: it’s lined with album covers), but the truth is that the pizza is actually delicious. Hot, gooey and greasy (in a good way) slices and entire pies are served on stacks of paper plates, just like they do it in New York. It’s perfect for a quick lunch or a late-night drunken pit stop—it does stay open until 5 a.m. on weekends. $3 per slice, in the Cosmopolitan, 698-7000.
