Odds are, sometime in the next few days you’ll be feeling a familiar set of symptoms: your head will pound, your stomach will churn, and you’ll be asking yourself why — oh whyyyyy — you went for that last drink. ‘Tis the season after all… the season for imbibing. But one Portland company wants to give New Year’s eve partiers an excuse to indulge in that last glass (or three) of champers.
The company Good IV is out there to nurse Portland residents’ hangovers with an artisanal IV drip that anyone can order on January 1. Before you groan all, “good job, Portland” while secretly envying the city’s convenient brand of preciousness, it’s worth pointing out that mobile IV services are a growing nationwide trend. You can find similar services from LA to Vegas to New York.
So what exactly can you expect from a custom IV provider? Good IV touts a complete menu with pricing options that span from $110 to well over $300. There are the “Good Recovery” selections for athletes, the “Good Boy” offerings designed for individuals getting over jet lag or a recent illness, and “Good Day” IVs that offer “everything you need to recover from a night out.” Each of the category’s three tiers of selections offers at least one liter of IV fluid administered by trained staff, plus either anti-nausea or pain relief, specially formulated electrolytes and vitamins, or all of the above.
So go ahead and make bad decisions this New Year’s Eve, Portlanders. Just know that it’s gonna cost you.
Would you go all-in for a custom IV treatment? Let us know @britandco.
