In apparent anticipation of The Hangover, a new movie
going straight to DVD coming to a theater near you on June 5, the Northglenn-based Allied Advertising and Public Relations Group is trying to convince us that after lubricating ourselves with booze tonight, we're going to wake up tomorrow morning (presumably hungover) craving brunch and movie schwag.
I'm down with the hangover brunch, and so are Dixons Downtown Grill, at 1610 16th Street, and Steuben's, 523 East 17th Avenue, both of which are hosting a Hangover brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 30. If you can drag your ass outta bed, you'll also get a few freebies, including tickets to an advanced screening of the movie, which, by the way, incorporates everything from a rooster, tiger and douchebag to a newborn baby and stun guns. (I made myself watch the trailer.)
In other words, looks like a frat boy prick flick that can only be swallowed with a bloody Mary and biscuits and gravy. Good thing there's brunch.
