Fourteen hours of solid drinking gave Adam Lijewski one of the worst hangovers he has ever had.

On a scale of 1 to 10, “it was a 12,” he said.

Yet the first thing Lijewski, 30, and his buddies wanted to know, after spending $150 each to cure the side effects of their all-nighter?

“When can we start drinking again?”

After 90 minutes on the Hangover Heaven bus, Lijewski’s headache was practically gone. And even though Dr. Jason Burke recommended a 12-hour break from imbibing, Lijewski was having none of that.

“Alcohol is my friend,” he said.

It is precisely that frat boy attitude that might help Burke, a local anesthesiologist, become a successful hangover guru for tourists who are looking for a fast, easy way to overcome those pesky side effects of drinking too much: headache, de­hydration, nausea and vomiting.

On Saturday, Burke rolled out the first Hangover Heaven bus on the Strip, less than a week after news of its debut went viral. Something about the idea of providing a hangover cure in this fashion resonated with the world. For days, Burke has had to contend with calls from media outlets, would-be customers, hopeful franchisees and even reality show producers.

Everyone wants a ride on the Hangover Heaven bus.

“We couldn’t believe there was something like this out there and we decided we had to try it,” said Lijewski, who was in town with co-workers for their Wyoming company’s sales meetings and awards dinner. Their boss paid the bill for his group’s hangover treatments.
