Charleston is one of the nation's booziest cities. And in some ways it has been since its very foundation. Back then it was rum, and today it's, well, everything from beer to bourbon, mezcal to Grand Ma. Sadly, there's a price to pay for all of this swilling — the dreaded hangover.

You know, like the good old days. — Kinsey Gidick
