What's the best way to help a hangover? Brunch, obviously. But what's the best way to totally cure a hangover? Well, that's be drunch, the magical fusion of drinking and the meal of brunch. Food and alcohol take away your hangover pains, filling you up and making your head start throbbing with some pain-relieving drank. Brunch spots are everywhere in Montreal, but drunch isn't quite so widespread.
