Blowfish, created in the West Village, is promised to get rid of all your hangover symptoms within 15 to 30 minutes." FOX News Radio (12/4, Rappoport) added that that the drug "combines aspirin, caffeine and a stomach soother into two effervescent pills to be taken the morning after a night of partying."
