Viva Las Vegas

Would you like your IV straight up or on the rocks? A Las Vegas doctor has equipped a bus to rove the streets of the strip and pick up revelers who have drunk too deeply of the city's nightlife. For $90, the Hangover Heaven bus offers an IV drip of saline and B and C vitamins.

The woman reportedly passed out while eating, drinking and smoking.
