Most people wake up on New Years morning feeling rather pickled from the previous nights festivities. If you can manage to pry yourself out of bed or off the couchor the floorthat day, the city of Huntington Beach has something for what ails ya. Start off with a pancake breakfast at 9:30 a.m.theres sure to be plenty of butter and syrup to get your blood sugar back on track. But its the Pier Plunge at noon that will really get your heart racing. Not an actual jump off the pier (that would be dangerous), but a quick run and dip in the Pacific. Because the best cure for a hangover is submersion in freezing-ass-cold water.
