When looking for that perfect Bloody Mary, you need to go to a city famous for bad hangovers. It’s not that hard of a math problem to arrive at the answer of Las Vegas. If you ask the locals where to head for a morning pick-me-up, it’s Hash House A Go Go. They serve two varieties—the original and the BLT (bacon rimmed)—at their three locations around the city.
