SUPPORTING THESE GREAT CHARITIES The morning after the night before Hangover business: Chris Stephens-Walker is committed to fixing hangovers with his delivery business Hair of the Dog. Photo: KRISTINA RAPLEY By KRISTINA RAPLEY Greasy chips and a burger are sometimes the only way to cure a hangover. If only you could drag your- self out of bed and face the world. East Aucklanders fear not --HairoftheDogisacom- pany fully committed to your hangover relief. They deliver to all eastern suburbs and are here to ease your pain. Painkillers, water, herbal supplements, deep fried treats, takeaway food and even breakfast in bed are only a phone call away. Husband and wife Teara and Chris Stephens-Walker from Shelly Park started the business last year. Not surprisingly, the idea came up after a few drinks at a New Year's Eve party. We left the day after for a two-week holiday travelling around the North Island so we had some long talks in the car about it,'' Teara says. She is a stay-at-home mum with a background in com- mercial banking and web design, and Chris is a high school teacher. Chris hasn't given up his day job yet but the pair do deliveries themselves on weekends and have employed one person to help with online sales. We had always said we wanted to run our own busi- ness and be more indepen- dent,'' Teara says. We just wanted to do something fun and we've really been enjoying it.'' While they've met some interesting characters along the way they are reluctant to talk about any of the more humorous encounters. Chris says they have been getting really positive feedback and they are keen to take the business all the way. It's a really unique idea and nobody else anywhere in the world is doing what we do,'' he says. For more information visit www.thehairofthedog.co.nz.
