It?s watermelon and vitamins
By RENEE REDMOND
BREAKFAST at Dave Brammah place this morning will be water- melon and vitamins and, for any- one who can handle it, scrambled eggs. The 29-year-old musician was preparing for a big New Year's Eve yesterday at his Byron Bay home, with friends Rebecca Wood and Liz Wane, from Perth. "There's a crew of about 10 and we're all meeting here at 7pm. We'll be home tomorrow at some point," he said. "I'll be drinking straight, good quality tequila. It's my usual drink. I only ever mix my drinks when I'm drunk, and I never have lemon and salt with the tequila because salt dehydrates you and the alcohol is already do- ing enough." Dave said the New Year's Eve plan was to start at the Byron street parade, heading to the Bud- dha Bar, then to the beach and, finally, hopping on a bus and heading to Mullumbimby for the
Super Freaky Kinky party. "I think tomorrow it will be watermelon for breakfast, or scrambled eggs for anyone who can handle it," he said. Dave said after a big night he drinks heaps of water and goes to the beach for a swim. "There's something about the salt water that makes you feel better," he said. "Juices are also pretty good, if you can handle the noise of the blender." Dave said he always has a big supply of Naytura Effervescent vi- tamin B and C General Well-Being tablets, to take before and after he goes out. "They make you feel like you've had a full night's sleep," he said. Rebecca avoided hangovers by taking vitamin B6, drinking plen- ty of water and going for a swim next morning. "I like to eat a pizza that day and raw oysters are good," she said. "You can overdose on vita- mins. Don't have a double shot of wheatgrass on an empty stomach when you're hung over!
