When hitting these drinking destinations, it's important to know where to go to carb up so the next morning won't be so rough. Many of these late-night spots are burger joints  — which isn't too surprising — but there's also falafel, sausage, pizza, pies and doughnuts for those seeking some calories to pair with alcohol.
