Seeking the perfect make-ahead drunk food

My little brother is turning 21 on Saturday, and I'm taking him out for a hopefully epic Baltimore pub crawl. It's my sisterly duty to take care of the kid, so I'd like to have some terrific, crave-able, hangover-fighting grub in the fridge ready to heat up at whatever time we stumble back to my place. I was thinking I'd make a stove-top mac n' cheese with bacon, but I'd love to hear other suggestions. Thanks all!

      1. Wow, I can't wait to hear the responses to this thread. I just know it's going to be good.

        I don't have a specific suggestion just yet, but I will throw out there that when I've been drinking, I do best (as far as limiting repercussions goes) with starchy things - bread, potatoes, etc, and not too much fat. I have been at events where all there was was wings and booze, and let me tell you, that is not a good combination. At least, not in my stomach.

        1. Pizza, hot or cold. Or my favorite, fried egg sandwiches. The mac and cheese sounds awesome too!

            I was going to say order a pizza prior to going out and stick it in the firdge. Nothing better than late night cold pizza!
