On today's River Mornings (8-19) With Melissa & Jack:

Anti-Hangover Beer -
Researchers (in Australia) say they have made a beer that will keep people from getting dehydrated while drinking it. They’ve added electrolytes to the beer, which are minerals in the body that are lost during dehydration. Jack’s idea: Cut out the middle man and just start mixing gin in with his morning Gatorade, although we don’t recommend you take his advice.
American Music Fest –
Is August 30th
in VA Beach and features Third Eye Blind, Fuel, Barenaked Ladies, Carbon Leaf and Daughtry. Melissa and Jack are hooking you up with passes all week.
Hollywood Hot Mess –
In an interview that aired Sunday with Oprah Winfrey, Lindsey Lohan declared that this, her sixth stint in rehab, has put her on a path of recovery. Lohan said she's in "a different head space" now and vowed to stay clear-headed and focused in the future. She said a comfort level with her past chaotic life fed her much-reported partying and her brushes with the law. She also admitted to using cocaine 14-15 times in the past. We hope she stays clean, although without Lohan getting in trouble there wouldn’t even be a Hollywood Hot Mess segment.
