There has been a sufficient increase of umpteen bars over the time within the city and that means the crowds have grown larger. Partying is one of the frequent leisure interests of most campusers and socialites. For those who have “never” been to the bar you haven’t missed a lot from the usual amusement. Here’s a general precept on what one should know before going to the bar for the first time. Laze and take a seat.
1. Always move with enough money and know what to spend it on
First thing to consider before moving out to the bar is definitely the money. If you do not get anyone to buy you drinks throughout the night, will you be able to manage on your own? Will the money buy you drinks and cover your transport costs? however even though you are just invited by a friend to hang and have been promised a night out housing,move with extra money so that you don’t get wrecked or even look like an actual burden. Get your self another drink if need be and take care of yourself just like any other person.
2.Know the Bar language
“Bottle or draft?” “Single or double?” “Keep the tab open or close it?” If you assume that getting a drink at a bar is as simple as asking for a beer, you’re going to have a bad time. When you order a drink, the bartender/waiter or waitress will probably throw some other questions at you. The last thing you want to do is stare at them like a half wit because you don’t know what he just said. Familiarize yourself with basic bar terms and common drinks so you can save yourself the embarrassment.
3.When it comes to drinks, keep it simple
If you want everyone in a bar to think you’re a jackass, don’t order something you are not familiar with.The bar is not the right place to try out new drinks alone cause you won’t like what it will lead to. Order something simple to avoid pissing off the bartender and the hoard of people behind you waiting to be served. If you don’t want a beer, order a quick and easy cocktail like a vodka tonic, cranberry vodka, Jack and Coke, Smirnoff gin and tonic water, or rum and Coke. You’ll most likely have to experiment with drinks to find something that doesn’t make you feel like you’re drinking rubbing alcohol.
4.Nobody cares how drunk you are
The single best way to make sure everyone in the entire bar knows you’ve never had a drink before is to broadcast how drunk you are. Newbies have a greater tendency to make the fatal mistake of thinking that people actually give a crap about the number of drinks they’ve had and think they are being watched. If you want to unify with the rest of the bar crowd, just don’t make a scene.
5.Everyone is just there to have a good time but be conscious.
If you are the shy kind and may not know how to loosen up, the bar could be the wrong place for you with all the loud music and half drunk souls, it can get enormous withal don’t be such a bore by staying on your phone pretending to text or tweet while in the bar, all you have to do is blend in with the crowds or else go home and sleep. Lighten up the moment, put your groove on and have a little fun.
If you’re in your 20’s, Dress like it,don’t dress otherwise; like you’re 15, that will get u bounced instantly. Ladies, don’t show up to any bar in six-inch heels and something you won’t be comfortable in them throughout the night. Trust me you won’t have a good time.You can wear something eye-catching and still avoid sticking out like a sore thumb. For the guys who will take any excuse to roll up in your shorts and home sandals you won’t want to waste your time.
7.Everyday is a bar day.
Bars, lounges,pubs these days have drawn to themes, concepts, ideas on how to keep the party people hooked up on the grill and mix. Girls in the city Tuesdays,cocktail Thursdays, silent disco Fridays, oldies Thursday are the most common themes around town.This helps one to know if there is a themed attire or special offer and also keeps you up to date with upcoming events.
8.Don’t and avoid to start fights
This advice is pretty self-explanatory, but for whatever reason, there’s always that one guy who will be both too high and paranoid with any excuse to start a fight. This guy will yell at you like you just burned his house down for something vapid like accidentally touching his elbow or asking for way to pass. Don’t be that person, and don’t get into fights with him unless your goal is to be kicked out of the bar and be thoroughly beaten.
9.Mislay the car keys, phones or any valuables either at home or with someone that is probably going to stay sober the whole night. The bar is not the safest place to own anything and unless one has to you shouldn’t have to carry any valuables to the bar because theft is the highest compute neither drive to the bar unless you plan on staying sober. You’ll be tempted to drive home after you’ve been drinking, and this is never a good idea. Paying for an Uber or taxify is always the better route over a police arrest or even worse, the loss of someone’s life.
10.Don’t be afraid to say “no”
You’ll probably have that one friend who wholeheartedly believes you should drink until you can barely function. Despite the fact that you’re already trashed and feel messed up, this friend will pressure you to drink more. If you deny the next round of drinks, this friend will give you grief until you give in. I use the term “friend” very loosely in this context because this person sucks, and I question why they still have any friends at all. I don’t know what this person finds so appealing about ending their night outs with their head hanging over a toilet or being carried out of the bar by bouncers but they have a tendency to get everyone else involved.
If you think you’ve had enough to drink, you’ve had enough to drink period. Just say “no.” Nobody with an ounce of maturity is going to judge you if you feel like you shouldn’t have another drink, more so you have to be responsible for your actions at all times.
