How To Have The Most Epic Night At The Bar

Going out to bars can get boring, so use these ideas to kick it up a few notches! Great stories start with a shot of Jose Cuervo so make the night memorable and Have A Story to tell tomorrow.

1. Be a celebrity for a night

WHAT YOU NEED:
* Friend (preferably one who has visited the inside of a gym)
* Suit
* Sunglasses

THE PLAN
Have your friend pretend to be your bodyguard all night. Make sure there is gratuitous use of the “put one finger in the ear and talk to nobody” move. Besides that…just act like a big shot all night.

If you REALLY want to raise the bar, you can hire the paparazzi to follow you around.

RESULT
Probably a movie deal.

2. Big Back Hunter

WHAT YOU NEED:
* Stickers
* Ninja Hands

THE PLAN
Each person brings a unique set of stickers to the bar. If you can successfully place your sticker on a stranger’s back without him/her noticing, you have claimed them as your trophy. The person with the most trophies wins.

RESULT
Lots of lulz.

3. Become a fortune teller

WHAT YOU NEED:
* Blanket (a suit would work if you have a waxed mustache)
* A venue with outside seating

THE PLAN
Have one of your friends sit mysteriously at the table with a blanket over his head. Announce that you’re offering free fortunes for one night only. Do not forget to make up a really cool name for your future seer.

RESULT
Altering the lives of those around you…at the very least it’s a great icebreaker.

4. Thrift shop everyone

WHAT YOU NEED:
* Spend $50 at the Thrift Shop
* Bar with a Jukebox

THE PLAN:
Purchase the most insane and elaborate thrift shop clothing and head to the bar. When you’re there, put $20 worth of jukebox credits exclusively to play Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” on repeat. Dance your ass off. Every. Single. Time.

RESULT
The first time, the bar loves it. The second time, they’re still dancing. Third time, the harsh reality sets in. Fourth time, it’s all over.

5. Have height for a night

WHAT YOU NEED:
* Elevator Shoes
* Tall Top Hat (optional)

THE PLAN:
With the 5 inch boost from the shoes and the 9 inches from the hat, you’ll find it much easier to get the bartender’s attention. If anyone asks, just tell them you’re traveling basketball magicians or something. For extra effect, find a local pub with really low ceilings.

RESULT
Quick drink service and an appreciation for your natural height.

6. Secret message night

WHAT YOU NEED:
* Invisible Ink Pens
* Bar with a few black lights

THE PLAN:
Channel your inner double agent and use the pens to write secret messages for each other / people at the bar. If you don’t have sensitive skin, you could even write messages ON each other.

RESULT
Hands down the coolest way to get a girl’s phone number.

7. Dopplewaiters

WHAT YOU NEED:
* A bar where the staff wears a mimic-able uniform
* Replica of that uniform

THE PLAN:
Go to the bar wearing the server’s outfit and walk around to other tables to take food orders. Criticize their meal choices, publicly quit, and then sit down immediately to order some food.

RESULT
A job at the bar.

8. Invite your friend’s ex to the bar
