13 Ways To Prepare For That All Night Bar Crawl

Bar crawls are heavenly experiences, but it takes a lot to get your mind and body ready to party. Here are the tasks you need to complete before setting out on your crawl and when you find yourself hungry along the journey throughout your city, stop into a T.G.I.Friday’s® for some nourishment.

1. Pick A Reason To Crawl

No one really cares what it is. But you’ve got to have one. Otherwise, it’s just another night out hitting the bars.

2. Get Hydrated

Pretend you’re an athlete if it’ll make you feel better.

3. Make Some T-Shirts

It’ll make it a lot easier for the search party to find you later on.

4. Make A Map Of All The Spots You Plan To Hit

What a loser they were. Look how much cooler you are without them.

Yes, you swore you’d never do it again. And no, as a matter of fact, we don’t believe you.

7. Clear Your Schedule

You’re definitely not going to want to engage in activities of any kind for a few days.

Who knew you’d memorized the entire One Direction catalog?

9. Load Up On Cash

Credit cards lead to buying rounds of shots for your “new best friends.”

10. Install “Find My iPhone”

The first thing the person that finds your phone does is scroll through your photos and texts. Horrified yet?

11. Be Sure And Extend An Invitation To Your Parents

Nobody loves a party more than they do. And they can still drink you under the table.

12. Think About What Tattoo You’d Get

Before you inevitably end up at a tattoo parlor at 4 a.m., it’s good to know what you want before going in. Otherwise you’ll end up with a portrait of Elvis inked on your shoulder. And he’ll be fat.

13. Grab Something To Eat

Food helps prevent hangovers. Food with beer in it works even better. So grab a Craft-Beer Cheeseburger at Friday’s®. Your taste buds will thank you. So will your head.

Drink responsibly. Always use a designated driver.
