The Pregame by aihaozhe2


You constantly hear it every time you go out or make plans "stop by my house and
we'll pregame then head out". This clubbing phenomenon has become in itself part of
the whole clubbing experience and thus deserves some attention with some pregame
and pre-clubbing tips.

Lets face it drinks are not exactly the cheapest thing in a club, in fact you sometimes
leave the club feeling violated after a night of drunken credit card spending and ATM
withdrawals with 9 dollar service fee's. So to lessen this problem to a degree we all
know the best thing to do is to get a headstart on your drinking at your pregame party.
Have a few friends get a bottle or two prior to entering the club, this will help you get
a headstart and probably cut your drinking bill by half.

Another tip related to the drinking situation is something that i have learned the hard
way. Ask for drink prices BEFORE you order a drink, because as the night progresses
and your blood alchohal level rises with every hour that passes you start ordering
drinks left and right and when the time comes that the bartender says 15 dollars for
the shot you just downed and you reach in your pockets only to feel air you have a
serious problem if your friends are nowhere to be found. So always remember ask for
drink prices and make sure you have the funds before downing a shot.

When you finally arrive at the club, you have to accept the fact that it might just be a
terrible night for the club you have chosen and your better off leaving and going to
another spot. The worst thing to do is go to the front of the line and ask a bouncer how
it is inside. Do you really think that they are going to say "dont waste your money, it
sucks" ?. No they are not, they are going to tell you that its just getting started, or its
packed, or the music is great or some cheap excuse to get you inside to make them
more business. The most relaible way to find out is just find someone that is leaving
and has just walked out the door, stop them for a second and ask them their how it is
inside, chances are they will tell you their honest opinion unless they are trying to
screw you over or have some fun.

If the case is that their is a line across the street, and you dont have any connections to
skip it your next best chance is to start walking up and down it and hope to god you
find someone you know. When you find someone start making casual conversation
and then get you and your group closer and finally just get together with them in the
line, make sure you have conversation flowing the whole time between you both as to
not pay attention to other people in the line.

A lot of times you will have people standing outside the club that claim to be the
almighty promoters when more then likely they have to ensure they get themselves in
much less get you or anyone you know in. Dont ever think a promoter will actually do
something special for you if you do not know them, many times a promoter will offer
some kind of discount, or say he will make u skip the line only to get you there but
when it comes down to it they wont help you out with anything and your stuck
waiting in a line. So save some time and dont listen to any promoters magic offers.
