The 3 "Knows" To A Successful Night Out

by Samantha Sherlock

When you plan a night out with friends you all want to make sure you’re having a good time and the night goes on without a hitch. So, to ensure that you do enjoy your night we have three simple suggestions for you. Follow these nightlife "knows" and you'll have a great time without fail.

Know Where You’re Going
The worst way to spend your night out with friends is to head out to an unknown destination. Pick a bar or club to go to before you start your night otherwise, you’re headed for trouble. If you all can’t collectively decide on a place to go then pick a venue that's familiar where you always have a good time. Figuring out a place to go on the spot can turn into a night of headaches. Some may not have enough money with them or they may not be dressed right. Making a decision on the destination is essential to have a successful night out.

Know What You’re Spending
Ever wake up in the morning after a night out and find a receipt that says you spent $60 on shots of patron? I have…and I don’t recommend it. You want to know how much money you spend in one night so you don’t wake up hung-over and broke. Before night falls head to the ATM, see how much is in your account and then you can judge from there how much to take out. If you become very generous when drinking, leave your debit and credit cards at home. Trust me…you’ll be glad you did.

Know Your Exit Strategy
One of the worst situations to be in is to realize all of your friends left without you and now you’re at the bar alone. Before getting to the bar, quickly go over your exit plan for the end of the night. Are you all leaving together? How are you getting home? Is there a designated driver? You want to make sure that you don’t leave anyone behind, especially by themselves. If you all tend to split up during the night just make sure to check in with each other so you know you’re all safe. All of you will have a better night knowing that you aren’t going to be stranded at a closed bar at 4AM Sunday morning.
