Here are the Top 5 date things guys shouldn’t do at all if you actually intend on going on another one again. Because as much as you think dressing your best and smelling good is a must…it’s the other little things that you might be doing that won’t get you a call back.
5. COMPLAIN ABOUT PRICES. Yes, food prices are getting high and yes, we are in a recession: but one thing you don’t wanna come off as is the cheapest guy in the world. If you act as if you don’t know how to splurge a little, it could imply that you are stingy about other things…which won’t help you in the end. Solution: check out the prices of the menu/activities before hand, and budget accordingly.
All of us have done some “under the radar” stuff during our childhood, going into Mission Impossible mode in an attempt to keep things from our parents and teachers. It was always easier to do what we were supposed to do and follow the rules; that is always boring to children, so we found ways to make life more complicated. The same can be said about the youth of today, as they get thrills from partaking in the “forbidden.” However, the ante has been upped tenfold with the actions of kids in this day and age.
Five tips to surviving a bar crawl:
Bar crawl tonight? Here are a few things you can do to make tomorrow suck a little less.Drink a glass of milk before you go out.
Milk is like Mother Nature’s Pepto-Bismol. It’s just more of a preemptive strike than a hangover cure. Drinking a glass of milk before you begin your bar crawl will coat the lining of your stomach and slow the absorption of alcohol. This should ensure that you get through at least the first two bars with your friends.
Drinks like Vitamin Water XXX, Vitamin Water Revive and Vita Coco are packed with B vitamins, vitamin C and electrolytes that help your body stay healthy, hydrated and minimize hangovers. Try drinking one before going out, before bed and the next day.

While this has never been proven, bottles can help you keep the amount of alcohol you consume down without anyone noticing. Think about it. A beer is a beer whether you prefer bottle or draft, but if you are going to ten bars in one day, 10 draft pints = 16 oz of beer and 10 typical bottles = 120oz of beer. Bottles will drop your intake by 4 oz, which could make quite the impact on the following day’s activities.
Look like a real man while keeping your alcohol percentage down by drinking Guinness at the bars. Guinness has the reputation of being a high-alcohol content, heavy beer, but try one. It’s smooth, light and only 4% alcohol. So while all your friends will think you’re a real man, you’ll have a better chance of partying through the night.
Have you hit that point in your warrior-crawl where you can barely stomach any more drinking? You need a light, refreshing beer to sober-up on: a Summer Shandy. They’re lower in alcohol percentage – depending on the brand they vary anywhere from 2% – 4% – and they have a nice refreshing lemonade or Sprite flavor that will help revive you and drag you across the finish line.
Also, learn how to take a screen shot and stop taking pictures of your computer with your phone!! Anyway… This little picture has been making its way around Facebook recently(even though this rumor dates back to 2005), I read about three sentences and knew it was absolutely made up. Starbucks is a huge corporation that probably has a PR firm with their own building. And I’m pretty sure in PR 101 they teach you that denouncing the troops is equal to punching a newborn, and this response to the troops would have never happened.The fact that it appears to have come from a chain letter is even more proof. Rule of thumb friends: if something is sent to you by your Aunt Sheila to everyone in her address book, there’s a 99% chance it is all made up- just like in this case.
Forget boring old jell-o shots in boring plastic cups. If you want to impress the ladies and make them forget how drunk they’re actually getting, feed them some of these delicious concoctions.

British people, I swear.) is a blog dedicated to those vodka filled desserts we know and love with a cool new twist. It includes full recipes as well so you can make them for your buddies. Check it out and feel bad about yourself that you are not this creative.
So seeing as the thermometer in my car read 109° earlier this week I guess it’s officially summer. And now that it’s sunny and hot outside it’s time to kick your drinking into summer mode. Jeremiah Weed posted this list of their recommendations for drink of Buzzfeed earlier this week and, seeing as I officially got my bartending certification earlier this week (or as they called it “mixology qualification”), I figured it’d be worth looking over the list. So let’s browse, shall we?
“You need to eat less”, “You need to eat healthier,” blah blah blah. You’ve heard it a thousand times. Fast food and processed products need to be cut from your diet, something you have been repeatedly told. There is so much emphasis on what someone eats, that we almost forget that there is this thing called “drinking” (not in the sense of alcohol). Some of the nutrients that make their way into our body come by way of beverages, in accompaniment of whatever it is that we are consuming. Whether it is a Coke, Pepsi, juice, etc., these drinks are adding in their own contents.
Memorial Day traditionally marks the beginning of summer around the US of A (here in Arizona, T12 headquarters, it marks the point in Summer where it’s so inconceivably hot you pretty much just give up on wearing pants.)
Memorial Day is also the beginning of cookout season, where people with a pool and a grill become the most popular person in their social circle. So get your best swim trunks ready, bathe in some SPF and check out these great ideas for food that would make Jeremy Scott very very mad at you.
When it’s time to drink, it’s time to let loose. For some, that means “balling out” and spending a considerable amount of money on fancy or high end beverages. However, for most, the object is to have the best time without having to spend a lot of funds. We want to find good drinks, ones that actually have some sort of effect on us, but doesn’t eat into food or rent money.
College is a great time in life in which countless memories are created. Friends are made, beverages consumed, and one is primed and shaped for the rest of their lives from these experiences. As some already know, it isn’t all fun and games; trouble raises its head on the other side of the horizon. More specifically, college can be a habitat for legal troubles, troubles that have the potential of affecting the rest of your life (not to mention the upfront costs). There are ways in which you can keep yourself out of trouble, such as being responsible, not drawing extra attention to yourself, not breaking that street sign in an effort to show your inner Hulk, etc. However, not everyone alludes trouble, so if you find yourself in some hot water, here are some tips that could be helpful (could be, not guaranteed).
