Before – During – After (Safe Party Tips)

Party is in our name and partying is our game. We are here to help you book, organize and spread the word about your amazing parties. With that – we want to be sure you are breakin’ it down in a safe manner. We aren’t your parents so we refuse to tell you what to do or how to do it & we won’t bore you with horrifying statistics – but we are going to make some simple (mainly common sense) suggestions. Be sure to comment below & give out tips you didn’t see here!

Before

Pregame (Yup!)

  • Eat before you party
  • Protein slows down the absorption rate of alcohol

Eggs, chicken, fish – load up on that protein baby!

Getting there (Rely on yourself, not on technology)

  • If you are using public trans, look up directions & write that shit down; you never know when your phone might fail you

Getting home (Rely on yourself, not on your friends)

  • Cabs, buses and trains are great if you are in a large city – utilize them and know where they are & what times they run
  • If you aren’t in an area with public trans drive yourself or designate a friend you KNOW will respect the position
    • Being drunk for 2 more hours is not worth endangering the lives of yourself, your friends and others

Common sense advice: Know your destinations, who you are with & the areas you are going to be in.  

Google maps are amazing as are city transit sites such as transitChicago.com.

During

Keep your eye on the prize (Your drink, not the hottie buying them)

  • We know drinks can get pricey but if you suspect yours has been tampered with simply buy another

Don’t let the creeper drag you home

Keep your other eye on your surroundings

  • Are you still with your posse or have you been stranded? If stranded – find out where they are and the safest, most well-lit way, to meet back up

Pace your damn self

  • It takes your liver 1 hour per drink to process – altering with water is not deemed “uncool”
  • Try and stick with one
    • In college we lived by the one color rule or “Liquor before beer you’re in the clear; beer before liquor you’ve never been sicker.”
    • Different sugar levels are what makes you feel sick so if you are switching back and forth you are going to feel it later

Common Sense advice: Use your judgment. Had too much to drink? Slow it down. In an area you don’t feel comfortable? Leave. Lost your friends? Send a text and some phone calls & stay in one place. If nothing else, call a cab and head home. 

After

The dirty truth: Alcohol Poisoning

  • Alcohol poisoning is very real – don’t be “too cool” to point it out
    • If you think you (or a friend) has alcohol poisoning call 911 or go to the hospital
    • Lay you friend on their side so they don’t choke
    • Don’t let your friend “sleep it off”

Passing out at the bar is not sexy & possibly dangerous

Watch out for friends

  • Be sure each friend gets a safe ride home

Rely on yourself (not on friends/hookups)

  • Your friends may love you but they are partying too; have a plan in case you get separated
  • Don’t walk alone (this goes for men too). If you HAVE to
    • Carry Mace or pepper spray in your hand. Zip up your purse. Be on the phone with someone. Hold your keys through your knuckles. Stay in well lit areas. Stay on main, busy roads – no alleys or random short cuts through the park. Keep your wits about you by not listening to head phones while walking the streets alone or on public trans – know your surroundings.

Hydrate

  • Water counteracts the dehydrated feeling that will give you your next-day hangover

Drink me!

Promise the next posts will be light & fun again – we just want to be sure you are all alive and well enough to book & enjoy more parties! Cheers.
