After weeks of writing about mixing the perfect cocktails, curing a hangover, and drinking all day, I have some news for you- I’m not 21!
So what do I do for fun, if I can’t even follow my own advice, you ask? Well, when I’m not portraying one of the classic fake ID users, I’m exploring the city beyond the bars (just kidding about the fake ID part). Nightlife isn’t just for those of age, and I am living proof of that.
Just because you can’t drink at a club doesn’t mean you can’t go in. Sites like Under 21 Night Clubs give you a list of clubs and events across the country that don’t require an ID. Also, most hookah bars require those entering to be 18, so you have plenty of opportunities to party like the big kids.
During the summer months, grab a blanket, pack a picnic and go see a movie on the lawn! Cities all over are beginning to bring back the trend of the drive in movie, and you can usually get in for free. Whether you’re with a group of friends or on a date, you’re not going to miss the fact that you didn’t have to show your ID at the door.
Looking for a laugh? Try an open mic night. You can find many events in your area on sites like Open Mikes. You can usually enjoy a nice meal while hearing a joke or two, but make sure not to choke!
Have no fear- being underage in college is not the end of the world! There is plenty to do until your 21st birthday arrives. But, if worse comes to worst, you can always sneak through the back door!
