How To… Party In Public At Christmas

CHRISTMAS is pretty much here and you’ll no doubt be going out and getting drunk and dancing and all that fun stuff. However, hate to break it to you, but you’re a nightmare.

You need teaching how to interact with the world when you’re partying through the Yule. So, with that, here’s some helpful tips that will ensure you’re not absolutely loathed by all of humankind through the festive party season.



Chances are, you’ve been complaining about Christmas music on Facebook and Twitter solidly since mid-November. Suddenly, drunk, you get the urge to listen to a classic Christmas pop hit in a pub or bar. There might be a DJ on. You’re hammered at it is only 8pm so the DJs barely got their headphones on. Don’t bellow ‘PLAY SLADE!’ at them because, you terrific berk, they’ll be keeping that in the box ’til around midnight, when everyone is nicely drunk and game for something daft.

And we all know it was you who was sick in the sink. WE ALL KNOW.


Works Do In A Public Bar

So, the work’s do finished and half of you decided to keep your night going? Great. Some of the most fun nights are when those still standing go for more. However, keep in mind that you don’t own wherever lets you in. The bouncers have been kind enough to give you the benefit of the doubt, so don’t start telling the DJ the music is shit, don’t start giving off to the barstaff if they’ve decided you’ve had enough and don’t start singing football songs on the dancefloor while people are having a dance.
