Here Are Some Essentials To Make The Night A Success
Establish a Base Camp
When you get to the bar quickly establish a place where you will be hanging out for the majority of the night. If you can get a table, fantastic. If you can only get a corner of the bar, then you are going to have to make due. Make sure the guy celebrating his birthday sees and gets familiarized with base camp before he gets to wasted. His sober familiarity with the spot will allow for the drunk version of him to navigate back to camp relatively easily.
Keep Him Under Surveillance
It his night, not yours, so do not get upset when you are required to do a little babysitting from time to time throughout the night. As funny as it may seem when your buddy is out slapping every girls ass, the joke will be quickly turned around when one of those girls has a 6’5 boyfriend who looks like he is fresh out of prison. Keep him corralled and under control, he is going to feel like a Rock Star, unfortunately nobody else is going to feel the same about him. At the end of the night, it is your responsibility to make sure he makes it to his bed. Never leave the birthday boy on his own before he gets to sleep. Losing a drunk friend is one of the funniest and scariest things that can happen to a group of friends.
Buy His Drinks
If you know that Rye turns your buddy into a complete idiot who tries to fight the world, then maybe it’s a good idea for you to buy his drinks. If he is already hammered and asking for more to drink, get the bartender to water down his next one, or order him something with a low alcohol content. As long as your buddy has something in his hand he will be satisfied.
Do Not Get Birthday Drunk Yourself
Do not keep pace with the birthday boy, it will only end poorly. One drunk idiot is enough of a burden for all of your friends, do not make them deal with two imbeciles. Be careful, because everyone else is using the methods above to watch the birthday boy, so if you get out of control it go unnoticed until it is too late and you are sitting down puking inside the bar, or dance battling the homeless guy outside the bar.
