Title: friday night

Friday Night
  • What to do on Friday night?

2
What you can do at Friday night
Man, its Friday. Tomorrow is Saturday, the only
day of the week fully sandwiched by pure
happiness there is no reason to be productive
today. Youve got a solid two days in front of
you to just chill out and catch up if you
absolutely have to, not to mention all of the
festivities youll be partaking in tonight.
Cruise Facebook, Google yourself, spend two hours
on Wikipedia learning about the reproductive
process of snails and the Crimean War. Friday
is the day you are going to spend the rest of the
afternoon contemplating your embarrassing love
for One Direction and filling up virtual shopping
carts youre totally not going to cash out on,
and you are not going to be judged for it.

What you can do at Friday night
  • Cooking a recipe more complicated than microwave
    lunch and pizza order.
  • Were essentially bombarded, by Pinterest and The
    Food Network, notably, with endless ideas for
    food that we stare at for five minutes before
    promptly erasing it from our collective memory.
    Ill never make that, we think, That has more
    than three ingredients. But Friday is the day in
    which you can stay up as late as you want, trying
    all different combinations of sauces and meats
    that make you temporarily feel like some kind of
    bloated, power-crazed royalty. You can feel free
    to nurture a healthy food baby and even share in
    the cooking process with other people, so long as
    they dont set your kitchen on fire. (Keep the
    drunker ones on table-setting duty or something.)
    The thing about making a good dinner from scratch
    is that, aside from it being delicious and a fun
    change of pace, you also feel almost Bear
    Grylls-esque at the end of it, as though you
    could make do with anything, if provided the
    proper spatula.

Having a delicious, overpriced, new for you
drink.
  • Its Friday, its time to start the weekend at
    the crack of five with one of those novelty
    cocktails that come in fishbowl-sized wine
    glasses that middle-aged women like giggling
    about while on cruises. Been dying to try that
    new craft beer? Throw caution to the wind and
    unwind with a few of them. There are few things
    more fulfilling than a slight buzz and an entire
    weekend in front of you with a few friends. Sit,
    sunglasses applied firmly to the face, on a
    terrace at happy hour, looking smug and vaguely
    hostile towards the people who are staring at you
    for thoroughly enjoying the end of your work
    week. Fridays are your days, and if we were meant
    to spend our whole lives caring whether or not
    people thought we were partying too much, we
    would have stayed in our parents houses.
  • Tiered from all these but dont want to stay at
    home? Find something new for you, such as pub
    crawls, roof parties, thematic parties etc.

Getting a number.
  • Im not sure I know what Saturdays and Sundays
    are for, but Friday nights are for going out and
    prowling like youre trying to wipe out some kind
    of endangered species. And how many times do we
    see the beautiful Friday-evening guys still in
    their suits, or the girls laughing coquettishly
    in impenetrable, iron-clad groups of four or
    five, and deeply regret not pursuing that
    conversation with the one who was totally making
    eyes at us? Much better to put yourself out there
    and get turned down who cares? Do a shot or
    something with your friends and laugh it off
    than to go home and berate yourself for being
    such a timid loser. Fridays are the night for
    making poorly-informed, but often incredibly
    fruitful decisions. Tonight is the night to go
    home with a number but dont you dare do it
    quoting that song. You know the one Im talking
    about.

Alone on a Friday Night?
  • Sure, youd rather be spending the evening with
    people, but unless youre due one good night of
    takeout and tv watching (limit 1 per month), put
    down the egg rolls and the remote control,
    consider these options, and dang it, live a
    little! Or, at least do some things youve not
    made time for.
  • Go on a date with yourself Enjoy an evening
    with yourself, appreciate the time you can stay
    alone with your own thoughts.
  • Call/Hang out with family-Some of us dont have
    an issue with keeping up with dear old Mom and
    Dad. Others of us have to be held at gunpoint.
    Consider this your threat. Call your mom. Just
    because. And while youre at it, call your
    grandparents, siblings, and your aunts and
    uncles. Or, even better, go see a family member.
    Of course they drive you crazy, but you dont
    have anywhere else to be tonight, so you can deal
    with your emotional upheaval later in the privacy
    of your own home.

Alone on a Friday Night?
  • Hang out with your married friends - Some of us
    are bad about losing touch with our friends once
    they get married. Sure, they have a lot of
    obligationsa spouse, kids, workbut some of them
    would really love to see us more and would enjoy
    meeting us for dessert or coffee after they help
    their spouse put the kids to bed.
  • Browse a bookstore and dont buy anything (or do)
    - Get a bunch of magazines you never have time to
    read or Steve Jobs biography that you have no
    intention of buying or conduct research in the
    travel section for your summer vacation. Take a
    stack of books to a table in the coffee shop and
    enjoy having time to do something youve been
    putting off for a while. Theres no coffee shop
    in your bookstore? Good for you for not
    contributing to the Monster, but that also means
    youll need to support a small business and buy
    something.
