My mother (and likely, yours as well) always said nothing good happens after 2 a.m. Late-nights at Club Med are very tempting, but if this week’s Wicked Single taught us anything, it’s that Boston bars close “early’ for a reason.
After a botched attempt at double-dating, noted love expertsRachel and Nikki have little desire to go out and troll for men–well, Nikki is game, but Rachel would rather stay in couch mode fielding booty calls from Joe. (Say all you want about not liking a “train wreck,” Joseph, but we don’t see you reaching for the Forbid App just yet.) One late-night conversation leads R & N to venture out for a night of revelry with Joe–guess there’s something about him–and his crew of Chubs and Chelsi, and, like clockwork, mom is proven right. Things go off the rails… fast. Read more…
Cinderella’s time constraints did her just fine, which is why even the biggest party animals should understand that after a certain hour all there’s left to do is turn into a pumpkin-colored alcohol monster.
If you have a problem winding things down on the weekends, behold our WS-inspired dos and don’ts for your next late-night soiree.
DON’T underestimate the skills of your local bartender
Being able to make her own drinks would probably improve Nikki’s nights out. In her first trip to bartending school, Nikki was faced with the sad reality that just because one likes to consume alcohol doesn’t mean he or she has the makings of a fabulous bartender. “It’s not that complicated… every drink’s gonna have a little bit of vodka in it,” she explains to all you novices out there. Tasting a difference between vodka and gin is just a “psychological thing,” anyway.
DO consider the impact your dating life may have on your social circles
“I’m constantly losing friends because of people Joe fucks,” an abnormally sour Chubs says once the tension between Chelsi and Rachel begins to brew. Though it should be known that when it comes to Joe and Rachel’s private activities, the former is taking the Bill Clinton route (“I have not had sex with Rachel”). Suuuuuure.
DO stay open to the possibility of meeting new people
“Somebody like Chubs, like, I can’t believe somebody like that really exists in the world,” Nikki said. She may have had reservations about his sweaty ways, but by the end of the night these two were quite chummy…
Chummy enough to send Rachel into another high-pitched tirade. What say you, Boston Will Schuester look-alike?
