03 Jan How to Drink in Montreal (when over 30) and Survive the Weekend
Lets face it we are no longer in our early 20s, (If you are, then skip this article and go to bed with as many women as you can while abusing your body as much as possible) we can’t drink insane amounts of alcohol multiple nights in a row. We see it time and time again, clients’ multiple night bachelor parties start off with a bang and by the next day half can’t make it out of bed. Their second taste of Montreal nightlife bottles at the club turns into a night of room service and PPV at the hotel.
As someone who drinks on the job, I’ll give you some (legal) tips to make sure you make it through the entire bachelor party:
Don’t Start Drinking Too Early
I’ve seen this scenario play out too many times: a group checks into the hotel and heads straight to the hotel bar and starts pounding drinks. While some people can pace themselves, most can’t. I also find that drinking and then stopping is one of the worst things you can do. Don’t be the guy they have to throw in the cab or the guy who can’t make it out of bed!
Say No to Shots before Midnight
Shots always seem like a good idea, however the purpose of shots is to get you drunk as fast as possible. Why else do you always order shots when girls are around? Save the shots till midnight for girls that don’t know any better.
Vodka Soda Is Your New Best Friend
It’s not just for women with eating disorders, it’s for pros. Look at anyone who works in the nightlife industry and tell me what they drink. Vodka soda. Vodka tends to make you the least hungover and the club soda helps hydrate you. Granted none of this is backed up by science.
Sleep In and Get Your Own Bed
Sleep is important to you and your group. I strongly advise against any activities prior to 11AM the next day. The less planned, the better (However, these daytime activities will help make the bachelor party more memorable.). Also, if your group has decent funds (i.e an extra $50-100), try to book double occupancy. When you are in bed hungover, you will be glad you have your own bed, unless you prefer to get “dutch ovened”.
Stash the Room with Hangover Supplies BEFORE Going Out
All reason and logic goes out the window when you are drunk (luckily for my sex life, this applies to women too), therefore stock the room with all the hangover aids and essentials (tons of water/Gatorade/coconut water, B vitamins, Tylenol, etc.) before going out. Or if you prefer, we can do it for you with our Rider Services.
