You made it! Again! Were you feeling boxed in this week? We understand. Deadlines, projects and meetings got you down? Make up for it this weekend and party outside the box. How, you might ask? We’ll break it down for you with some surreal party tips to help you keep it real through the weekend.
1) River party!
Pack a bunch of coolers, pile onto a bunch of rafts/inner tubes/etc. and float down a lazy river with your buds. Tether the rafts together, and enjoy sandwiches and beverages as your party constantly relocates. Bring a portable waterproof stereo and let nature take you on a voyage of the mind and body! Well, at least a voyage of the body; you may want to let your mind check out ‘til Monday. We understand.
2) Biking Bar Crawl
This can get as serious as you’d like it to. We recommend getting as many people together as you can, printing t-shirts, and incorporating a scavenger hunt. Here’s how it works: bike from bar to bar as a group, stopping at each bar for one or two drinks, and make the ultimate destination a desirable place to post up for an afternoon/evening (i.e. the beach, downtown). Make a list of items to find at each bar and the winner or winning team gets drinks at the last bar, all night, on the losers’ tabs. Safety first! Use a helmet.
Set up three (or more) different yards in the same neighborhood with all the accoutrements (food, drink, trashcans, glow sticks?) and schedule portions of a party at each one. Hang for a couple hours and then relocate the whole party. To spice it up, have different themes at each house with live music according to theme, i.e. the first house is folksy, the second hip hop, and the last rock ‘n roll. Sky’s the limit. Oh, and make people help you clean up before they leave. A group effort gets it done in five minutes.
And, there are infinite possibilities. Have a party in Earth’s orbit! Why not? Have a party in perfect darkness or a sensory deprivation chamber. Grand canyon? But, enough about that. It’s Friday. Less talk, more party.
