Turn that dusty Twister board into a game of spills and thrills. Designate a certain drink amount for every color on the spinner. For example, blue is two shots, red is a shotgun, yellow is a screwdriver, etc. Before moving spaces, each lucky participant must sip, guzzle or chug down their drink. Hint: To prevent any gut spilling action, always remember the golden rules: Liquor before beer, you’re in the clear; beer before liquor, never been sicker!
2. Talk Like Borat
Why not create your own cultural experiment by transforming your vocal cords into the fine grammatical and politically incorrect lingo of our favorite tourist — Borat! Want to push the envelope? Look up unusual customs (or just let the alcohol do the talking) to turn a typical Saturday night dinner into a comical improv? But let’s refrain from involving the authorities. “We have deal?”
3. Throw a Theme Party
Parties are fun and all, but theme parties are way more fun! Think costume, ‘80s or even “Rubik’s Cube” (everyone wears multiple solid colors and must come away from the evening in an outfit of just one color). The only rule to remember when throwing a theme party is that everyone MUST follow the theme, or they can’t join the festivities. After all, “party pooper” is never a popular party theme.
4. Take in a Musical
If you have never been to Broadway or even explored your local theater district, now is the time! Once you’re surrounded by the cool sets, elaborate costumes and booming orchestra, musicals are actually pretty fun (even for guys!). If you’re still having trouble with the idea, think of it like an interactive movie experience. You might be
surprised by how into it you get AND you’ll get the bragging rights of a cultured theater buff.
5. Haunted Mansion
Halloween may only be once a year, but that spooky feeling can easily be recreated through some good old adventure hunting. All you have to do is google allegedly haunted mansions in your area, pile some friends into a car and go searching for the scary locals. Contests such as, “Who can go the closest to the house,” make this activity much more interesting.
6. Do It Up ‘50s St yle
Turn an ordinary movie and a dinner night into a retro inspired rendezvous. Rent a vintage Chevy, put on that poodle skirt or slick back your hair and turn on some Jerry Lee Lewis to get the night a swinging while on the way to the drive- in! P.S.: This is a great way to impress a sweet date.
7. Flip, Sip or Strip
The game is best with 3-5 people, but more and the game will last longer. The rules are simple. Flip a coin and while it is in the air, call heads or tails. If you guess right, pass the coin to your right. If you guess wrong, pass the coin to your left and either take one article of clothing off (anything that is a pair counts as one item) or drink a shot. One catch, you cannot do the same thing (sip or strip) more than twice in a row.
8. TP Revenge
While we don’t recommend full-scale vandalism, toilet papering your friend’s, enemy’s or frienemy’s pad can be a relatively harmless way to have some fun and/or exercise a little vengeance when necessary (like getting your prof’s place as payback for that low grade). You and your friends will get a kick out of donning all black and dodging nosey neighbors while getting in touch with your devious side.
9. Ignite the Senses
Take a normal dinner and turn it into a complete sensory experience! Have someone create tasty foods or order some random items from various restaurants and eat (without knowing in advance what will be served) in pitch darkness, either by shutting the blinds, or using a basement. Shut your mind, close your eyes and let your tongue do all the tasting.
10. Spin the Bottle
Here’s a college spin on a childhood game. Everyone has a drink or a beer on-hand and chugs the contents of their drink until the bottle stops spinning. When the bottle stops, after the spinner has finished their drink, he/ she loads a fat, drunken wet kiss on the lips of the victim. Get that Chapstick ready!
11. Gay Bar Night
Whether you’re gay, straight or a-sexual, anyone that likes to go out and have fun knows you have to experience a gay bar at least once. If you’re a girl, it’s a great spot to have a fun girls night without getting groped on the dance floor, and if you’re a straight dude, this is the perfect spot to loosen up with friends (and maybe increase your odds with that cute straight chick across the bar).
12. Skinny Dipping
This is a must on a melancholy Saturday night. Throw away your inhibitions, get that fake tan, if necessary, and take a dive in your nearest water source. Whether you want to be the next Michael Phelps or Natalie Coughlin, you only live once, so take the plunge!
13. You’re on Candid Camera!
Document a night of mayhem with a mini camcorder for added laughs the next morning. Once everyone has had a chance to get a drink or two in them, ask for their best “Superman” dance or “Thriller” impersonation. Next morning, throw some popcorn in the microwave, grab some Advil for the hangover, sit back and enjoy the night all over again as you watch you and your friends make total asses of yourselves in the sobering daylight of your living room. Maybe it’ll even make YouTube’s top 10 list!
14. International Potluck
Bored of the usual pizza or take out on a Saturday night? Why not create an international potluck? Gather a handful of friends, ask them to make a traditional dish, exquisite cocktail or order something exotic from their
favorite local restaurant and enjoy the night with friends and good food. Plus, a potluck means you can have a fun party without blowing your budget!
Is you’re lower back getting tired of the weekly booty poppin’ and shakin’? Why not get a totally body workout by going Salsa dancing? With its sensual movements and dangerous hip action, maybe you’ll finally learn the right moves to snag that cute guy or girl you’ve been dying to ask out.
With fall semester on the roll, balancing school, work, friends and family can be a load on your adventurous side. Take a break from the library, gather some friends, dig out your dusty tent and throw out the week’s stress by driving over to the nearest campsite (the beach is highly recommended) for a night under the stars. What’s better than spending a Saturday night circled around the campfire and roasting some smores with your besties?
With fall settling in you might come across a night where it’s too cold to go outside, or too wet to play a decent game of beer pong. So why not drink along with the hilarious comical flick Clue? The plot of the game is to take a drink during the following occurrences: Someone looks at the maid’s breasts, an accusation is made, someone dies or you hear thunder.
18. Make The Ultimate Mix CD
This might not be the most exciting way to spend a Saturday night, but the result will last for many Saturday nights to come. Put on your thinking cap and create the ultimate mix CD filled with those special tracks that make you laugh, cry or bust a move. Whether its for a road trip you are planning or for a friend’s party, chances are that if you really work hard at making the best mix of your favorite tunes, your friends will be asking you to burn them copies. If you want to show off, come up with a clever theme to go with the person or event you making the mix for (think songs that remind you of your freshman year for a graduation present for your best bud).
19. Outdoor Screening
Break out your parent’s old film projector or rent one from your school’s film department and rent a reel of your favorite flick. After you set everything up in your backyard or communal courtyard, invite your friends to your very own outdoor screening. Think how much scarier Jurassic Park or Hitchcock’s The Birds would be when watched in the great outdoors.
20. Sing Your Heart Out
It’s time to start thinking of your stage name—take a group of friends and go hit up a karaoke bar! A
couple of beers and you’ll all be belting out “Sweet Caroline” in front of your 100 new closest friends. Just make sure someone brings a camera because this will be a night you might have trouble remembering, but you definitely won’t want to forget.
21. Go To A Carnival
Now that you’re all grown up, your odds of winning that balloon toss and scoring that huge teddy bear that falls apart on the ride or home or a fabulously outdated ‘NSYNC poster are just that much better. Be it with a cute date or a group of your best friends, sometimes it’s just more fun to pretend that you’re a kid again.
23. Have A Hot Dog Eating Contest
Combine your love of hot dogs with your competitive spirit and you get a night of hilarious, messy, all-American fun. Keep a cup of Sprite by your side just like the pros (for easier chewing, of course) and try your hand at the “Kobayashi shake”— your friends won’t know what hit ‘em.
24. Bake A Pie
Have midterms coming up? Take the ultimate study break and call Grandma for that secret family recipe—we promise, nothing quite does the trick like down-home comfort food. Studying just got a little bit sweeter!
25. Learn HTML
Ok, so maybe you can’t do this in just one Saturday night, but think of all the doors that you might open up if you just buckle down and learn that web code already. Think of all the useless information the internet is missing without your website contribution… and it’s a plus when you hit the job market.
26. Host A Sleepover
We’re not talking sleeping bags and makeovers exactly (though those are fun too), we’re thinking a more grown-up sleepover… as in co-ed. Invite your best buddies over, and tell them to bring some extra bedding because they will be crashing for sure. You can stick to the usual sleepover favorites like movie marathons and board games or you can turn it up a notch and break out the booze—no need for a D.D. tonight. Chances are, unlike your middle school days, you won’t be the only one in that sleeping bag.
27. Rent A Party Bus
Whether it’s for a birthday or the end of finals, a party bus is the perfect way to celebrate in style. Make your friends fork over the cash (if you get enough people it’s totally doable) and rent a party bus for a full night of club hopping. It’s well worth the expense since no one has to drive or look for parking, and you all look like rock stars when you roll up to the club.
28. Learn A Song On An Instrument
Ever fantasized about being in a band, but never even come close to touching a guitar? Tonight is the night to realize your destiny and give your inner musician some playtime. Even if you learn just the intro to the easiest Beatles song on the face of the planet, that would be something to brag about and might encourage you to learn more.
29. Come Up With A List Of Million Dollar Ideas
Yes the whole “college thing” is supposed to give you one of those careers everyone raves about, but if you want to make your millions right out the gate, now is the time to get those plans in motion. Take some time to write out your “million dollar ideas” — the inventions you know will allow you to rake in the dough and retire early (just think how good George Foreman has it).
30. Get A Tattoo
What better time to be “bad” than when you’re bored? If you’re in it for the cool factor that washes off in a couple of days or if you’re daring enough to get some permanent ink, make sure you’re willing to live with a giant Marvin the Martian tattoo before you take the plunge.
31. Play The Office Drinking Game
Every time Michael Scott says, “That’s what she said,” Jim plays a trick on Dwight or someone says “Dunder Mifflin,” you drink. What better way to watch one of the most hilarious shows on TV?
32. Clothes Swap
With a college budget and lifestyle, who has time to go shopping anymore? Why not break from the usual and swap clothes with a friend, or even better, a huge group of friends. Have each person bring 5-6 items (like jeans, sweaters, shoes, jewelry, hats, etc.) to a house or apartment, accompanied with takeout or pizza, and slowly watch your closet turn a new without even touching your wallet! You can even turn this clothing exchange into a furniture exchange to give your space a needed renovation!
33. Dance Party
There’s nothing like a good dance-off to remind you why parties are fun in the first place. Challenge your
friends to put their best foot forward, or if your so inclined, to memorize routines from the all-time best pop videos like “Thriller,” “Bye Bye Bye,” and “Hit Me Baby One More Time,” and have an audience present to vote on the best rendition Best Dance Crew-style.
34. Dive Into A Dive Bar
Maybe it’s the beat-up booths or the musty smell of beer soaked floor, but there’s something about dive bars that make you feel like a true barfly and facilitate the perfect bonding moments with your friends. Order up a pint of whatever’s on tap, grab a bowl of nuts and cue up your favorite track on the jukebox and see where the night leads.
35. Movie Marathon
There’s nothing like popping some fresh popcorn and cozying up in front of the TV on a night when the weather or your hangover might be preventing you from braving the world beyond your apartment. Instead, host a few friends over for a movie marathon night and indulge in your favorite horror fan.
36. Poker Tournament
Put your poker face on and demand a $10 buy in ($20 re buy-in) for the poker tournament of
champions. You might have to split into smaller groups at first, but by the end of the night, the pot could be a nice chunk of change if you get enough of your friends to try their luck.
37. Wine/Beer Tasting Night
This is a simple and cost-efficient way to throw a party and maybe even fine-tune your palate. Ask your friends to bring a bottle of their favorite wine or a pack of their beer of choice and gather ‘round for a little taste test session.
38. Go To A Sports Game
Wear the team colors or paint your body with them—the goal of the night is to get on the Jumbotron! Grab a few friends, a few beers and yell your heart out for the home team (with a couple of degrading insults for that other team thrown in).
39. TV Series Marathon Night
Throw in your favorite Sex and the City DVD and have a night in with the girls. To make it even better, have everyone dress up like their favorite character and mix up a couple of Cosmopolitans. There’s no better way to watch Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte than in your favorite pair of heels!
40. Extra! Extra!
With the Hollywood film industry reaping in hundreds of new shows and movies yearly, they’re always looking for new faces and ordinary people to use as extras on set. Grab your local paper, search Craigslist or call a casting agency to find extra castings every week and get ready to get a taste of Hollywood.
41. Home Sewn
Got a closet full of unworn, hardly touched goods, but you can’t manage to give them to the Salvation Army just yet? Why not transform them into something new. Bust out a couple current and modern magazines, flip threw them, get inspiration, and start cutting! Making a couple hem, sleeve and fit changes won’t hurt, especially if you’re saving a couple dollars at the same time!
Vegas, baby, VEGAS!!!!! If the movie Swingers has taught us anything it’s that impromptu trips to Vegas are a must at least once in your life. After all, isn’t spontaneity what the city of sin is all about? Grab your car, some cash, a wing-man (or woman) and get going, high-roller!
43. Make A Slideshow
Isn’t it time to do something with all those pics sucking up precious room on your hard drive? Exercise your editing skills and use iPhoto or iMovie to set your favorite college memories to music. You will bring your group to laughter (and maybe tears) when you premier your little project at the next big gathering.
44. Host A Murder Mystery Dinner Party
This might take a little more planning than your average college party, but your friends will surely appreciate the level of imagination that goes into putting a murder mystery dinner party together. The key is getting your closest buds to take part in the act and to stay in character!
45. Try To Break A World Record
If you’re really looking for a night that will go down in history, how about trying to get a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records? There are many records you can try to break in the comfort of your apartment such as “most spoons balanced on face” to the “fastest time to peel and eat a lemon.” The more creative you are and are able to involve your friends, the better.
46. Hit Up A Roller Rink
Do Billy Idol proud and show up at your local roller rink decked out in acid wash and neon spandex. Pay homage to the rock gods of the past while listening to cheesy tunes and showing off the cool skate tricks you haven’t whipped out since middle school.
47. Build A Fort
Remember when you were little and you would pile your pillows and blankets all around you and camp out in the middle of your bedroom? Well, who says you can’t do that in your dorm room? It could be the perfect private spot to hook up with that special someone.
48. Make A Bucket List And Then Do Something On It!
We all witnessed Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson do this in the film, but it might be worth your time to write out a list for yourself. For those that don’t know, a “bucket list” is a list of everything you hope to do before you, well, kick the bucket. After you’ve included all of your heart’s inner-most dreams, try to find something you can do right now. Always wanted to dye your hair blue? Do it!
49. Crash A Wedding
We all saw Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson perfect the art of wedding crashing in Wedding Crashers, so it shouldn’t be too hard to try it out yourself. All you have to do is call the local upscale hotels in your neighborhood and pretend to be a wedding guest looking for info and you should have all the details you need for your evening’s destination. Next, break out the suit or little black dress and make sure all crashers have their stories straight. You should be gettin’ down to “We Are Family” in no time.
50. Go To A Jazz Club
You might not be too familiar with Miles Davis or John Coltrane, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spend an evening soaking in the smooth musical stylings of jazz. Jazz clubs are a fun way to break from the norm of clubs where you can’t hear yourself think, and allow yourself to just mellow out with a drink in hand while the cool cats show you what real music is all about.
51. See A Foreign Film
Foreign films have a nasty stigma attached to them for being boring or over-the-top artsy. If this, or the fact that it’s extra reading you have to do on top of your school work, has prevented you from checking one out, you’re wrong. Ok, so you do have to do some reading, but once you get sucked into the storyline, you won’t even notice the subtitles. Start out with a favorite like Cinema Paradiso or Amélie. You might surprise yourself with how much you enjoy it and you’ll impress your friends with your cultured movie tastes.
52. Ice Blocking
Go to your local liquor store and buy a big ice block, then go to a golf course at night (or a place with the proper terrain), and put a towel over the ice block so your ass doesn’t freeze and haul ass down the hill. Burrr.
53. Impromptu Road Trip!
Road trips are always fun and full of great memories and bonding moments, but they can also become the product of stressful planning. Wouldn’t it be fun to just forget the itinerary, pile your friends in the car and drive somewhere cool just for the night? Ok, so maybe this won’t be a long road trip, but anywhere that’s over 100 miles away counts.
Why not spend your Saturday night personifying the great Emeril? Find a local culinary school or kitchen and take some lessons on cooking from a professional. With tips, tricks and how- to’s you’ll be able to save your kitchen from a chemical meltdown and maybe even woo a date or two.
55. Prom Night
Remember how much fun prom was when you got all dressed up, rented a limo and got to stay out all night? Get your friends together to recreate the magic by hosting a prom night of your own. For even more fun, set the year in the ‘70s or ‘80s so everyone is sure to come decked out in ruffled satin and polyester.
56. Pub Crawl
This one is an oldie but a goodie and simply refers to hitting up multiple bars in one night. The more the better! Get your group together and come up with a solid game plan for the bars you want to visit and don’t spend more than an hour at each one.
57. Drunken Jenga
There’s nothing like Jenga on a Saturday night—especially if drinks are involved. Every time a block falls someone has to write a new rule on it— our personal favorite is to write the phone number of a friend from home because nothing will spice up their night more than drunken phone calls from strangers.
58. Game Night
If you’re kinda over putting on those strappy stilettos (hand-crafted by the devil) or it’s laundry day for your clubbing shirt, forget going out and pull out some board games. Who knew Monopoly or Risk could get so intense when you’ve got a group of college-educated brainiacs as the players?
59. Have Some Laughs
Make plans to check out a local comedy club for some guaranteed laughs. If this is your first time on the comedy prowl, try to get tickets to someone you actually want to see rather than going too local since “budding” comedians aren’t always the same as “actual” comedians.
60. Watch SNL
It’s true that things may have taken a downward turn since the days of Chris Farley and Adam Sandler, but the recent addition of guest Tina Fey as VP hopeful Sarah Palin is not to be missed. Fey’s impersonation is so good it’s scary.
61. Go To A Theme Park
Let the stresses of the week fall away as you fly down a roller coaster at top speed or get a much-needed hug from a theme park character. Hitting the bars and party scene are fun and all, but there’s something to be said for height requirements and water rides.
62. Play Truth Or Dare
We dare you to bust out this classic at your next soiree. Find out who hooked up with who, or better yet, dare two lucky participants to make out in the middle of the party. From flashing to trashing, this party staple will surely make for a jaw-dropping evening.
63. Glow-In-The-Dark Disco Bowling
If you can’t find a local place that offers this enhanced form of bowling, then good ol’ regular bowling is fun too. But, if you are fortunate enough to try the much-improved glow-in-the-dark variety, it’s a must. The neon lights and groovy tunes will make that gutter ball just that much cooler.
64. Check Out A Local Band
If you’re a music lover, it might do you some good to get out and explore your local music scene. Though you may have to brave a few less-than-recorddeal worthy groups, you won’t have to pay the hefty ticket fee of big acts, and you might discover the next MGMT in your very own backyard.
65. Iron Chef Mixology Contest
Prepare yourself for the battle of a lifetime. With a center table full of everything you might need for mixing (vodka, vermouth, lemons, olives, simple syrup, etc.), have your friends break into teams and present the secret ingredient (anything from imported liquor to fruit) and challenge the teams to make three drinks that showcase the secret ingredient. With the invention of some very tasty new creations, this is a game where everyone wins.
66. Play A College Prank
You can’t go a whole four years of college without causing a little commotion. This is the time to get your roommate back for all the times he/she has sexiled you out of your room. Don’t get destructive, but do be creative. Try duct taping someone to his bed after he passes out or rearrange the furniture when your roomie’s gone and act like nothing happened.
Take one night off from partying to make a real difference in someone’s life. Get your friends to do the same. Volunteer at a women’s shelter or serve dinner to the homeless. Whatever you do, time spent volunteering for the greater good is never time wasted.
68. Disco Stu
It’s time to break out the disco ball, hideous wigs and polyester jumpsuits. Turn an ordinary Saturday night party into a blast from the past by having a 70’s theme “Soul Train” disco night. Include a costume and dance competition to get the ‘70s rolling, get ready to have a groovy time, and don’t forget to “Do the Hustle!”
69. House Of Cards
Remember that episode of The Brady Bunch when the girls compete with the boys via an elaborate scheme of building a house of cards? Who wouldn’t want to try that idea out? This is serious business so only invite the steadiest hands to participate. Break into teams and raise the stakes however you see fit. Just don’t invite a dog over. As we all remember, Tiger blew it hardcore.
70. Read A Book
We don’t mean like do your reading for class. Read a book you actually want to read. Often times in college, it’s easy to forget that reading can be fun when you are swamped with doing it for class. Break out that Stephen King or finally start up with Harry Potter—it’s never too late!
71. Play Hide And Seek
If you’re living in the dorms and want a fun activity that can include your entire floor, hide and seek is a winner. Ask that all doors to rooms be left open and include common areas as hiding spots as well. This is a great ice breaker for getting to know the cute coed across the hall.
72. YouTube It
Everyone has their favorite YouTube clip, so how about sharing yours and catching a few new ones with your buddies one evening? Just gather ‘round the computer screen and let the fun begin. It’s shocking how long you’ll amuse yourselves.
73. Rearrange Your Furniture
They say that the arrangement of furniture in a room can inspire or impair the flow of positive energy. If finals are right around the corner, and you are willing to do whatever it takes to get some good karma (or you’re just seeking a change), rearrange the furniture in your dorm or apartment and see what happens. A couch that faces east might be just the change you needed to bring up that biology grade.
74. Spa Night
If you’re a lady or just kinda metro, take some time out to beautify your sexy self by hosting a spa night. Think manis and pedis, facials and self-tanners. You’ll be just that much more presentable for the next Saturday night.
75. Make A Movie
Move over Spielberg, it’s your turn behind the lens. Get your film major friends together and try your hand at making your very own movie. Granted, it may be about five minutes and filled with odd cuts and a plot that makes no sense, but the process will certainly outweigh the product.
76. Get Hopped Up On Energy Drinks
Break out the Crunk!!!, and leave the alcohol for another time. If you are willing to stay up all night, challenge your buddy to a different kind of drinking contest — the energy drink kind. You might get super hyper, you might get all your studying down for the whole week. Who knows? Down a few and see what happens.
77. Beer Pong Tournament
We all know that beer pong is the real college sport, not that silly football stuff. Find out who the real MVP is in your group by throwing a beer pong tournament. The results may surprise you.
78. Start A Blog
Life really isn’t worth living unless you are able to document everything you go through in a given day, from the slow barista at Starbucks to whatever your roommate said in his/her sleep last night. Take to the web once and for all and share your strife with the world. You might only get a handful of readers, but the relief that comes with venting will be worth the effort.
79. Get Physical
As Fergie so eloquently puts it, her body is looking vicious because she’s “up in the gym, just working on [her] fitness.” Hate to break it to you, but those late night pizza runs have a price, and the cost is adding up on your ass. If you want to maintain that sexy 20-something bod, you gotta put in the time.
80. Do Something Crazy With Your Hair
Maybe you’re brunette but want to know what life is like as a blonde, or maybe you’re blonde and want people to think you’re smarter. Or maybe you just want to piss your parents off and get dreads. Whatever hair dilemma you might be facing, it’s nothing that a bottle of dye or a bowl of egg whites can’t fix.
81. Miniature Golf
If you’re an avid golfer, it wouldn’t be the worst thing to perfect that swing, and if you’ve never been on a real course in your life, don’t sweat it. Mini golf is for everyone. We bet even Tiger Woods would have a tough time with that bridge to the windmill..
82. Make Spaghetti And Watch The Godfather
This is simply an offer you can’t refuse. Big bowl of spaghetti + one of the best movies of all time = a good time had by all. Whether you’ve never seen the film or are re-watching the classic, you kind of can’t go wrong with this plan.
83. Go To A Strip Club
In today’s sexually evolved culture, strip clubs aren’t just for dudes. Regardless of where your morals lie on the subject, everyone should check one out at least once in order to make an informed decision—or just to make the night a little bit saucier.
84. Update Your Resume
Yes, it sounds like a boring way to spend a Saturday night, but if there’s nothing to do, this is something that will eventually need to be dealt with, so get going. Add that summer internship or Dean’s award. You will be one step ahead when the summer or graduation comes around and you are forced to join the real world.
85. Laser Tag
If you’ve watched one too many thrillers and want to put your gun wielding to the test, entice your buddies to play a game of laser tag where everyone wears infrared-sensitive targets and no one is safe. Jason Bourne better watch his back.
86. Plan The Perfect Spring Break
Whether you plan on going to Cabo like everyone else or are looking to be a little more creative this spring break, take time out to put together the ultimate spring break itinerary so you’re sure to spend your precious week off doing something fun, whatever that might be. Your friends will be grateful.
87. Shop Online
One of the down sides of being a college student is not getting as much retail therapy as you used to. No matter. That’s what the internet is for. Go poster shopping to decorate those prison cell dorm walls or buy those cute shoes you’ve been eyeing, but couldn’t find the time to go into the store. The best part about online shopping is that nothing ever closes.
88. Trivia Night
More and more bars across the nation are including a trivia night as part of their weekly schedule. This is where you get to impress your friends with your vast knowledge of marine biology or American Idol in the fun setting of a bar. You might even win them free drinks. Score!
89. Kiss A Stranger
This one requires a little more courage than some of the others, but it might be just the cure for that recent slump or broken heart. The trick is to just politely inform your target that you are in need of a good kiss and proceed to plant one on him/her — do, however, make sure that the person is unattached as the plan could easily go sour if a significant other saw your public display.
90. Create A Fantasy League
From football to basketball to baseball, whether college or professional, all the major sports are at your disposal when it comes to playing fantasy. It’s time to round up your buddies and get your league off and running. And ladies, this is not a guys-only thing, so create a team and make your draft picks good!
91. Go Streaking
Come on, admit it. There’s a little part of you that has always fantasized about running through the library naked during finals week. If it’s senior year, the time has come to let go of those pesky inhibitions and give everyone a thrill. We bet your peers could use a good laugh right about now.
92. Stay At A Hotel
Just because you’re not taking some awesome trip somewhere cool this weekend, doesn’t mean you have to forego the fun that comes with staying at a hotel. Splurge on an overnighter for you and a special friend at a local inn. Ordering room service and raiding the mini bar never felt so good.
93. Get Ja-Cozy In The Jacuzzi
If you or someone you know is lucky enough to have a hot tub, do not, we repeat, DO NOT let it go to waste. Whether it’s winter or spring, Jacuzzis are just right all year round and a great spot for getting close to that special someone without so many clothing layers between you.
94. Chalk the Night Away
With so many concerns on the future of government, society and the economy, why not give a stranger strength and inspiration? Grab a bucket of chalk, go around your town at night, and write inspirational messages of hope, politically incorrect quotes (for a few laughs) and points of necessary thought to turn one person’s ordinary day into a piece of needed wisdom.
95. Battle Of The Rock Bands
Challenge your friends to a battle of the bands. Don’t worry, you don’t have to actually be in a rock band, you just need the help of technology and a little game known as Rock Band. Think your friends’ skills are better than the guys across the hall? Let the score be the judge.
Is your bland and lifeless wall leaving you tired and uninspired? Don’t just sit there, do something! Get a huge sheet of paper, a handful of friends, and start painting. By having your friends write personal messages, draw unique doodles or even a mural, you’ll have a wall ready to entertain your mind on a melancholy, lonely night. (P.S. If you can paint on your wall, do it!)
97. Get Sloshed During Sloshball
If you’ve never played, think kickball with a keg of beer on second base. Break into two teams and every kicker to reach second base has to down a beer. Beware. Your athletic ability might be compromised.
98. Scavenger Hunt
Create a list of odd, but obtainable items or things to do and hand one out to all of your floormates. List items might include taking a spoon from the dining commons or having a shot with the bartender at your favorite college dive bar. The more people you get to participate, the more fun you’ll have.
99. Bros Before Hoes / Chicks Before Dicks
Screw that jerk who didn’t call you back, and forget that chick who refused your offer to dance. Tonight, it’s all about retreating to your own kind and rebuilding some necessary self-esteem. Hit up a sports bar with the guys or dance on the bar with your girls and pay homage to those that have your back no matter what.
100. Get Kicked Out Of A Nightclub
Part of the fun of your college years are all the great stories you can share once you’re old and feeble. While you don’t want to raise hell in your local hangouts and risk being barred for the rest of your time at school, it might be OK to get a little rowdy or a little risqué at a not so local venue. Your grandkids will love you for it.
