let’s face it, most of us have more fun when we’ve had a drink (or two). we loosen up and are more willing to chat it up with strangers. i love to travel, have fun and make new friends but i don’t like going broke on drinks in the process. here are some of my tips for scoring free drinks.
*note, this is not for the shy, meek or stuck-up type.
#1 go to a bar, club, hotel lobby – public places where drinks are served and people are there to socialize. people in these type of places are usually happy to meet others – even couples.
#3 flirt cautiously (remember you aren’t looking to score anything more than a cocktail)
#4 be funny
#5 talk with both genders
#6 make friends with the staff (bartenders, bouncers)
#7 have your own money and maybe buy someone a drink first (pay it forward)
#8 have a gimmick or shtick (i.e. birthday crown, crazy dance moves) to gain attention and be a talking point
#9 don’t drink so much you aren’t in control of yourself and the situation
#10 be gracious
