10 ways to score free drinks when traveling without scoring

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.

#2 smile

#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

CHEERS! CIN CIN! SANTE! SALUD! PROST! – ENJOY

  1. So to quote a favorite song we share, flirt but not so serious 😉
