Wake up and take a shot! You’re 21! And don’t stop there; see if you can sustain a full day and night of drinking. Don’t worry, a 4pm nap is acceptable! Alas, we do not advise aiming for 21 drinks. Bad things WILL happen.
The Russian roulette
This is for the indecisive amongst us. Come up with a list of activities that you’d want to do for your birthday. Then come up with one really extreme idea that would certainly put you out of your comfort zone. Throw all of your ideas into a hat, feel the suspense and take your pick! Will you have to get a silly tattoo or streak through the streets? Only chance will tell.
The celebrity overdose
While not obtainable for the average folk, it’s still fun to ogle celebrity guestlists. Take Harry Styles’ recent 21st birthday bash for example. What humble company did he surround himself with do you ask? How about Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Martin, Kendall Jenner and David Beckham just to name a few; a surefire group of A+ listers if we’ve ever heard one.
The 21-gun salute
Let’s face it; having 21 drinks, even over the course of the entire day, is just something that will not end well. Instead, try to reach 21 of something else. Our favorite: 21 mini cupcakes. But that’s just us!
The “VEGAS BABY!!!”
The perfect trip for the perfect occasion. A bonus is that you’re keeping your vacation within the U.S. If you’re planning to take an international trip to celebrate, plan to not be treated special by the locals, as the drinking age will most likely be 18 there.
