Drink responsibly: Clearly, it’s something that has to be said when binge drinking is involved. Please, be responsible.
Wear shoes: Seriously, you have no idea what’s on that street. There’s glass, beer cans, Chipotle wrappers, used condoms, tampons (turns out Always is only “Some-of-the-times") and a lot of undefined trash. So please, whether you choose to wear heels, gym shoes, flip-flops, Uggs, boots or even elevator shoes, wear something and DON’T go bare foot.
Use the buddy system: Go with a friend or a group of friends. If you end up going alone, chances are you won’t have fun and you’ll probably be that person who ends up at the wrong place at the wrong time. Be social, people.
Bring toilet paper: I’m pretty sure wherever you go, to whomever’s house you end up at, there will be little to no toilet paper in the bathrooms. There’s nothing more embarrassing than being in a situation where you’re in need of TP. So in case of emergencies, take the two-ply.
Bring condoms: You know, just in case.
Do not go to a house party where you know absolutely no one: Yes, it’s nice to make new friends and acquaintances, but if you’re going to an environment where you feel uncomfortable, but want to see what’s going to happen next, leave and go somewhere else.
Do not take drinks from people you don’t know: You’d be surprised how many oblivious and naïve men and women will take drinks from people they don’t know because they’re free. Take what you please and as you choose, but if it’s an open drink in a cup that someone gave you, keep a firm judgment in mind and reconsider.
Don’t get sick: Chances are if you’re going to be drinking, and you drink over your limit, you are passing out in a place you’ve never been, with people you don’t know, helping you out. Seriously, watch your limits.
Don’t wander off Lincoln Street: It’s drinkin’ on Lincoln, not Summit Street, so stay in one place so you don’t get in trouble.
Don’t wear something too skimpy: Not so much for the dress-code sake of being named as a slut, but because it’s going to be cold outside. Yes, it’ll probably be cold enough for nipples to cut through diamonds, so bring a damn coat.
