DUHS AND DONTS OF ORDERING AT A BAR
Bars are crazy. Here's how to make them less crazy for everyone involved (hint: it's mostly about helping the bartender keep everything moving efficiently):
1) ORDER ALL THE DRINKS FOR YOUR GROUP AT THE SAME TIME: Making the bartender keep going back and forth to your group takes their time from other people waiting, when they could have made all your drinks at once.
2) DON'T ASK TO CHANGE THE MUSIC: If you wanted different music, you probably wanted a different bar.
3) DON'T GET THE BAR TENDER'S ATTENTION UNTIL YOU KNOW YOUR WHOLE GROUP'S ORDER: You’ll feel pretty silly when you put up a big fuss to get the bartender’s attention only to make them wait for you to consider your options in a panic.
4) ANTICIPATE PAYING: Don't wait for the bartender to ask for payment before you start digging around your purse for your card.
5) DON'T REACH OVER THE BAR: Strange you thought that would be okay.
6) DON'T ASK FOR FREE STUFF OR A HEAVY POUR: You’ve greatly reduced your chances of getting hooked up. If you want free stuff, just be a sweetiepie :).
7) WHEN YOU ASK TO CLOSE OUT YOUR TAB, SAY AND SPELL YOUR LAST NAME: It’s busy and the bartender doesn’t remember your tab. It’s loud and you have a funny name.
8) DON'T SNAP, WAVE MONEY, POINT, OR YELL TO GET YOUR BAR TENDER'S ATTENTION: It doesn't contribute to a respectful environment.
9) DRINK MODERATELY: Or consider AA?
