The Secrets of BG Nightlife

Hangover Remedies 101

Hangover Remedies 101
How To Get Rid Of A Hangover

After a long night of dancing and drinking, nothing is worse than waking up the next morning with a splitting headache, nausea, and a bar stamp on your face from sleeping on your hand. Not to mention the humilation that is sure to ensue when your roommate posts the pictures she took of you doing the worm at the bar on Facebook.



People often wonder why they wake up the day after drinking feeling like they were hit by a Mack truck, or why they are so thirsty they feel like they have been walking naked in the Sahara desert with no water for a month straight.



  • Drinking Water

The answer to this is dehydration. According to http://www.about.com/, "The ethanol contained in alcoholic beverages has a dehydrating effect which causes headaches, dry mouth, nausea, and tiredness." Ethanol causes frequent urination and it also draws liquids from the brain. The lack of water in your body the day after drinking is what causes the thirst and also the headache that accompanies your alarm clock the morning after a night of shots and beer bongs.



  • Drinking More Alcohol

Many people have their own versions of the "miracle hangover cure." According to Sarah Schulze, a Senior at BGSU; the best cure for a hangover is to drink a beer in the morning when you wake up. This sounds terrible to someone who has consumed at least a dozen brewskis within the last twenty four hours, but studies show that it actually does help.



"It is really hard to stomach the day after binge drinking, but it really does help me get on with my day like nothing happened the night before," says Schulze. http://www.about.com/ states, "Drinking more alcohol the day after drinking actually does work to an extent. This is because ethanol in alcoholic drinks blocks the breakdown of methanol to formic acid." In the case of the "Hair of the Dog" remedy, it seems like the college drinking pro's might have the right idea.



  • Eating Greasy Food
The older generation seems to favor the old school hangover cure of greasy food. Mike Mason, a sixty five year old veteran swears the only cure for too much to drink is a cheeseburger. Although there are no statistic facts backing his method- Mike believes a greasy meal cures the post drinking blues. "It makes me feel better almost immediately, I don't know why but I have been doing it for years, nothing works better," said Mason.



Everyone has their own beliefs and theories as to what the best option is the morning after intoxication. Most common answers include tylenol, sleep, and vitamin C. Regardless of how you feel in the morning, one thing is for sure in the magical city of Bowling Green, Ohio... if you don't remember it, it didn't happen!

I Kissed A Girl And I Liked It

Long before Katy Perry sang "I kissed a girl and I liked it", girls have been making out. "No homo" I'm talking about straight girls. Girls that kiss other girls when they are out at a party or in the bar, anywhere alcohol can be found. They are usually between the age of 16 and 22. (There are always exceptions) Is it for the attention? Is it because they are curious about how it feels? Tastes?
Let’s say it’s for attention. Why do we get dressed up and put on a cute outfit and do our makeup? These girls are probably out just letting the booze and situation flow with people they are comfortable with. When we go out we just want a “good time”. And if a few cute guys will buy us free drinks if we make out then who’s it hurting. Attention and comfortable situation; could this be the reason?
But, maybe its because these girls are curious? If it is because of curiosity then this is the perfect situation without having to admit to being curious to your friends. These girls can make out testing these feelings undetected and with no strings attached.
Taste? Yes, we’re going there. This girl probably likes girls but her friends don’t know. They go to the bar with their lady-friends hoping that everyone gets drunk and starts touching lips.
So if you’re a lady and you’ve made out with any of your lady-friends ask yourself which “girl kisser” you are. Thoughts?

Sick






Are you sick of going out to the bars in BG? Do you feel like you see the same people, hear the same music? Why not stay at home and party? There are lots of great ways to have fun at home.

Themed parties are always good. There are the traditional ones such as:
1. Highlighter Party
All you need are some black lights, some white t-shirts and highlighters.

2. Ugly Sweater Party
This is simpler than the first. Have everyone where an ugly sweater. This creates a fun mood. It is also a great conversation starter.

3. Eighties Party
Have everyone come dressed in bright colors, spandex and sweatbands. An eighties playlist creates a great way to get people dancing

4. Hat Party
Have everyone where a different hat. Sombreros, crown and viking hats are always a good choice, but the options are endless.

These are only a few of the classics and the list is almost endless. For more party ideas you can visit http://www.celebrations.com/themeparty.



*Of course adding alcohol to all of these increases the level of fun!


Recession


I just got back from Vegas for a broadcasters conference and being in Vegas made me grateful for the nightlife in Bowling Green. I'm not talking about the atmosphere or the level of fun, although at the end of the day I do like BG better for both. There is something about the aroma of Bud light beer and popcorn I missed while out in Vegas. But, what I missed most were the prices. Every drink in Vegas cost around $15. That is before tip.

 

I know that the economy is not doing so well at the moment, and that means people are hurting for cash. That's one more reason that you should come out in Bowling Green. If you are 21 years or older you get free admission to any bar. ANY bar. Now, that's some money in your pocket.

 

In addition to free admission, there are drink specials at every bar, every day. That is way more than any Vegas club or bar. With dollar beers and dollar shots, you don't have to break the bank in order to have a good time in BG.

 

Also if you live in walking distance of the bar or have a friend who do you can save even more money, by drinking before heading to the bar. This is more commonly known as pregaming.

 

By buying, a bottle of liquor or case of beer and sharing it with a friend you can decrease you bar spending by about 25-75%. (The percentage all depends on the amount of pre-bar consumption).

Shots, shots, shots, shots , shots, EVERYBODY!

I know when people go out in BG, they like to take lots of shots in order to get drunk quick. I also notice that in the process of doing this, they pay no attention to the different shots they are taking and the amount of time in which they consume them.

Now I have not done extensive research on the subject, and I am not a scientist, but I do have a theory that there is an action reaction going on here.

I believe (and again, I am not a scientist), that there is a high correlation between the number of shots one takes and the number of times one blacks out.

I cannot tell you the number of times I have seen people falling down or falling asleep at the bar.
And then when they get up they either keep right on dancing or head right back to the bar and order another shot.

I just don't understand it. So, this is a public service announcement to all BGians

(if that is a word?): Please do not take numerous shots and dance, drive, or walk

Brought to you by party girl!
