Paying with cash allows you to notice exactly how much you are paying per drink, instead of simply putting it on your tab all night. This way you won't be mindlessly dwindling away your bank account, you'll actually be saving money. Here's another little something that could help you out, this way you won't forget to tip! When you leave a tip, you can become the bartenders friend which can get you a nice discount now and then.
I can easily remember my first time setting foot into my first bar on Court Street. I waited in line at The C.I., my new form of identification shaking in hand, nervous I wouldn't find my way through the party crowd waiting ahead of me- I get it. However, for you first timers, I promise it's not that bad and it can be a lot of fun.
To have a healthy night out on Court Street is very difficult to do. Some would say that it is impossible. I would agree with those people, but there may be some alternatives to a night on the town. Not that it is extremely healthy but it could easiliy save you a few bucks and you could feel better the morning after. These two startegies help me get through the night financially and socially. Many people go with these approaches too, as it works well for them and was big before spring break came.
