Hi guys, it's my first time going out drinking tomorrow. I used to be quite anxious but I think I've largely overcome this issue now I'm at university. However, I'm going with one of my friends and a few of his friends who I don't know.

We're pre drinking and then going to a club.

So - do you bring drinks for the pre drinking?
Would it be seen as boring to leave at say 11pm if you need to catch a train?
What can I talk about to avoid being seen as boring and dull?!

Thanks guys

I think you're generally supposed to. Don't feel like you need to bring a lot, just one bottle of whatever. If you need to catch a train, then I'm sure they'd understand. In terms of what to talk about.... hmm, anything? Once people start downing drinks it honestly won't matter what you talk about. Don't stress too much and try to enjoy yourself. If you feel quite nervous, take a couple of drinks to calm yourself down. Also, don't get wasted, lol, so that you can get to the train station and home safely. x

Pre drinks before pre drinking before going out? Risky strategy

No, pre-drinks before going going out. OP, do not pre-drink before the pre-drinks, that is not what I meant. I meant down a couple of drinks during the pre-drinks.

11pm is very early to leave. From my limited experience pre drinks generally start at a flat party around midnight and you don't leave to go clubbing until around 2-2.30 am. Don't worry though I never realized people go out that late until after my first time either.

It is not risky, it is bold. Fortune favours the bold.
