Never been out drinking before - help needed!

I know this is a stupid idea but I'm inviting a few of my friends out to a bar for my 18th birthday. Since I organised it, I'll be expected to order & pay for the drinks, but I've never been to a bar before. Thanks to the thread I made yesterday, I know how to pay for the drinks, but I need help on looking EXPERIENCED. This is not to fool my friends or anything, but to convince the bartender that I'm 18 (which I won't be b/c I'm going 2 days before my bday) without having to show ID.

Is there anything I should know about bars and alcohol in general before I go?

I don't want to get too wasted because my parents are muslims, and I have to get a train back to my house, etc. So how many drinks are too many? What's worse: margaritas or shots? And what do I tell the bartender when I want to order?

seriously?

edit: Go when you're 18, and you'll know when you're wasted.

It's not that, I have beer at home all the time :wink:
But my parents are strict about me going out at night (worried about my safety and whatever..). But that's not the point ^^ because now I am allowed out, but I have no idea what to do when I'm there!!

Because it's my party so I should pay, right?

Get a kitty going. That's the best way.
