DJ AM @ Ibiza Nightclub DC Originally uploaded by EsoGato

Tonight is Winnipeg’s busiest bar night of the year. Good Friday being the only holiday that lands on a Friday every year creates a lot of long lines and 20 minute drink waits at almost every club in Winnipeg.

A few tips for the party animals tonight:

A packed club is a packed bar – don’t expect to get a drink at anything quicker than 10 minutes. Pre-gameing (Verb. To casually drink before an event) is a good idea to avoid having to line up at the busy bars all night. Less time lining up for a drink means more time dancing and scouting the club.

If you are one of the lucky ones who make it to the front of the bar for a limited chance at a drink purchase, grab 2!

Show up Early!
Obvious, i know. On a normal bar night the line will form around 9:30 – 10pm, your best bet to guarantee entrance to the club is to arrive from 8pm-9pm.

Leave Your Coat in Your Car
The weather should be around -5 tonight. Should be warm enough for you to run from the parking lot to the club and tough it out while you wait in line. If your showing up late, don’t expect to get coat check, this is usually the first thing to sell out. If your leaving late, don’t expect to get your coat without a 15 minute lineup. Bottom line, leave your coat in your car if you can.

Don’t Drink and Drive
Drinking and driving is a criminal offense. Lets all have fun but keep it safe Winnipeg!

Hope you all have a great time. TYC (Canad Inn’s Polo Park) and Blush (Across the MTS Centre) should be the hottest spots tonight.
