"Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless." - Bill Watterson
So true!!! After a packed work schedule, in which we try to balance our professional and personal commitments, finally the Friday night comes as a respite! Friday night signals the weekend ahead, when we can just relax and chill, for once forgetting about the worries of life.
Different people have different takes on the fun things to do. Some prefer to stay alone while some like to indulge in some outdoor activities with friends. Nevertheless, given below are some of the interesting things to do on a Friday night. You can take your pick according to your interest!
Try Different Cuisines!
Are you someone whose idea of international cuisine is limited to Italian pizzas, and Chinese noodles? If this is the case, buddy you are missing out on a host of scrumptious delights which Japanese, Indian, Moroccan, Continental and Thai cuisines have to offer. So for all you foodies out there, go to a restaurant which specializes in any one of these cuisines and have dinner there. Likewise, you can try out different cuisines with your friends every week!
Hit the Bars!
Go pub hopping with your friends. If you live in a city like New York, every few months there are some new bars or pubs opening up. So you can visit these places every Friday night and have the time of your life, dancing and boozing with your friends!
Watch the Best of Hollywood!
You can have fun watching a movie. Be it romantic movies, comedies, thrillers, action or horror, movies are a great pastime, irrespective of the genre. And don't just watch any movie, look out for the greatest movies ever made in Hollywood and enjoy yourself watching them one by one.
There are a whole lot of other things that you can do with your boyfriend than what you normally do!!! For instance, you both can trade massages, to relax each other, ahead of the long weekend. So get hold of a few aromatic massage oils, play some soft music in the background, spread a soft silky sheet on the bed, dim the lights and you both are all set!
Find a Date!
Find a date for yourself so that you are not alone the next Friday! The best place to find singles is a pub or a bar. If you are not confident enough to approach someone in a bar, join a dating site on the Internet. Chat with singles and see if something materializes. If you are too laid back for this or have a steady girlfriend who is out-of-town, play video games!
See Where the Road Takes You!
Just call up a few friends, get in the car and hit the road! Stop wherever you want to, at pubs, roadside eateries, open grounds - you can even go away from the city, to a nearby forest! You will surely enjoy the unpredictability and unpreparedness of the entire trip with your friends.
Although, there is nothing wrong with reading a book or watching TV or sleeping on time on a Friday night, but for once, let your hair down and do something out of the way. As Katherine Hepburn puts it, "If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun."
