What you need to know before attending a darty
We’re getting to the point in the year where students are going to start “dartying.” A “darty” can be defined simply as a daytime party. The thing that distinguishes a darty from a party is the fact that they take place outside and during the day.
Since the weather is finally getting somewhat tolerable, you’re going to find a lot of darties this spring. For those who haven’t been to a darty before, this article will be helpful for you. It’s important to be prepared for events like these and understand the do’s and don’ts of a darty.
Do go with people you know
This should be self-explanatory. There’s nothing worse than showing up to a darty and not knowing anyone.
You can meet people, but they won’t remember your name after an hour, and you’ll have nothing more than a drunken conversation. Make sure you know people so you can socialize a little easier.
Don’t show up without beer
You can’t bank on people supplying you with beer, especially if there’s a game of beer darts happening.
Bring enough beer so you don’t run out, that way you can have the maximum amount of fun without letting the buzz come down.
If you have an extra beer, sell it to someone. That sounds weird, but if a drunk person who is out of beer wants another one, they will pay anything for it. Charge them like $5 for one, and you’ll likely get a purchase and a profit.
There’s nothing worse than running out of beer at a darty, so don’t make that mistake.
Do bring a bottle of water
You’re going to get sweaty, and you’ll want some water. Drinking too much beer can get you dehydrated, so it’s important to cancel it out with one of Earth’s greatest gifts.
Don’t jump off the roof
People get crazy at darties and seek attention if they get too drunk. I have seen guys jump off a roof at a darty. They do this because they know everyone is going to go crazy and clap their hands.
Don’t be that idiot. A broken arm or leg isn’t worth a brief applause from a sea of random people.
Do have a jersey ready
A darty isn’t necessarily jersey themed, but there will be a select group of people wearing them. The question is do you want to join them or not?
Being a sports fanatic, I always make sure I have a clean basketball jersey ready to throw on at all times.
Don’t walk miles to a darty
Make sure if you are walking that the darty is a mile or less away from your place. If you have to walk three miles back home after, that’s going to be a terrible walk.
You might just have to call an Uber at that point, and every college student knows those aren’t cheap.
Save yourself time and money by attending a darty within the vicinity of where you live.
Do bring a pair of shades
It’s going to be bright out, and you don’t want to be squinting the entire time. Besides, everyone looks good in sunglasses.
It’s just an all-out win if you wear sunglasses to a darty, and a fat “L” if you don’t.
Don’t bring a dead Juul
Make sure you charge that baby before walking out the door. There’s nothing worse than fiending for a “nic buzz” only to find out your Juul is dead.
If that happens, then you have to play the moocher that asks someone if they can use theirs. Don’t be that person, just make sure it’s charged, for all of us.
Well, that’s pretty much it. For all of you that
