Our local town, Huddersfield, has always been the destination of choice for our nights out. We even have a routine – pre-drinks at someone’s house, taxi into town, head to Yates for a few of their £5 pitchers, then on to the only club. It’s been our standard practise since we turned 18 – we’re going to have to start being more adventurous. So when a night out was suggested, shockingly we decided to stick to our tried and tested routine.

Prinks is always one of the most enjoyable parts of a night out! It’s where you get to chat, play games and is one of the only times of the night you can actually be heard. The general rule is BYOB, but once you’re a couple of drinks down everyone gets pretty generous and all drink becomes fair game.
The best part of prinks is the games. Make no mistake, no matter how well you get on with your friends usually; during drinking games people are ruthless, especially if they’re trying you to get drunk. Some of our favourite games include; word disassociation, a ship came to harbour, ring of fire, arrogance, and the owl game (this once resulted in us receiving a warning from our hotel about the loud owl noises coming from our room!).
On this occasion prinks was the only part of the night. When we arrived in town we realised pretty quickly that the night would not be a success. Most bars were closed, the ones that were open were almost dead and after sitting in the empty club for an hour, completely confused by the situation, we were kicked out for it to shut early. Not our best night, but to be honest it probably wasn’t our worst either. At least we had prinks!
And to complete our standard ritual, we all returned home to our typical post-night out snack – crisp sandwiches. Always a winner.
Oh and please remember – never feel pressured to drink just because your friends are! There is nothing wrong with choosing to just drink coke or water on a night out and don’t let anyone make you think otherwise. Plus it will work out a whole lot cheaper for you!
