Drinking and bar hopping is overrated...what should I do?!

Question: Drinking and bar hopping is overrated!.!.!.what should I do!?
My friends have been celebrating their birthdays downtown (at the bar) since we were 20 (we will be turning 25 in 2009)!. They would have went for their 19th birthdays but they are the first birthdays of the year and the rest of us weren't 19 yet!.

Anyways, I hate bars!. I have never liked them no have I been a drinker!. How can I let them know that, in 2009, I won't be going to any bars for any birthdays!.

I just don't wana be all "no I am going to celebrate" I want to have a pre-emptive stance in my dislike of bars!.

How should I tell them without them taking it personally!?

Recommend dinner for the celebration thats what we do, some people will always go out drinking after, then you can decline without looking like an ***, he guys quit drinking sorry!. Hell tell them you are looking out for your health, the older you get the easier this one is!. You are right though drinking is lame!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

you dont like to drink or to go to the bars!?

if you dont like to go to the bars then tell them ( i dont like to go to the bars ) its not hard , learn to say wut you feel , you dont need to go to the bar and get drunk with them just to impress them!

my friends and i have started brewing our own beer at home, it's a lot of fun and in the end you get to enjoy your creation (which is far better quality than store bought beer)!.

perhaps you and your friends could start a tradition of drinking a special birthday brew at home or at some other significant location!.

start a new tradition!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

go to a theme bar that allows you to do something else while your friends drink!. there are bookstore bars, and video game bars, along with movie theaters that serve!. use your imagination, its out there, there is even laundrymat bars, but that would be lame for a partyWww@FoodAQ@Com

I used to be the ID checker at a bar frequented by college students and young professionals!. I quit drinking myself after watching so many bright young people metamorphose into stupid, clumsy fools!. Do yourself a favor, and break that tradition!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

How about, "I think barhopping is overrated and would like to celebrate in a different way this year"!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

suggest a house party insteadWww@FoodAQ@Com

Drink at home!. i find it far more enjoyable and it is a hell of a lot cheaperWww@FoodAQ@Com
