11 Buy a round for the guy you just

argued or fought with. No, this isn’t intended to be the second stage of the previous challenge, but it might be. Either way, swallow your pride and be a man, especially if you know you were in the wrong. Even more impressive if he just gave you a black eye or a sore jaw. Beer can wash away many transgressions and heal the butt-hurt. Do the right thing, even if you don’t feel you were wrong.

12 Sure, everyone can sing their favorite

song after a few rounds of liquid courage, but how bold are you? Let the DJ pick the song. No heads up. Just start the music and go for it. It’s crash or burn time. You’ll either fail epically and embarrass yourself or knock it out of the park. Either way, you’ve got a great story for later.

13 Create a fake identity. A new

name and background, and even better, include a different accent. Your friends can be in the loop, but you can’t break character all night.

14 Kiss a stranger. Not just a peck on the cheek or lips, a real kiss. Passionate and in public. Then walk away with no regrets. No name or number is even better.

They’ve been playing predominantly country? How about hip-hop, R&B or dance music? Let’s see where some hippie jams take us. Make your group part of the fun and have everyone pick a tune to build at least a half-hour playlist, all in keeping with the new genre of choice. And if the bartenders and crowd have been generally stand-offish and rude? Well, that sounds like a death metal exit.
