A promoter is a good friend for a girl to have. We take all the stress out of going out. You don’t have to wait on line. You don’t have to navigate the crowd to get to the bar. You’re not paying for drinks. We can tell creepers to scram if they’re bothering you. For whatever bad rap we get sometimes, you would not have nearly as much fun without us.
If you’re a guy lucky enough to be tight with a promoter, you should thank god because your broke ass would probably be standing outside all night. Or best case scenario you would be spending thousands on bottles staring at our table full of girls from across the club, trying to figure out what you’re doing wrong.
Since we make your life easier, here are some tips so you can return the favor.
1.) Girls Make Room: Our tables tend to be packed out. So be courteous and try to make room to accommodate everyone. Sit and stand on top of couches whenever possible. If we tell you to move to a certain place, don’t be offended were just trying to make room for everyone. One day you will be on the other side and we’ll be making room for you(we both know you’re going to show up late half the time).
2.)Show Up On Time: Being on time for walk in really makes our lives easier. I don’t want to be coming outside all night getting people in. The doorman doesn’t want me constantly up his ass. If we piss him off, he’s just going to make you wait.
Guys if you’re lucky enough to be invited out by one of us. You better be on time because I’m not coming outside to get you unless you’re with ten hot girls or buying a bottle.
3.) Let Us Make The Drinks: Ladies let’s face it, you may be good at many things, but drink making is not one of them.
I’ve seen it a hundred times. Every girl makes a drink in the following way:
3/4 cup of vodka
1 ice cube
2 splashes of cranberry juice
This is going to taste like sh*t. Five minutes later its going to be sitting on the table because it’s UNDRINKABLE. If you do end up finishing it, you are probably going to black out shortly after. It’s a marathon, not a race, let us handle the drinks. You focus on having fun.
Guys if you didn’t pay for it. You should under no circumstances be touching the bottle or making yourself drinks. Unless we tell you that you can.
4.) Take Your Hot Mess Friend Home: We provide all the drinks, but it’s up to you and your friends to know your limits. We do not want you blacking out, passing out, or making a scene. So please take it easy.
If your friend over does it. Please get her some water and get her out of there. I know it’s only 1:15 and the night is just getting good, but if your friend is vomiting into the ice bucket or taking out a whole table full of glassware, it isn’t fun for anyone.
Also, along the same lines, do not bitch at us when your drunk friend bounces on you to go hook up with some random guy. I understand your concern. However, 90% of the time she hasn’t been abducted or dragged into the bathroom and raped. She’s just trying to get it in and she didn’t tell you she was leaving for a reason.. No need to alert the authorities, you should have been more on top of her whereabouts in the first place. It’s your job to c*ckblock her, not ours.
5.) Guys Do Not Be In the Middle of the Table: Unless you are spending money you should be off to the side. The club manager doesn’t want to see you fist pumping in the center of the table when he walks by. He wants to see hot girls dancing having a good time. So please, for the love of god, stand off to the side and be happy you are here.
This is the first of a series of these, I will post more as I think of them.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, now act accordingly.
P.S. Also props to Joe Delgado for suggesting I write about this.
