Bars are a place that most people go to when they want to meet people, get drunk, escape their random roommates, or spend time with friends. However, if you ever get denied entry from one, whether it's because your fake ID is wack or the bar is "at capacity," you're stuck having to come up with a backup plan on the spot. If you're not ready for the night to end, here are some alternative plans so you can still have fun. 

1. Have some alcohol delivered to either your or a friend's apartment

If you really want to get your drink on but got denied from the bar, having alcohol delivered to either your or your friend's apartment would be smart. Your friends probably won't deny your entry to drink with them, you don't have to risk getting hit on by bar creeps, and most importantly, you can also have food delivered, and you don't even have to leave the couch. Check out Amazon for alcohol delivery, or other apps like Minibar and Foodkick if you don't have any local spots that will bring it to your door. 

2. Catch up on sleep

Being an adult is tiring, so you can always use this as a sign to catch up on some sleep. Chances are, however, you're also a magical adult. Want to know what else is magical? Unicorn onesies. Treat yourself to some sleep while reminding yourself as to how magical you are by throwing on a unicorn onesie. Or, you can throw on the old t-shirt you got from a high school pep rally and probably feel just as magical, amirite? 

3. Pick up some Nipyata Piñatas, get some snacks, and invite your friends over

From a general standpoint, think of Nipyata Piñatas as adult piñatas, because instead of candy filling each one, you get "nips," aka miniature plastic bottles of booze. 

Given that you and your friends will be drinking the booze from the piñatas, make sure you have some snacks around so that you have something in your system to help absorb all that alcohol.

4. Plan some form of food, dessert, or drink tour with some friends

Chances are, there are a few places that you've had your eyes on for a while, but have never had the time to go and visit. Instead of trying them alone, why not get some friends together and go to some of the places altogether back to back to back? Basically, go on a late night food tour. You can hit up the pizza place, the burrito place, and the other pizza place, and still have a great time.  

5. Clean your apartment while drinking wine

Cleaning is a necessary thing to do, but what nobody tells you is that it's hard, tiring, and annoying. However, like most things, wine makes it better. As a reward, you can even put a glass of wine in each room to consume after you've cleaned it. 

7. Go see a movie

Given that most movie theaters are open late, going to see the hottest flick with your friends is a viable plan B. But if the theaters are closed, like a good glass of wine, you can always rely on Netflix.

9. Find an event to go to either through Facebook or your friends

Just because you got denied entry from the bar doesn't mean that you can't have a good time. It seems like everyday I'm getting invited to a food festival or a party on Facebook. Look those up and head to one with a group of friends. It might sound kind of random, but don't rule it out, unless of course you see your ex on the guest list.  

13. Buy that one thing that you've been salivating over for the longest time online.

Online shopping is the best because you can do it at anytime of the night. Actually retail therapy is great in general. If there's something that you really want and can't imagine your life without, then it might be time to bite the bullet and get it. While doing so, it's important to keep in mind that you saved money on not getting drinks from getting denied entry to the bar, so you have that much more money to spend on that special item. 

While getting denied entry from the bar sucks, just think about how you saved yourself from just another night of having booze spilled on your shoes in a small, crowded, sweaty area. There's more to life than just this one time that didn't work out in your favor, but you'll probably have more chances to go to the bar throughout the course of your life.
