Stop what you're doing this very second. You're probably in the mood to do some shots of Patron. But before you do, you need a secure and reliable method of transportation set up.
After a few entertaining hours downtown crawling from bar to bar, you'll be in no mood to drive.
You're a quick-thinking person, well most the time at least, and you're aware of that, otherwise you wouldn't be looking for a limo to transport you and your buds around on a night where heavy drinking is going to take place.
I remember when I went to Lisbon, Portugal in 2011. The hostel we stayed at was offering a deal where we could go crawling to 3 different pubs for $15. Alcohol was totally free as long as we had paid the $15 fee up front.
This is an absolute recipe for disaster for those who have a difficult time controlling their liquor consumption.
Surprisingly, to the shock of many, my buddy and I made it past bar 1 with flying colors. Something for you to keep in mind is that we had been crushing sangria for hours while playing drinking games back at the hostel prior to hopping on the pub crawl.
Next comes the 2nd bar.
This takes us to a fun little place where the bartender helps get the party started by filling up two double-shot glasses with tangerine Vodka.
We pounded a few of these and then we decided to tip the guy a couple bucks to keep the shots flowing. In Europe, people don't tip for services, so this was seen as a shocking surprise by the bartender. He didn't disappoint. Seemingly within minutes the darkness clouded my mind and I was done for the night.
To confirm, this was no ordinary blackout where you spring to cerebral life every couple minutes, then drift back into the black abyss.
We had both fallen into a deep, coma-like state where our frames were unable to move.
Next thing I know, we were back at the Hostel and being scolded for a variety of offenses we had committed. The worst of which was when my buddy was caught urinating on the room space-heater. The next day we had to write an apology note citing all of the things we remembered doing the past evening. We didn't even take into consideration apologizing for the things we didn't remember doing!
The next day, my buddy didn't make it out of bed until 6 o'clock. I was up in time to watch the sunset, if that counts for something!
If we had been able to use a limo, we would have been able to pass out in a comfortable place, not along the side of a street where a few Portuguese men had to help lift us up and transfer us back to our hostel.
Don't be like us.
Instead, book a limo from Chandler Limo Service the next time you feel like going on a 6-hour long bender where you consume almost nothing but hard liquor.
