Friday the 13th means something to everyone.
- Gather up some friends to watch the movie. Some independent theaters will offer a late-night showing of Friday the 13th… but it’s a pretty easy movie to find on DVD… or *gasp* VHS if you still own a working VCR.
- Participate in a 13 bar-crawl.
Can you hit up 13 bars in one night? What a fun challenge! Hit up downtown with no shortage of bars so you can walk in & out of each bar with ease. Even bigger challenge? Getting a drink or a shot in every bar, and still remain standing at the end of the night. Bonus points if you get 13 friends to join you, and the 13th friend = the DD.
- Get inked!
Some tattoo parlors will offer a $13 special if you get a tattoo pertaining to the number 13 on Friday the 13th. If you’ve ever gotten a tattoo, you know how great of a deal this is!
- Take an elevator to the 13th floor.Many buildings with 13 or more floors eliminate naming the 13th floor the 13th floor because of the superstition behind the number. Tempt fate by taking an elevator to the “14th floor”… just for fun.
- Buy $13 worth of lottery tickets.
However you do it, be it 13 $1 scratch-offs, 13 Mega-Million tickets, etc, here is another way to laugh in the face of this superstitious day. You never know… right?
