It is just a few days into the New Year, so we still have the gap to squeeze in a “happy New Year” to y’all. 2016 is behind our backs, and we are busy cementing the friendships we built while in it.
The kafunda down street and the bar in town are taking our Happy New Year mood very seriously, so you will hear the happy hour call checking in regularly. Then we are still young people, so by right, we should go out. So before you holla at the squad to go out, here are a few tips on having that party lit, while keeping safe.
Know the Gang
Stop going out fwaa! Try as hard as you can not to go out alone because when stuff goes south, no one is going to have your back. When you are out with other people, make sure you know them and are safe with them. Do not underestimate the power of a crowd, especially an anonymous one.
Don’t Dare The Drink

Keep the Rubber Close.

Know your ‘NO’
