Slow nights are the BEST nights to hit up the bars & clubs to BUILD SOCIAL PROOF. Since there's nobody there except the bar staff, spend an hour getting to know them. On crazy busy nights like Fridays or Saturdays, you're just another bloke looking to get a drink, but on slow nights like last night, you're a hero for spending the time to get to know them.
Talk to the bartenders, waitresses, door guys, hostesses, DJs, management, EVERYBODY. Get to know them well.
When you go back on busy Friday & Saturday nights, they'll remember you...and take care of you. The door guys will get you past the regular & VIP lines. The bartenders will take your drink orders before everybody else's, and they may even comp some of your drinks. The waitresses (typically hot) will give you incredible pre-selection when they come around and flirt with you. Social proof at it's finest!
If you want, bring a girl on a D2, so you kill two birds with one stone: you DHV yourself to the girl because you know the people at the bar, and you DHV yourself to the people at the bar because you walk in with a hot chick. WINNING.
AND CONGRATS ON THE WELL-DESERVED PURPLE!
