Bar Joke of the Day
Bar Flies
Bar Joke: An Englishman, American, and Irishman, all walk into a bar and order a beer. The bartender hands them there beer, however there are flies in each mug of beer. Well the Englishman pushes the beer aside and says, "That's disgusting." The American pulls the fly out and starts drinking the beer. The Irishman pulls the fly out, sets it on the counter and shouts, "SPIT IT OUT YOU BASTARD." A man walks into a bar and starts pouring down the beers. Burp. Having had one too many, the man was beginning to display an ugly side. An unescorted female sat down beside him and he whispered to her, "Hey ! How about it babe? You and me?" As she got up to move, he said loudly, "Honey, you sure look like you could use the money, but I don't have an extra two dollars." She looked back and replied just as loudly, "What makes you think I charge by the inch?"

Bar Bet of the Day
Bet Category: Bottle Cap Trick
Bet Supplies Needed Bar Prop Bet
The Bet: Empty beer bottle Bent bottle cap, balled up piece of cocktail napkin or cigarette butt Straw
Use a straw to blow a concentrated stream of air to push the bottle cap, balled up piece of cocktail napkin or cigarette butt into the bottle.

The Catch: Use a straw to blow a concentrated stream of air to push the bottle cap, balled up piece of cocktail napkin or cigarette butt into the bottle.

1. Remove the metal cap from a bottle and empty the contents of the bottle. Preferably by drinking it..

2. Fold the bottle cap in half.

3. Lay the bottle on its side on a flat surface.

4. Place the folded bottle cap, balled up piece of cocktail napkin or cigarette butt just inside the mouth of the bottle. Make sure more than half of the bottle cap is inside the mouth of the bottle, and slightly less than half is still outside of the bottle.

5. Make a bet with your spectator that they cannot blow the cap inside the bottle. When they try to blow into the bottle the cap will pop out every single time. This happens because when the air goes inside the bottle and behind the bottle cap, it forces the cap out of the bottle.

6. You win!

Additional Bet:

7. If the tables are turned and they want to see if you can do it. you can make another bet for drinks all night on them if you can do it.

8. Use a straw to blow a concentrated stream of air to push the bottle cap, balled up piece of cocktail napkin or cigarette butt into the bottle.

Drinking Game of the Day
Beirut aka "Beer-root"
Type of Drinking Game: Skill Game
Supplies Needed: At least 20 Cups, A ping pong sized Table, and At least 2 ping pong balls
# Players: 2+
Buzz Factor: Drunk

This is possibly the most widely know drinking game on the planet.

This game can be played one on one but is best played with two teams of two. Two teams of three or four is ok also. Place ten cups on both sides of the table. Arrange the cups into a pyramid shape. Center the base of the pyramid at the edge of the table.

Fill each cup approximately half full with beer.

Which team goes first?
To determine which team begins the game, you can simply pick a team for whatever reason or have a 'Shoot Off'.

How to do a 'Shoot Off'...
A player from each side throws the ping pong ball to the other side. The player that misses a cup first looses and their team goes second. This means the other team starts the game.
If a team has both members make cups they get what is called a “bring back.” The other team must give the ping pong balls back and the team gets to shoot again.
Optional: You can add a 'Shoot Off' rule which all the remaining beers on the entire table or just their side of the table are drunk by the loosing team.

Common rules: If you accidentally knock over a cup or drop a ball into a cup in play, you loose that cup plus you must drink your entire cup before throwing.

Additional house rules: Each team gets one “re-rack” where the opposite team has to put all the cups remaining back together.

Reshaping the cups:
You can only request a reshape or “re rack” at the beginning of a turn.
Common re-shape designs are as followed:
Six Cups: Pyramid
Five Cups: House shape or skewed
Four Cups: Diamond shape
Three Cups: Triangle shape.

More house rules: Girls blow, guys finger.
Ex: If the ping pong ball is swirling around a cup but has not touched beer, girls can blow it out and guys can use fingers to try and flick it out. This can only be done BEFORE THE PING PONG BALL TOUCHES BEER.

Bounce Rule
Additional rule: You can bounce the ping pong ball off the table into the cup. If it goes in, it counts as two cups. On the bounce the other team can swat the ball away. So it is best to disguise or fake that you are not bouncing in order to throw the team off.

Great thing to have is a water cups on each side. You will need to rinse off the ping pong balls after each turn.

Magic Trick of the Day
Fix What's Broken

Magic Category: Cigarettes&Matches

Supplies Needed: 2 match folders, one folder used before the trick + one folder borrowed during the trick

Summary: Break the 'Head' off a match. Place the 'Tail' in the spectators hand to hold. The matches 'Head' disappears. The spectator opens his(her) hand to find the match back together.

Secret: You have a 'Head' of the match in your hand that you tore off before the trick. You never actually tear the 'Head' off the match in front of the audience. You pretend to. The full match was placed in their hands not the 'Tail' half of the match but you make it seem as if it's the broken 'Tail' you placed in their hand. Key: 'Head'=Top flammable part 'Tail'=the remaining part made of cardboard or wood match with no head. Need: You need an extra 'Head'(top part) in your pocket or anywhere you can quickly grab it from another match folder without them seeing. Tear the 'Head' off a match in the bathroom, or under the table- just get the 'Head' without their knowledge. After you get the match 'Head', throw away the rest or pocket it. You won't need its 'Tail' anymore. During Trick: Right Hand: Broken off 'Head' before the trick. Left Hand: Full Match that you pretended to tear with your right hand. It's supposed to be just the 'Tail'

Set up: You can say, "Did you know that many things is broken can be restored?"

Step1: Before the Trick: Pinch the 'Head' off a match. Now you are ready for the trick.
Step2: Pick up or Ask to borrow a folder of matches. Ask a friend or anyone to rip a match out of the match folder and hand the match to you.
Step3: Left Hand: Grab the match with your left hand and hold it just below the head between your thumb and pointer finger. Make sure the 'Tail' is covered and hidden by the palm of your left hand(the same hand). Move your Right and Left hands thumb and pointer fingers together.
Step4: While you are bringing your hands together, rotate(reverse) the full match in your Left hand 180degrees in the opposite direction. Now the 'Tail' is showing slightly and the head of the full match is hidden by your left hand palm.
Step5: Act as if you are tearing the 'Head' with your Right Hand from the 'Tail'(which is the full match) in your left hand. As you are seperating your hands after the fake tear, slide the 'Head' forward and up a little more with your Right Hand(which is where the 'Head' has been since the start of the trick. This is all done to make sure the spectator sees it. And At the same time, slide the 'Tail' in the Left Hand forward, so the 'Tail' of the match can be seen better too.
Step6: Have the spectator hold out their right hand and place the 'Head' of the match which is in your right hand in to their open palm. Ask them if they prefer the 'Head' or 'Tail'? *If 'HEADS', you hold onto the 'Tail'. Right Hand: Pick up the 'Head' with you Right Hand's thumb and pointer fingers and place the 'Tail' end of the full match into their hand and tell them to make a fist. Make sure you don't let go of the match until its totally covered because if it is not covered properly they could see the match has its 'Head' and 'Tail' intact. *If they choose 'TAILS' then: Tell the the volunteer to hold onto the 'Tail' end(actual full match). Tell the spectator to hold onto it tightly so you can not touch it in anyway. The question throws the spectator/audience off and makes them think that they are affecting the outcome of the trick.
Step7: Smoothly, without anyone noticing, drop the 'Head' in your Right hand to the ground while telling your spectator to clinch their fist. Simply drop the 'Head' on the floor. You can brush it away with your feet, cover it with your shoe, or do anything you like to get rid of the 'Head' without them noticing. They won't look on the floor though but if you want to be safe- get rid of it because they can't find the other 'Head'.
Step8: Tell the spectator that they might not believe it but they may feel a little something in their hand. Hold right your Right Hand up with your thumb and fingers pinched. Do something like tap the back of your hand or act as if you are throwing the Head of the match into their hand or waive it around, it's your choice. Then open your hand to reveal that their is no match 'Head' in your Right hand. Ask the spectator to slowly open their hand to find the match completely restored in their hand. Its Amazing!
