Word to the wise

No matter how you decide to spend your weekend, don’t forget to be safe! Drinks might be cheap, but that doesn’t mean one should get wasted. You might end up with a few phone numbers, but that doesn’t mean you have to jump into the sack. At the least, use descretion, be cautious and always, always, always practice safe sex. Nothing ruins a week like a trip to the clinic.
