My 21st is today, and this weekend Mom, my sister, myself, and seven of my friends are going to a cousin's cabin on Lake Pickwick. He's got an 18ft Bayliner that we go skiing/tubing with, and Mom's bringing her vintage 1976 Old Town Tripper canoe. Should be fun.

Mom never told me the other half of the story, back when the Mud Stumpers (something like that) took their big boat and a bunch of people up to Pickwick when my parents were in college. They had a bunch of people camp out on Goat Island, and set a local record for 26 people skiiing behind one boat at a time (started out with about 35, but some got crowded out). Mom never told me until recently that they went through 22 cases of beer in that weekend, though.

I was in the thick of summer session in college, and flat broke, but my friends and I saved up to go out to dinner at a nice little restaurant called "90 East Main" which served dinner and wine.
I chose a glass of white Zinfandel, since it was the only name of a wine that I could remember. I made it through 1/3 of the glass and decided I didn't like the taste. I think I had steak and my friends had chicken, steak and pasta. It was a very nice evening.

BTW, that's the last time I ever consumed alcohol.



Up, up and away!

One of my friends took me out to do a little bar hopping in Little Five Points. I didn't have to buy a single beer that night, as what my friend didn't buy, the bars themselves gave me. My friend keeping making a big deal of the whole thing, egging the servers and bartenders to check my ID. It wasn't my drunkest birthday by no means, my 25th birthday took that one (Pretty much the entire week of my 25th birthday was one long drunken week.), as my friends bought me numerous beers and shots of Jagermeister, the staff at the bar we hung out at bought me a few rounds (That's what happens when a chunk of your group is up there 2 or 3 nights a week).

I drove 1 1/2 hour from university campus and entered to the gay club for the very first time. I met couple of guys, exchange phone numbers then drink and dance with them all night. Before the club is closing, I met someone else then woke up in his bed.
Then next morning, one of the guy that I exchanged phone number called me and asked if I want to do Sunday bunch with him. I took the offer and met him at the restaurant. The bunch was ended early afternoon at 4pm then we went to the bars for happy hour and more drink.
We left the bar at 8 pm for dinner then he asked me to stop by his place. Finally, I woke up in his bed on Monday morning and drive back to campus with brain dead.

I'm not sure is it good or bad for my 21 birthday but I'm exhausted (physically)

I went to the grocery story at 11:45 PM the day before my birthday and bought a lot drinks; (vodka, rum, stuff to mix it with as well as beer), got in line at 11:58 and was rung up at 12:01 AM.
The check said;
"You have to wait until you turn...... HOLY COW!
You CAN'T WAIT!!!!!"  Wow!

Congrats on your 21st.  Smile

I did nothing special on my 21st birthday. Dinner and cake with family, and then out with some mates later.

In Norway, the 18th birthday is normally the one to celebrate. Old enough to drive, to drink, to vote... well scratch the last one, that ain't worth celebrating.  Wink

I thought I was going out to work at the bar in the student's union. But it turned out there was a surprise private party organised for me with my coursemates, hallmates, friends from other unis, and boyfriend who flew over from the netherlands. It was great Big grin

First thing I did that morning was shave off my mustache that I had for about 2 years; I didn't need to look older to buy anymore.

Since my birthday fell on a Sunday that year and I had a 9 AM class that Monday; my dormitory incorporated my birthday celebration the weekly Saturday night partying the night before. The dorm I was staying in was one of the more lively dorms in terms of parties.

Wine coolers were still popular back then, so I had a few. Got a buzz but not totally trashed to a point of vomiting (thereby earning a boot painted on the doorpost to one's room).

Later during Thanksgiving break, my brother & a couple of his friends took my out to couple of strip clubs as a belated 21st celebration. I drank more at that gathering. While riding in the backseat of my brother's friend's '77 Mercury Grand Marquis along Storrow Drive in Boston; I had to open the window and heave. Not to worry 'Fly, none of it hit the car.

Yes, that was back in my wilder years.

My 21st birthday was really cool. I had been talking to my current girlfriend online for about a year, and we made the decision to be committed to one another even though we hadn't met yet. We made plans to meet in November, but unbeknownst to me, my friends at my job pooled together money to fly her out to Maryland from California in September. They played a trick on me to get me to come in to work early on my birthday for a meeting and made me go to a table (worked at a restaurant) to take an order, and there she was. She looked beautiful. That was almost 3 years ago. She's since moved out here for over 2 years. We're still together, and I'm going to propose this summer. We celebrated by eating Taco Bell at the bed & breakfast that my friends had gotten for us. It was pretty perfect.

Mine was low key. I went to a local pub and had three pints with some close friends. Then I went home.

I went to a titty bar with some friends, and believe it or not my former babysitter was one of the strippers.

I wont tell you her real name, but her nickname in High School was Joanna "Bagworm". And how she lived up to that sobriquet!

I was looking forward all day to some family and friends coming over, and then going to a great American Restraunt called Damons in my Home town of Lincoln (UK and Nebraska)
I had been telling my mates at work all day as the food there is so yummy its got to be wrong for ya  Smile

Anyway, the friends came over, and we made our way down to the local pub to start with (i did not drink before then) where the taxi was gonna pick us up.

As i was going in the door, i mentioned to mum "Oh....Thats my boss's car" but did not think anything of it as he lived in the next village and came here a lot.

Anyway, in the bar, and SURPRISE.

They were all there. Huge buffeyt, HUGE bottle of champers which i had to drink (be it half of it went over me as my sisters ex (Stupid Prat) shook it.

My boss (who i hated btw) even put a £50 bar tab behind the bar of which i got £3 as the stupid ex of my sister was ordering doubles, and expensive stuff.

A night i will never forget, i cried doing the speech. Never had a birthday like it

(Last one being 24 was good as well. A few mates, some drink, and good pressies. Cheers guys)

I was at work on that day. All my friends told me "now you can drink in the USA". Big grin It's always a laugh as you're allowed to drink at 16 here (beer and wine) and 18 (stonger alcohols). Was just a normal birthday!

The specials birthdays here are the 16th (drink), 18th (majority), and 20 (cause it's just a round number)... Then you just get older.... older.... and older!!  old

Well first off, Congrats on your 21st b-day

For my 21st b-day, my family had a huge party with tons of people to celebrate. It was absolutely amazing. I had a lot to do with the planning so it wasn't really a surprise party but it was still awesome. I love throwing parties and well this had to be at the top of all and it certaintly was. My favorite part was the Mariachi band that serenated me with all my favorite songs. It was just great. Of course there was other music provided by 2 musical groups and a DJ. The gifts I got were very nice but the party really made it truly memorable for me. Oh, that day I also went and bought myself a 6 pack of beer....it wasn't my first time doing it but it was my first time doing it LEGALLY.... Big grin
So, I DEFINETLY think you should do something memorable for your 21st birthday.

I rented a car.

My own car broke down the day before my birthday and I was lucky enough to be able to rent a car when I needed it! If my car broke down one week sooner, I would have had to take taxis!

In Florida the minimum age to rent a car is 21.
