We also want you to look good in the 20 drunk-dancing pictures you’ll be tagged on Facebook the following morning. Take your cue from these folks, depending on where you’re drinking:

In da club:

Natasha Wilson – A regular at Encore Supahclub, idolizes Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan
Wears: Skinny jeans, a tube top to accent her half-Caucasian cleavage, wedges, and lots of body glitter.
Secret weapon: A scarf to hide her cleavage when guys start to get creepy. Baby wipes in her clutch bag for future puking. Always holds a cigarette in her left hand so she can clear space with the other en route to the bar.

At a college inuman:

Miko Andrew Balmaceda – Fifth-year senior, is in a different drinking hole in Taft Ave. every night
Wears: His favorite “Push the Limit Animo Spirit” t-shirt, jeans that haven’t been washed in 2 weeks, ID lace of his alma mater.
Secret weapon: Doublemint gum for after-vomit breath. A Swiss army knife attached to his keychain in case of routine Taft hold-up.

Sa beerhouse:

Jorence Joniver Dabon – Maintenance crew, SM Hypermarket, prefers spending his nights with the “ladies” instead of his wife and kids
Wears: T-shirt given by losing candidate for Mayor, Good Morning towel around his neck, faded jeans, “Jesus” sandals.

At an after-work watering hole:

Jose Jeremias “Jerry” Kimpo – Office worker, big believer in “5:Thirsty,” likes the sisig in Gerry’s Grill
Wears: Polo barong and slacks, leather shoes, “gold” watch
Secret Weapon: Didn’t wear a belt today in preparation for beer and sisig, a pure cotton undershirt to absorb meat sweats.

At a rakenrol gig:
