Clubbing is a favourite pastime for many, but not everyone gets it right. Whether it?s something as small as not having enough cash on you to pay the valet, or a major faux pas like getting so drunk you have to be forcibly removed from the premises, it doesn?t take much to go from painting the town red to ending up red-faced. Don?t endure the latter; avoid these common pitfalls the next time you?re hitting the clubs.1. Not sticking to your budget

Not staying hydrated

Try to stick to a 1:1 ratio of non-alcoholic (i.e. water) to alcoholic beverages. Not only will you reduce the chances of you getting drunk and doing something you?ll regret, you?ll also feel better the next morning. 3. Not watching your drink

Sip two inches off the top first, please. 4. Forgetting your manners

Instead of pushing people aside when they?re blocking your path, how about a polite tap on the shoulder and an ?excuse me?? 5. Forgetting the real reason you?re there

Not to take a never-ending stream of selfies and pose for photo after photo after photo with our friends. And in case you didn?t get the memo, ?duck face? and even ?sparrow face? are so 2013. 6. Forgetting that you?re in public

If that?s you, either move to a discreet corner, stay in your private booth or get a room already! 7. Going all macho-man on other people

And no, that hot girl you?re hoping to attract will not be impressed. So don?t pick a fight with someone who accidentally bumped into you or stepped on your foot, and keep your testosterone in check when dealing with bouncers and bartenders.
