Fun Bar Game: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Step 1: Create a Creepy Love Letter with Fellow Bar Patrons
Using the old campfire ghost story building game, create a creepy love letter.  All you need is a blank piece of paper, a pen, and a crew of raunchy strangers.  All you have to do is start the letter with a warm, loving sentence (or something like "Dear you, if you are reading this then you already know...") and pass the paper and pen to the person to your left. My personal creation only included 3 references to herpes (I swear my foulmouthed partners in crime did it...not me).  I have been back to visit that bar twice this month, and both times my letter was still there, ready to delight any curious bar-goers who happen upon it.

Step 2: Hide Letter In Bar Furniture
Find a spot in the bar where your letter will be safe from the late night "cleaning crew" (i.e. super tired barbacks), but where a nosy drunk bitch may rummage around and find it.  I personally hid mine in the antique library card catalog on the secret 2nd floor of my favorite bar. 

Step 3: Visit Letter Often - Mark the dates on the letter in hopes others will catch on
Like modern day chain mail, it is just fun to see if the remnants of your drunken bar joke are still alive and well, living in the old furniture at a bar.  Marking the date on the letter allows it to also serve as a time capsule - someday, you may open the drawer and find strange handwriting.  THAT is when you know that you have been discovered by a kindred spirit!

It really is the gift that keeps on giving!  I mean, I laugh every time I see it!


  1. I love it! I need to start doing this at the bar near my apartment, they have some interesting patrons. 

  2. If you know anyone's first name - please please please address it directly to the strangest one!  It will be so worth it. :)

  3. Why thank you!  I may be "growing up"!  Herpes: The gift that keeps on giving!
