Deck of 52 cards and alcoholic beverage for each person. A table is preferred but, the ground is sufficient.
How to play:
The object of the game is to “F*@% the Dealer” by guessing cards correctly, making the dealer drink. Everyone sit in a circle; the dealer holds a shuffled deck of cards and looks at the card on top careful not to let anyone else see. He/she then asks the player to their left what they think the card is (the number of the card only, not the suit). If they guess right on the first try then the dealer takes ten drinks. If not then the dealer tells the player if the card if higher or lower than their guess. If they guess right on the second try then the dealer only drinks 5 drinks. If they guess wrong again then the player has to drink the difference between the card and their last guess (say the card is a 10 but the player says 7, they only drink 3 drinks). Now the card is shown and placed in the middle faced up. Leave room to line the cards up in order as the game progresses. The dealer then repeats the same guessing process with the next player. The goal of the dealer is to have three players in a row guess the card wrong so they can pass the deck to the player to their left, who becomes the dealer and starts with the next player up to guess and so on. The person who ends the deck as the dealer must take a shot!
Rules: The next dealer is always the person to the left of the current dealer.
The next player is always the person to the left of the current player.
The object of the game is to roll both dice and get a 7, 11, or doubles in order to give out drinks. Everyone gathers around the table in a circle and place a cup in the center. Fill the cup up about a quarter of the way. The game starts by having one person roll the dice. If they do not get a 7, 11, or double then the dice are passed to the player to their left for their turn to roll. If the person starting gets a 7, 11, or double then they choose someone to drink the cup. As soon as the player chose to drink, touches the cup with their hand, the person who rolled they 7, 11, or double has to grab the dice and attempt to roll another 7, 11, or double before the player finishes the cup. If the person drinking finishes the cup before a 7, 11, or double is rolled the dice go to the next player and the cup is to be refilled. If the player rolling gets a 7, 11, or double before the player drinking finishes, then the cup is refilled and the two players attempt the same thing. This is repeated until the player drinking the cup finishes before the player rolling gets a 7, 11, or double, or before the people involved are to drunk to know what is going on . Which ever comes first.
The player drinking can try to move the cup closer using objects, this way the player rolling cannot pick up the dice and start rolling. Once any body part touches the cup then the player rolling can proceed.
Another player can jump in and drink the cup for the player who was chosen to drink it. If this happens then the game is between the player who jumped in and the player rolling the dice.

Saturday nights in Hollywood never tend to disappoint. I was lucky enough to get invited to a club in Hollywood by one of my dearest friends, Chelsea. We went to a place called XIV. I was under the impression that it was a full fledged club, however it was more of a bar/lounge that played great music. I actually enjoyed this atmosphere much more than a club because it wasn’t jam-packed or hot inside AND I still got to dance.
We got in for free since we were on the guest list and upon arrival we ordered two drinks by telling the bartender to make us something sweet and with Vodka. It was pricey, $24 for 2 drinks (and they were not very big), but for Los Angeles/Hollywood I think that’s a decent price. Luckily we had begun drinking before and took taxis to get there.
Overall I really enjoyed the atmosphere of XIV and I would definitely consider coming again and would recommend it to everyone. The music was fun, the crowd was diverse, and the whole layout of the place was really upscale. The outside terrace area was a really nice contrast to the dark and loud, yet fun interior.
