My girls and I all turned 21 around the same time so we all rented a condo on a beach about 2 blocks away from a really busy block of bars. We went wine tasting on friday in a limo (SO fun), bar hopping friday night, to the beach on saturday and spent saturday night out at the bars again. It was SO much fun!

I was living in Paris.  A 21st bday is not that big of a deal over there but a group of friends and I went to dinner then went to a club… Nothing too exciting.

I went out with my siblings ( I’m a triplet!), and my family (older siblings and their spouses). My brother knows a guy who got us into a swanky hotel roof-top bar, so we got ridiculously dolled up and drank super expensive drinks for like two hours. Then we went to a local bar and played pool and bumper pool for a few hours! It wasn’t very crazy, but I had a blast celebrating with my fam. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was a new mommy so I don’t even remember what we did to celebrate!  I had a 9 month old.  All I remember was diapers and baby bottles!

At 17 I was a senior in high school, living in Germany (16 legal age to drink, 18 on base) and I always bugged them bout what was the big deal of not letting me drink when all my friends were 18 and drank.  So they got me drunk, to the point where vomit was coming out of my nose.  Needless to say, I didn’t drink after that!  I haven’t been drunk since then and i’ll be 32 this year.  i have the occasional glass of wine, but nothing more.

I was in college so my roomies threw me a huge party (think college kegger lol)!  I got pretty drunk… the cops came to shut down the party, and there was even a police helicopter shining their bright lights down on our balcony.  I flipped them off and cussed them out, LOL!  Ooooops   Innocent

Best time ever though… will never forget it!  ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a couple of “21st” birthdays. For my 18th birthday, my friends and I went on a roadtrip to Winnipeg, Manitoba because you can drink in Manitoba when you’re 18 and it wasn’t too far of a drive. That was tons of fun. Then for my 21st birthday, it was on a Wednesday, so the night before I had my couple hours of drinking after midnight, then I had a family dinner the night of my birthday then I went out every night from Wednesday until Saturday with friends. We didn’t go on a trip or anything even though my birthday is during the summer because I was taking a summer class. I wish we would have gone somewher but it was still so much fun.

dinner with friends, and drinks which turned into me plastered….perhaps inevitably. lol if i could do over, i would do it more classy…i live in a college town with college bars, i would have taken a limo or something to a city with clubs n hour away….but we were all poor college students then ๐Ÿ˜‰

Awww!  Your 21st birthday is so much fun!  Are you a drinker?

On my actual birthday, my college duplex-mates and I went out for Mexican food & margaritas, then when to a local bar to dance & drink.

I then went home on the weekend to spend time with my family.  We have a tradition where if you’re a girl, the aunts take you out & if you’re a boy, the uncles take you out.  We did a nice dinner with everyone – parents, aunts, uncles & best friend (who was 20).  Then, me & the aunts met my 21 & older friends downtown to a piano bar (Howl at the Moon) to dance & drink.  We then hung out downtown until closing time.

So, a relatively low key but still fun 21st birthday.  I got most of the partying out of my system when I was 17 – 20, so I was OK with chilling out while having fun!

Started off the day with lunch of wings and this amazing drink called a limy bastard (8 shots of rum, taste like fruit punch, so delicious!) then dinner at my mother in laws, then we had a limo and went downtown bar hopping and had vip access everywhere due to the limo company, ultimately was drunk as all hell, hungover for 3 days, still drunk when i woke up the day after we went out, and yea, it was amazing. best 21st ever. everyone that went with said it made up for their shitty 21st bdays.

My 21st was to be spent at a hotel with my friends and included a night of dinner, dancing, clubs and probably lots of alcohol!  Instead I spent my 21st in the hospital with severe kidney stones.  My friends did bring me a beer shaped balloon though ๐Ÿ™‚

I haven’t turned 21 yet but in Canada the 19th is the equivalent so I guess I’ll just talk about that ( : Nothing crazy happened on my actual birthday, it’s on Valentine’s day so I had my birthday supper with my family and boyfriend and then went to the movies after. Two weeks later when my boyfriend turned 19 we went out to supper and order this giant strawberry daiquiri as our first legal drink ! It was really great, I’m not really a partier so it was perfect!

I went out to dinner & had drinks with my Fiance (boyfriend at the time) and some of my friends. Then we went out to a strip club- ha.
