It’s more exciting than Christmas morning, more gratifying than the 8 Days of Hanukkah and more filling than Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Can you guess what we’re referring to? Today’s the friggin’ day that Season 2 of “Jersey Shore” premieres, and we’re so excited that it should just be made an honorary holiday. To celebrate, we raised the Jersey flag to full height, our hair is Snook-a-fied and our eyes are glued to the clock (is it 10/9c yet?). So if you’re planning on inviting some peeps over to watch the first episode (as we are, ’course), here are five tips to help you perfect your “Jersey Shore” premiere party.
1. DRESS CODE
No shirt (your choice of studded, skull and crossbones or cleavage-baring), no shoes, no service! Enforce this wholeheartedly! Don’t open the velvet ropes for anyone that’s not clad in Ed Hardy fitted tees or Filthy Couture designs. Gotta keep it Shore!
2. FOOD AND DRINK
Chips and dip are for your mom’s Mahjong get-togethers; this party’s about boozin’ (and pickles)! Your guests will most likely come expecting to fill their red cups with some Ron Ron Juice. We’re not exactly sure what’s in this tasty bev, so it’s up to you to be creative. Or just grab a large punch bowl, add some Capri Sun and clear liquor (if you’re over 21!), and label the drink appropriately.
3. BADA BINGO, BABY!
No, we’re not referring to the old-timey game, this one’s brand spankin’ new (well, we created it last year). Pick three people that are actually going to be paying attention to the show, pass out the cards (you can print them out here) and the rest is up to the cast. Each time they act out, your chances of winning improve.
4. SPRAY IT, DON’T SAY IT
If your buds are looking a little bit pasty, be a good host and help ’em out. Set aside space for guests that need to get their fake ’n’ bake on. Spraying can get messy, so make sure you lay down some trash bags (haha — get it, Angelina?) so you don’t stain your furniture.
5. KARMA DANCE FLOOR
It’s hard to sit still when you’re watching the “Jersey Shore” gang pump their fists at the club. Make sure there’s a spot where your friends can shake their rump, battle each other or do the weird Ronnie dance. And if you already own the soundtrack, play that thing on repeat!
