Nightlife & Alcohol News!

Hey guys and welcome to Unwrap The Night - an independantly run website that is managed by two students from Washington State - James Pooling and John Smalling.

We are two event management students looking to set up our own events in Washington when we graduate, but for now we are going to be sharpening up our researching methods to find out what the crack is down here in Washington State!

We will be reporting on the best places in Washington to have a few drinks but we will are also mixing the website up and our ethos is to promote safe drinking (i know, it sucks!) across Washington State.


  • Please drink responsibly, no, seriously.

    Right, you guys might think we are joking here (kinda wish we were) but of course, launching a nightlife society in Washington State is going to come with some rules, this is the political capital of course. So long story short, we need to make sure you nutters aren’t up to anything too crazy.

    Don’t get me wrong, we all get a bit crazy at times, but when it is happening on a chronic basis (chronic actually just means heavy occurence) and you find yourself going out every single night of college – you probably have some sort of alcohol dependency.

    Now i’m not trying to say that everyone who goes out 3 – 5 times a week is an alcoholic, because let’s face it, otherwise we would all have been alcoholics at some point! However, I am talking mainly about the ones that are also perhaps failing in other commitments in their life.

    Sometimes you have to sit down and ask yourself, is gong out all of the time a good excuse for me not going to my lectures, seminars and classes? It is estimated that over 30% of Washington State students have this issue and a recent threaten of an event ban in November confirms that most frats are out of control.

    In light of this, Washington State has asked us to reach out to the frats and societies, yes you scoundrels that have the uni on high alert have gotten us into this and you are getting us out! We recommend that you look into alcohol detox programs. If you would like to stay anonymous, the 12 steps of AA is a good place to start and will put you on the right track to getting your addiction treated.

    Again, if you feel like this post has reached out to you and you think you may have a problem, please contact us and we can then put you into the capable hands to get you treated 🙂

    Welcome to Unwrap The Night – a blog that is dedicated to bringing you the latest news in the alcohol and nightlife industry. We talk about the hottest upcoming events in our city however, we also promote safe drinking in accordance to Washington States rules.

    However, for the most part we will be promoting drinking haha! Just don’t get too drunk guys, we want a good and clean conscience here. Plus if we get reported for even one thing Washington State will probably shut us down in no time so no funny business guys!

    We notice that there have been many frat houses recently in Washington State that have been promoting the use of drugs and think that we may do the same – we will never promote the use of drugs on this website. Doing so will land us in hot shit with the uni so we wont be doing any of that either.

    We will purely use this website to post the latest and best events in the city whilst talking about new booze establishments and endorsing safe drinking.

    That’s it for now!
