Friday night is something we all look up to. Be it school kids, college goers or more so corporates. Friday brings with it the sheer joy of a weekend ahead which means two days of fun, rest and enjoyment. But as opportunists have it, they don’t wait for the weekend and begin with their bash in advance on a Friday night in what they call an extended weekend.

Here are a few activities you could pick up on a Friday night:

1) A game of football

A number of astro turfs have come up across states and cities in the country. A game of football with friends and peers on a Sunday night makes for a perfect foundation for the weekend ahead.

4) Play Station

Don’t want to go out? Want to sit, relax, eat and chit-chat? Play Station is for you then! Find cafes near you that have play station or X-Box facilities and get going.

Having a drink by the side, chewing some snacks and indulging in a rivetting game with a friend is an idea this activity brings to life.


The music, the banter, the chit-chat and the fun atmosphere makes it for one of the better activities to be planned on a Friday night.

You could also play tournaments among friends and earn the bragging rights to go with a night full of fun.

5) Paintball
