Food tip: College parties can be quite profitable

I went to 4th Avenue in Tucson last night, which is a street of bars and funky shops students frequent. It reminded me of how one can make a profit while attending the college parties. It's a very simple process:

1. Find a populated party (frat houses, porch parties or after party)

2. DO NOT DRINK, simply observe

3. Around midnight, hit up your local Taco Bell and buy a variety of items off the Value Menu

4. Return to said party with the food and act as though you're going to eat it

5. In less than two minutes, some tipsy person will ask "Dude, can I get a bite?"

6. Tell said person that you really wanted to eat all 20 tacos, but you're willing to part with them -- for a price

7. Repeat

I'm sure this can be recreated with a variety of value menu items from McDonalds, Wendy's or Burger King. This method is not only profitable, but it makes for great people watching. Every party needs a designated driver. You can be the DD that comes home with cash.
