It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Queen Bey is coming to Columbus tonight,
with some guy named Jay-Z with 21-time Grammy winner and her husband, Jay-Z. If you don’t already have tickets, we wish you the best of luck finding some before tonight, but there’s a reason these two are going to likely fill the Shoe: everyone wants to see them perform.
If I Were A Boy (or girl) who didn’t get to go to the concert, I’d be looking for an afterparty to make sure I still have an Irreplaceable experience. I’d hit up my best friends Otis and Sasha Fierce and we’d stay out until 4:44, probably. If you missed out on tickets, you’ll be even more Sorry if you don’t get out to one of these afterparties. You wno’t be Young Forever, so you best party while you can, right? With that in mind, we took the time to round them up for you so you can plan in advance, just be sure to call an Uber if you’re feeling a little Drunk in Love after the night’s events.
1) OTR II Jay-Z & Beyoncé (After Party) at Park Street Cantina
Without a doubt, one of the best things about Cantina (and Park Street in general) is the close vicinity to, like, 5 other bars in case one of them stops playing Beyonce songs after an hour. You don’t need that kind of negative energy in your life. You deserve the whole discography. The page says they’ll have specials on D’usse all night, which will be sure to get you doing the Single Ladies dance all night long.
2) JAY-Z & Beyonce OTR After Party at Union Cafe
Wanna stay a little closer to campus? Union Cafe is your friend. Their event page claims they’ll be playing Jay-Z and Beyonce songs all night, so you can feel like you’re Big Pimpin’ with all your friends. And, while it may not have quite the dance floor that Cantina offers, that might be a good thing. Dancing too vigorously could make you drop your Halo.
3) OTR II Official After Party at TRISM
You don’t even have to leave campus for this one, but it looks like you do have to buy tickets. BUT THEY HAVE A DRINK CALLED THE DRUNK IN LOVE COCKTAIL AND IF THAT ISN’T ENOUGH THEN YOU CAN’T EVEN CALL YOURSELF A MEMBER OF THE BEYHIVE. They’ve also got plenty of other drink specials to keep you buzzed all night, so go Crazy (In Love).
4) Pre and Post Game for OTR II at Threes Above High
