Ah, that time of the month. After two grueling weeks, all you want is to do is forget work and have a blast. As a Filipino, there's no better way to celebrate than to share booze, a plateful of pampabata, and a night of non-stop laughs with your crew.

As much as you want to swim in alcohol and eat like there's no tomorrow, you need to go easy on your spending. Drinking is only fun when you're not compromising your budget to survive for the next 14 more days. Feasting for one night and struggling the rest of the way until your next paycheck comes is an act of sheer folly.
 


Good thing Manila is not just overflowing of drinking spots; the metro is full of great places to get hammered without leaving your wallet empty. Manifesto roams around the 16 cities and one municipality of the National Capital Region to find you the best joints to spend your next rounds of drinks, while saving you another trip to the ATM booth.
