Should I get a new ID the day I turn 21?

My friends and I are going out for my birthday September 14th. I'll be 21 and I want to try a drink just to see if I like it. Should I get a new ID the day of my birthday? But they give you temporary paper before they mail the ID (I live in Ohio, not sure if that's everywhere) Should I just use my current ID and say I'm 21... does the ID have to show that I am 21?

    The ID shows your birthdate so it will be easy to prove that you are twenty-one.

    Any ID shows your date of birth. So anyone looking at it and doing a quick calculation will see at once that you are in fact 21 that day.
