Host + Guest Etiquette: House Parties

by Modern Miss Manners

Host: Hide the fine china. JK, I know you don’t have nice things. Move all your breakable tchotchkes and favorite tee shirts out of reach of solo cups and people who talk with their hands (classic beverage spillers), and – most importantly – make sure you have enough alcohol on hand to last past 1am. It’s a goddamn party.

Guest: Unless something else is specifically requested, bring beer. You’re done. (If you bring anything beyond a six-pack, you qualify as an American hero. Jello shots garner sainthood.)
