Most house parties are some guy saying, "let's party this weekend..."

to a few of his friends, and then those friends telling their
friends, who tell their friends and by the time it goes down, MOST of

the people there are *crashing* the party - and the party wasn't
really ever supposed to be a party - it was just people getting
together but took on a life of its own. 


Most house parties I remember were conceived as house parties from the begining, with a strictly limited ammount of people invited in.

I have also organized some informal "let's have fun this weekend" events, but they never gout out of control because 6 people showed up at most. Quite manageable. Also no alcohol or drugs or girls.

I have only been at one party that was shut down. Most of the time we kept it to ourselves, and quiet.

Long story but this party had both adults and 'kids'. Halloween party, host was a High school teacher. "we will keep the liquor over here so we can keep them out of it".   Ya, right. 1/2 of them brought their own...  We all saw what was coming ( well us adults did ).  Kids were out of control, and around 1 am cops came. As they pulled up, all the adults just quietly went to one room and sat and waited.  Kids running around like idiots.  Eventually kids were corralled and sent away, and cops came to us, " ok folks. party is over you can all go home now" " be sure you all have a designated driver, have a good evening and be safe"

He ended up losing his job and being run out of town and had to move away. ( smaller town )

I mean, adult parties are different... they're invitation only invents... but high school and college parties are more about being part of a network of people who *know* about something happening at some place, most often.

I threw a couple of keggers. We just put the word out and hung out in a park - until so many people showed up that the cops arrived and we all had to run.

Yeah... I can't even imagine a High School teacher thinking a mixed adult/student party with alcohol for the adults would be a good idea. 

I mean, I was still partying with a range of kids from like, Jr year in High School until 2nd year or so in College after I was 21. There were 16 and 17 year olds - occasionally even a Freshman or Sophomore who managed to get brought along - and those of us over 21 were always sure to be the FIRST ones to disappear, because the cops inevitably asked the people, "who bought the alcohol?" 

Doesn't matter if you did or didn't. If there are wasted minors around and you're getting wasted in the same scene - the cops are going to try and pin you with contributing to the delinquency and a host of other charges. We were all smart enough before we were 21 to realize that much. 

It does create a weird transition, though - and a high risk one, when you're just recently 21 but your circle includes friends who are recent high school graduates that are not yet legal drinking age and still socialize with actual high school students.

Ours were a bit different. 

Funnest event i think was when we broke a leg off a bed.   and we still slept in it.  ( tho the 3 of us dont remember a damned thing )

 

Broke a couch too, everyone piled on the end of it and it snapped off, i forget why. Down we all went to the floor.
