  • Hosting a party can be as fun as the event itself, but every responsible host knows that it's only a great time if every guest gets home safely.Here are some tips to help you throw an entertaining and safe party:
    • As guests RSVP, confirm that they have a plan for a safe way home via a non-drinking designated driver (rideshare service, public transportation, taxi, etc.).
    • Plan activities like party games or door prize drawings that do not involve alcohol and engage people, resulting in a lower consumption of alcohol.
    • Do not push drinks! Drinking at a party is not mandatory for having a good time.
    • Provide plenty of food to keep your guests from drinking on an empty stomach.
    • Avoid too many salty snacks, which tend to make people thirsty and drink more.
    • Offer non-alcoholic beverages or mocktails for non-drinking designated drivers and others who prefer not to drink alcohol.
    • Never serve alcohol to someone under 18 and never ask anyone under 18 to serve alcohol at parties.
    • If, despite your efforts, some of your guests have had too much to drink,  never  let them drive home impaired.  
    • Have the number of a taxi service or a rideshare app on hand or offer your sofa to guests who need to stay put.
    • Have fun - but not too much fun.  To be a good host, you should stay within your limits in order to make sure your guests stay within theirs.
