15 Tips for Hosting a Party:

  1. Limit the number of guests by only inviting people you know.
  2. Secure valuables you don’t want people to have access to.
  3. Designate yourself or a roommate (or two) to remain sober to make sure the party stays in control.
  4. Supply non-alcoholic drink options.
  5. Keep an eye out for guests who have had too much to drink. If necessary, call police BEFORE things get out of hand.
  6. Walk around the house once each hour to check the noise level and make sure people are not congregating outside.
  7. Allow friends to stay the night if they are too drunk to get home.
  8. Make sure no one walks home alone.
  9. Designate one person to be in charge of the alcohol to make sure no one is over served.
  10. Restrict all traffic to one door to make it easier to regulate guests.
  11. Clean your house. If your place looks like a garbage can, guests will treat it like one.
  12. Set up speakers where they won’t be spilled on or kicked over.
  13. Do not operate like a bar. It is ILLEGAL to sell alcohol or charge admission without a permit.
  14. If police show up, be cooperative. Have one person responsible for the party come outside to talk to officers.
  15. Keep guests off balconies so they are not loud or throwing things.
