Party Time: Fun & Easy Get-Togethers for Guys ‘n Gals

November 20th, 2008 admin

With projects, midterms (or ugh! finals!!!), and plenty of studying, November can be a little exhausting–so why not loosen up with a little shindig with your nearest and dearest?  Snatch up these ideas for an evening with your closest gal pals or a smashing boys night.

For the Guys

  • LAN Party. If you and your boys are true gamers, you already know what this is, but even casual gamers can simplify a LAN party. The basic idea? Get a bunch of your friends together for a BYOC (bring your own computer) evening (or all-nighter) featuring your fav multi-player game. Think the Call of Duty “team building” enjoyed by the Stamford branch in “The Office.”
  • Pizza Hopping. Pizza is definitely a staple part of college life, so why not search out the best one–all in one evening? Whether you hop restaurants or go for delivery, make sure you branch out from the regular old Huts and Tables. Find the local dives, the quirky New York style pizza parlor in Portland, and the hole-in-the-wall deep dish place. (San Diegans, I have to recommend New York style at Bronx Pizza in Hillcrest–yum!)

For the Gals

  • Femme Nue” Party. The concept of a Femme Nue party (scandalously translated to “Naked Lady” party ) is simple and fun: you get a bunch of friends, grab all the clothes you never wear anymore and basically have a free-for-all clothing swap. Can’t slip into your former-favorite anymore? Trade them in for your BFF’s vintage cardigan. Add m&m’s and cupcakes and you’ve got yourself a party.
  • Worst Date Party. Everybody has a bad date story: whether he brought his brother or forgot you at a hockey match, you’ve been there. The worst date party is a girly recompense for that worst-of-the-worst evening long (or not so long) ago. Gather your best friends and treat each other to a good date (read: swap corsages, get dressed up, and grab dinner somewhere you’re guaranteed a cute waiter) and swap your stories. Make sure you have a prize ready for the worst story! Go one better and write your stories down for posterity. 😉

Oh good times. Don’t forget you can share your own party times in the comments!

    I like the ‘watch all starwars in a row’ party. Watch all six of them in a row, crazy.

    @DutchSchoolKid: Try that with the extended editions of Lord of the Rings, too. Haha. My friends and I also tried watching a Planet of the Apes movie marathon but barely got through one of them. 😉

    The best party idea I’ve ever heard of is the Rubick’s Cube party – you go to the party dressed in the six different colours of the rubick’s cube and by midnight you need to have swapped clothes with the other party guests so that you are completely dressed in one colour 😀

    No matter what party you end up throwing, just remember to keep the party fouls to a minimum.
