About two years ago, I quit drinking. Initially, I didn’t attempt to “mask” my teetotalism at social gatherings: I’d meet a group at a bar, never order anything, and give long-winded answers to anyone who asked why. As my friends and coworkers can attest, it can be awkward as hell being stone-cold sober in a crowd of…
Inevitably, you’ve got a holiday party or two left to attend (unless you wriggle your way out of it), and it’s only right to bring something for the host. Booze is the easy option, and it’s by no means a faux pas as far as gifts go. But it’s also the lazy option, so here, we offer you some more creative ideas.
Many of you may be having office holiday parties today, so let me start by asking: What are you wearing? I can’t decide. In any case, company holiday parties—and holiday parties in general—always end with remarkably un-festive stories. Someone makes out with someone they shouldn’t, the HR guy gets drunk and pukes on…
Yesterday, the New York Times’ Ben Widdicombe wrote about a vilified archetype of NYC nightlife: the Party Crasher. These are wily revelers who show up uninvited to the kind of high-brow parties that are usually thrown by rich wannabe celebs and big, bougie brands. The story gives examples of some of a particular…
As interracial dating, integration, and cross-cultural friendships increase, many people find themselves attending events in which they are the minority, and have no frame of reference from which to base their etiquette. In an effort to help bridge the cultural gaps we all have to traverse at some point, I have…
Bills running back LeSean McCoy is holding a party at a secret location in Philadelphia this Sunday, and all you have to do in order to attend is RSVP. There is one condition, though:
Some people are great at parties—they know exactly when to arrive, how much to drink, and, most importantly, when to leave. Me, I’ve arrived so early I’ve had to devein shrimp, I’ve laughed wet bursts of wine onto people’s faces, I’ve tucked hosts into bed at evening’s end.
Adrian Peterson celebrated his 30th birthday over the weekend with a big party in Texas. The celebration had elaborate costumes, an ice bar, a cake shaped like a palace, and a camel, which Peterson rode. The theme appeared to be "What A Very Dumb 30-Year-Old Thinks The Middle East Looks Like."
Real Madrid’s crushing defeat at the hands of rivals Atlético almost put a damper on that night’s previously scheduled party in celebration of Cristiano Ronaldo turning 30. Almost. Instead of feeling too down, Cristiano decided to sing and boogie the night away. Here’s a GIF of his best move from the video above:
BroBible has photos of Patriots receiver Julian Edelman, reportedly at a Final Club in Harvard Wednesday. Players Kyle Arrington and Michael Buchanan were there too, though there aren't any photos of them lifting up their shirts.
This is a local news report about James Taylor, a wonderfully goatee'd, 20-year-old West Michigan man who threw a big-ass party at his house that featured multiple DJs, fire-throwers, go-go dancers, and about 2,000 attendees. It's a really funny news report, but it achieves transcendence around the 25-second mark.
There was a plastic tent in front of the aircraft carrier and a man in a black sport coat was shouting—with great authority—at a group of media people waiting to get inside the Madden Bowl party and out of the cold. A generator had just blown inside the tent, which was already filled to capacity to cover celebrity…
This is Brutus the bear celebrating his 11th birthday. I won't offer any other details, because Brutus's b-day bash was a super intimate affair and it wouldn't be cool to gossip about it.
Former NFL offensive lineman Brian Holloway has a house and 200 acres of property in Stephentown, N.Y. Over Labor Day weekend, while Holloway was away, roughly 300 kids threw a gigantic rager at his house without his knowledge, trashed the place, and stole his stuff. Teens are the worst.
Party at The Big House!
We all know the Olympic folk are very touchy about their trademarks. No non-sponsor companies allowed in the Olympic village. No posting Facebook photos or Youtube videos from the games. No small businesses using any two of the terms "Olympic, London, 2012, summer, or games."
Arizona Wildcat spring practice began Monday, so it was just a matter of time before we got our first "Arizona football players arrested" story. And here it is!
Two days after we brought you the story of UNC receiver Dwight Jones's now-cancelled birthday party at a North Carolina nightclub—a party that rendered Jones ineligible, briefly—here's another fiesta being promoted on Facebook using the likenesses of some college athletes—this time from South Carolina.
To be fair, those five players are Brandon Flowers, Eric Berry, Kareem Jackson, Jacoby Ford, and Major Wright, and we're willing to bet most potential patrons of the Pornstar Exxxtravaganza wouldn't have identified them all. They needed their uniforms.
Was 'Barry' Obama also on the guest list for Jose Canseco's most famous pool party?
