Top 10 Tips For Responsible Hosting

RESPONSIBLE HOSTING TIPS
TOP 10 TIPS FOR RESPONSIBLE HOSTING

Why take chances? Reduce the risks of alcohol-related problems when entertaining and help ensure guests arrive home safely by following these 10 tips for responsible hosting:

10 Don't plan physical activities when you serve alcohol. People are generally more prone to injury or mishap after drinking.

9 Always provide low-alcohol and alcohol-free beverages, such as Mocktails, non-alcoholic punch, pop, bottled water, tea and coffee.

8 Serve snacks with drinks and always have food available throughout the party to avoid drinking on an empty stomach. Avoid serving salty, sweet or greasy snack foods as guests will become thirstier. High-starch and protein foods such as meats, veggies, cheeses, light dips and breads are good choices.

7 Be prepared for overnight guests.

6 Serve drinks yourself or designate a bartender instead of having an open bar, as guests usually drink more when they serve themselves. Avoid serving doubles and keep a shot glass or jigger next to the bottles - good measurement makes all the difference.

5 Have a plan to deal with any guest who drinks too much. Before the party, ask someone reliable to help you keep things under control.

4 Find out how guests will be getting home from your party. Promote the use of designated drivers and keep cash and telephone numbers on hand for taxis. Encourage your guests to leave their cars at home and take public transportation, cabs, or walk. Be prepared to take away car keys. Never drink and drive or ride with anyone who has been drinking.

3 Stop serving alcoholic beverages at least an hour before the party is over. Bring out more alcohol-free drinks (bottled water, juice, coffee and tea) and food. Remember that having coffee after drinking doesn't make you sober.

2 Plan ahead so that it's easy to follow this advice.

and the number one party tip is...

1 Don't drink too much yourself. As the host, you can stay on top of, and avoid, potential problems when you can think more clearly and act more quickly.

NOW WHAT ARE BIRDMAN'S TOP 10 TIPS....

10 Don't plan physical activities when you serve alcohol. People are generally more prone to injury or mishap after drinking.

OG Lawn Darts!!!

9 Always provide low-alcohol and alcohol-free beverages, such as Mocktails, non-alcoholic punch, pop, bottled water, tea and coffee.

BS make sure Beer has lots of ice and there is plenty of Crown!!

8 Serve snacks with drinks and always have food available throughout the party to avoid drinking on an empty stomach. Avoid serving salty, sweet or greasy snack foods as guests will become thirstier. High-starch and protein foods such as meats, veggies, cheeses, light dips and breads are good choices.

salty peanuts and plenty of pizza!!

7 Be prepared for overnight guests.

Cause they pass out on the lawn, driveway, porch patio chairs around the fire (actually that is me! )

6 Serve drinks yourself or designate a bartender instead of having an open bar, as guests usually drink more when they serve themselves. Avoid serving doubles and keep a shot glass or jigger next to the bottles - good measurement makes all the difference.

freddy free pour here! yo! cooler is over that way!!! get me one while you are there!!
shot glasses are for doing shooters not measuring!!


5 Have a plan to deal with any guest who drinks too much. Before the party, ask someone reliable to help you keep things under control.

my dog will pick up and dropped food and spilled drinks! if one drinks too much they play thw winner of rule #10!

4 Find out how guests will be getting home from your party. Promote the use of designated drivers and keep cash and telephone numbers on hand for taxis. Encourage your guests to leave their cars at home and take public transportation, cabs, or walk. Be prepared to take away car keys. Never drink and drive or ride with anyone who has been drinking.

nobody ever remembers where they put their keys till the next mornign when they get up from the lawn!

3 Stop serving alcoholic beverages at least an hour before the party is over. Bring out more alcohol-free drinks (bottled water, juice, coffee and tea) and food. Remember that having coffee after drinking doesn't make you sober.

drink till the cooler / fridge is empty the only way to go! the bums love the empties on garbage day!!!

2 Plan ahead so that it's easy to follow this advice.

what is everyone doing tonight??


and the number one party tip is...

1 Don't drink too much yourself. As the host, you can stay on top of, and avoid, potential problems when you can think more clearly and act more quickly.

#1 tip always win at flip cup and ride the bus!!! and also just have fun invite good people this way you never have to worry about issues!!

NOW WHAT ARE BIRDMAN'S TOP 10 TIPS....

I have never had issues at any of my BIG parties at our place trust your friends!! if you can't trust them or they mess up and don't fix the problem they don't come back!
