    hey, so I've been invited to a party by a friend, but i dont know many people there. i was told there will be smoking and drinking, and that i will need to bring some drinks. should i bring food instead of drinks? how long do parties usually last? if you have not guessed I've never been to a party before, its also after prom (so will start after 11). also how can i convince my parents....

    many thanks

    How old are you first? It could be a bit hard to buy alcohol if you are under 18. Not to say illegal. Also it depends how strict your parents are however I would be every surprised if they allowed you to go knowing what would take place. The party could go on all night, its hard to say really. At least until three/four in the morning. Normally after prom parties are very crazy. If you have a close friend who knows more then check with him on the people. Normally they will get other people to bring drinks also so, normally a bottle or two for you to bring should be fine. I cannot think of any good ways to convince your parents, really sorry.

    Don't bring food instead of drinks under any circumstances. If you find it hard to get drinks then try and put some money towards drinks someone else is getting. The time parties end depends when they start, maybe 4-5 hours, and generally there isn't really an "end time" just people start fading out bit by bit when they get taxis/walk home, people won't all leave at the same time. Just stick to some Cider if it's your first house party or some dilute vodka and don't worry about the smoking. Enjoy!
