Alternatively, have your friends hold him down, then take a dump in his mouth, make sure your genitals don't touch him though, that's gay.

You should only charge if you're providing beer too. At least the first time. If it's a huge hit, you can charge next time. How old are you guys? What's the parent situation (if this isn't your own place)?
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

Only do it if you're house isnt too nice, and if theres doors right next to where theyre playing so that your guests dont have to go through your house to get wherever the bands playing, to reduce chances of someone messing up or stealing things, in your house.

Free Beer and pizza if it is a family/friends thing.

I've always wanted to call my band that.... Free Beer and Pizza, tonight starting at 9. It would work. I KNOW it would.

No, make it free. You aren't a venue and nobody knows you.

People can bring there own food, you will look like tools if you sell food and drink.

Seriously, trust me. Any amount of money to get in will be the reason lots of people do something else that night. I'm the same age as you, and when I tell people admission is $3-5, or whatever, their thoughts change and they won't go to the show.

And as far as alcohol, the chances of cops coming to the show due to noise are very high. Assuming you aren't old enough to drink where you live, don't let people bring drugs/booze into the house.

Seriously, I was playing a festival on the outskirts of a town, far away from any houses, and we were shut down due to a noise complaint and the organizers not having the right type of permit.

Keep it clean and free, and it should be a fun time. If you feel like you need money, burn some demo CDs if you have them or sell some other merch.

Keep it strictly friends and family only, or you could be facing a minor disaster. Never ever attempt to turn your home into a music venue, there's too much to go wrong. Keep it to the garden, or else make it a party just for your friends.
