Bring as much booze as you'd drink. If you don't plan to drink at all don't bring anything.

If you go to a BYOB party and don't BYOB, you don't drink. It's not hard.

Brahs are for ladies brah.

IMO the concept of BYOB is dickish. Never encountered it over here in the UK, it's not like we expect the host to provide all the beverages, but I think it's dickish to establish a tradition that says 'Well if you don't bring your own booze you aren't drinking, might aswell not turn up, go on **** off.'

Naturally, if you notice someone suspiciously never brings any drink to social functions, then they're the dick. Otherwise hold them to their honour that they'll return the favour next time.

Far from home

But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone

It's really not dissimilar to going to the bar without cash.

A party that asks you to bring your own bottle.

I don't know, I'm no party guy. I just thought it was like a fair warning for people to bring their own bottle so not to be surprised they had none when they got there.

I've had friends who've done that, and I've bought them drinks, enough in a few cases to get them seriously hammered. And visa versa, it's all about the honour system.

I mean intentionally going, just to bum off people.

If you forget your wallet and you're a good friend, I'll buy your drinks. I've done it and had it done in return. But if you're just some random dude that shows up to a BYOB party without liquor, you stay away from mine.

EDIT - I say "forgot your wallet", but that's a lot less likely than "I forgot my cash/don't have money now". If they forgot their wallet, they probably wouldn't be allowed to drink lol. Just clarifying that.

I've never encountered anyone who's turned up for any kind of alchohol based social occasion empty handed just to piss everyone off. There's a good chance they might actually value the company of you and your guests, and that they wish to be included in your occassion despite their lack of duckets. I do not begrudge them their lack of finance, I'd rather get them pissed and see what happens.

Like I said, if you notice a pattern, then you can declare a state of dickitude.

Amongst my mates we call that a "six pack cunt." Dicks that show up to a party with just a six pack and say they only wanted to drink six. Its always nice to leave the house with a bit of booze because thy have to clean up all your shit the next day.

When they all look like Scumbag Steve, or are walking around just asking for a shot or a beer, I know exactly what they're doing. If they're just hanging out, and not trying to bum, then they're actually very likely to be offered drinks. You generally know who's doing what.

Every party I've ever been to, it was just expected that you bring your own drinks. I mean, who the hell wants to pay for all that booze plus have to deal with drunks?

It's not 'just' to piss people off. It's more likely (especially if you have a very large network of friends) that there will be one or two people invited (whether it's BYOB or not) who are just going to walk around asking for a shot, a brew, or a hit of some weed.

An example being one time I hosted a party (was not, btw, BYOB officially. We had two drums of Jungle Juice and about 6 twenty-four-cases of beer provided from the get-go), and at one point in the night, there's four separate guys wondering around, who one of my three roommates knew vaguely, asking for free hits and shots (this was after the provided alcohol was gone).

This is the situation you're trying to avoid by asking for a BYOB, especially if you live on a campus and you get the oh so loved 'wander-ins' who just hop party to party trying to jack free beers.

I understand what you're trying to say here. In my friend group we try to keep it pretty civil, where if I'm short on cash and you have a lot of it, then you'll spot me drinks, probably get me hammered, and this creates a silent pact where I'm definitely getting you hammered another night down the road (and the debts, if one were to keep score, especially to $$$ amount, probably are not at all even, but it's fair if it's friends), but it sounds like OP is trying to go to some party where he hardly knows the owner (maybe his friend does, but even that's sketchy if it wasn't pre-planned), it's BYOB, and he wants to get drunk off of people that didn't have such a pact of friendship mentioned above already established with OP. That is not ok. As I said earlier, the only person in that situation that has any sort of right to non-friend's beer is the host.

It's fine if you don't drink, but if you start going around looking for free drinks then you're a ****** TS. Nobody likes a ******.

Unless it's a Christmas party or a wedding or something that would be... pretty much every party I've ever been to. You bring your drink, you drink your drink.

If you don't bring your own, I don't know what you expect to be drinking. When we bring drink to parties we don't put it in some communal area and feel ok that we've contributed then treat that area like a bar... we drink what we brought.

It's pretty much the standard here. I've never been to a party that's needed to specify BYOB, it's just how it works.
#35
I don't see what's wrong with it.

It'd be different if they were going to try and scab drinks off people, but if you go there dry and someone offers your a drink, I see no problem.....Done it plenty of times myself
Come back if you want to
And remember who you are
‘Cause there's nothing here for you my dear
And everything must pass

Bring as much as you intend to drink.

Most parties or gatherings i go to are BYOB, but it's not explicitly outlined, just expected that you do it, although i do know a guy who would buy a crate or two of beer if he's having people over, but he asks that they bring any additional alcohol they want, because a 24 pack wouldn't really go very far amongst 8 people or more.

I find it really annoying, and dickish when i show up to a party with maybe 8 beers, and then about two hours later, some people stroll in, see it sitting there, and take some without asking. People shouldn't have to feel like they have to hide their drinks because someone doesn't want to pay for themselves.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

The only person that should be able to get away with that is the host(s).


Yep! You could maybe get away a little bit with it, but if you know its BYOB already, then its inapropes, lol.

Re-reading the OP, I should mention there's nothing wrong with going to a party and not drinking. It just sounded like you meant you were going to go to a party planning just to sponge a couple off other people, which isn't cool.
