Default 21st Birthday Ideas!

So I'm turning 21 in a month and I'm not quite sure what I should do. I was thinking:
  • just go out to bars with a couple friends and celebrate
  • have a small party
  • have a big party (don't know if I can get enough people to make it BIG enough)

Also my actually b-day falls on a weekday so I won't be able to do any party stuff until the weekend after. I'm excited but also afraid that what I do won't be cool enough, because you only turn 21 once, right?

So I'm asking for celebration ideas, possible party ideas/themes/games. I'm open to any and all suggestions. Nothing is too crazy or out there.

Thanks.

I'm planning on going to New Orleans for my 21st. I don't know what's close or your money situation but going on a trip somewhere can be a lot of fun!

I vote definitely go out to bars and clubs. Why do a house party? You can do that when you are under 21. Is it not possible to go out on your actual bday even just for an hour or so at midnite?

agreed.

My 21st was on a weekday, I went and got margaritas at happy hour and of course food.



Then on the weekend I went to all the 21 and up clubs, why go to a club that allows 18 year olds, when you're in the exclusive club of adulthood.

Definitely go out somewhere and order a real drink at a real bar on the actual day. It's so much fun to do it legally for the first time! Think about what the first legal drink you want to order is.

For the weekend, I suggest a small "pre-gaming" party where you can dance to ridiculous music and take ridiculous pictures in ways that only really make sense in your early 20's. And then go out to a bar/club and be silly in public. :-)

As for party themes...if it's a big party and you have enough space, it's fun to do a variety of different theme drinks/snacks. Have margaritas and chips and salsa in one room, martinis with olives and chips/hummus in another room, beer and nachos in another, wine and cheese in another, etc. Otherwise for a small party just pick one theme in one place and stick with it!

And of course, there are the drinking games...not too easy to describe on the internet, but with cards we used to play Kings or Ass-hole, or without cards quarters, speed quarters, flip-cup, survivor flip-cup (losing team has to vote someone off every time), beirut (not beer-pong..actual beer pong is played with a paddle!), "the finger game" (not at all dirty, as it sounds!), or "zoom, schwartz, bafigliano". I learned a game a few years ago that was amazing that was sort of like quarters but with a ping pong ball and solo cups, and you got to knock (empty) cups away from people and yell at them--I can't remember the last time I has so much fun.

One of the following weekends I'm probably gonna go back home and celebrate with my family and mom, go to the spa and what not. But I do plan to party while I'm at school.

You guys are totally right. Also I'm certain some of the bars have 21 birthday packages!

For my boyfriends 21st i planned a surprise paintball party. It was so much fun, getting all your friends together getting dirty and shooting each other lol. It was supposed to be followed by a night out drinking but everyone was so exhausted it didn't happen
