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.

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.

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
