dude throwing a house party is bound to get shit broken, stolen, and caught probablly. just stick with this idea... they are usually not sketchy.
take advantage of this please. Call your best buddies, get COOL chicks (hot ones that aren't annoying and will respect your shit) set up a pong table in your basement and let shit happen. these kind of parties are chill as fuck. try to invite a girl that you know you have a chance with too..makes shit better for you.
