Party Planning

Planning your next party can be stressful and expensive. How much do you buy? How much will people drink? Having too much can be considered a waste, having too little can be down right disastrous. In the event you do buy too much alcohol, the bright side is that many merchants will take returns on unopened bottles AND in the event they wont, alcohol takes relatively long to go bad.  Hopefully with our help here at Intoxicology 101 you won’t have to deal with these issues. Below I’ve provided some information to help you plan your next get together.
