      And onto more pleasant matters! I was gonna go with “Bring Your Own Barbecue Bib”, but I like your tagline better.

        Well, “BYO” definitely stands for alcohol in most places. For example, BYOW restaurants. So it’s only logical to hate guys like Barney who come with empty kegs and look for a way to fill them up. Almost any party I’ve been to in the last 10 years was BYOB.

          Really? I don’t go to parties much, but I think every party (except for one) I’ve been to forine past ten years already had the hosts supplying the liquor.

            Do you live in a country where a 12-pack costs like 6.99? In Canada, all alcohol is pretty expensive. You can buy 100$ worth of party groceries (junk food, plates, napkins etc.) and 50$ in it would be only for booze.

              I live in the U.S. in the Mid-Atlantic (but not for much longer), and I know that there are states where the alcohol costs much more. State tax and what stores are permitted to sell liquor really can affect the price.

                Yes, but moreover, it affect the social factor and the way people spend their weekends. The BYOB policy has become a very common practice in Quebec, since each and every guest brings as much liquor as they plan to consume. Plus, it eliminates the need of calling the cab, because drivers would usually know not to bring any alcohol, as opposed to parties where alcohol is freely provided, where you would have to be careful not to “tempt in”, y’know.

                  Just for local colour: in the UK it’s pretty much expected that you bring an offering of your own, which you might have or might choose to have what the host provides (or, if they’re me, happens to have around), but then if the wine or whatever you bring isn’t touched, you leave it there.

                  Not really sure if is sensible or not, now I see it written down.
