I attended a birthday party for my buddy over the weekend. You know, it was a pretty good time, too. We drank beers, ate some decent barbecue, threw washers, shot the shit, etc. It was a pretty typical postgrad house party. The issue I had with it, though, is that it was a pretty typical postgrad house party. At one point during the evening, I experienced a sudden realization that I will likely never attend a college-caliber party for the rest of my life. I looked around — I saw all my friends, my buddy’s folks, the food spread, party decorations — and I thought to myself, what happened to our parties? They are just…different now.
