This was our first apartment and my roommate and I had almost no furniture which lent itself to great parties since we never had to worry that something would get broken. We also had a closet that was about 4 feet wide and 28 feet long (Yes, 28! It was like a cave and we needed a flashlight to see at the far end.) – long enough that when we had a party we could put every single breakable thing in storage. We would rent a keg and stick in a bed of ice in the tub and invite all the neighbors so no one would complain about the noise. We also invited the landlord, knowing he would not come under the assumption that if someone complained he would think – how bad could it be, they invited me? That was our strategy and it worked.
Before the party, we would borrow a friend’s car and drive out to Keebler’s where another friend worked in the office. She would let us in and show us to the trash where any pallet of crackers that bumped into something so a box got dinged was thrown out even if the other 300 boxes were untouched. There were always a few pallets of boxes of crackers. We would fill the trunk and back seat with assorted undamaged boxes and have more crackers than could possibly be eaten – all for the $5 it took to refill our friend’s gas tank.
And so, on a Friday or Saturday night, we would throw open the glass doors, crank up the stereo (My roommate’s brother owned a high end stereo store and gifted her with amazing equipment.) and dance until we were practically sleeping standing up. It was kind of amazing, really, that we had such huge parties with so many drunk people and never had a big fight.
Now I cannot imagine inviting 100 people into a small one bedroom apartment, but you know, in college you’re allowed to be an idiot – some of the time.
