I love house parties, with my group of friends they're normally quite close, you know, no more than 30-40 people, and not loud and offensive, we drink, we get drunk, we make fools of ourselves, but we have a lot of fun doing it.
As for a night out at the pub (aside from the money thing) I don't enjoy it, I mean I'll go to the pub for a few drinks with friends, but we won't be there more than an hour or so because of the atmosphere.
And when we do go clubbing, I enjoy it, but I hate it. Like Lucy mentioned, we have pre-drinks before going to town because the prices are ridiculous ($7 for a pint?!?!?!) but we're normally sensible, we sometimes start drinking round 6pm, and drink for 4 or 5 hours before getting the train into town, whereas some people will knock back as many drinks in the hour before the train, and more often than not they can barely stand. We drink to get that buzz before hitting the clubs. what I hate about the clubs (Aside from the fact that I cant dance for shit xD) is the music, it's the same in every club. That and occasionally someone tries to cause trouble with someone in our group, or someone in our group goes a little too far with the drinks, and someone has to look after them until the bus home, and looking after a too drunk friend often puts a major damper on everyones night.
