A social event were a group of people all convene at one location and attempt to have a good time. Party activites include (but are not limited to) things such as:
1) Listening to music
2) Consuming drugs and/or alcohol
3) Trying (and often failing) to get laid
*Men do not normally dance. However, women (who do normally dance) can change this. A man's girlfriend or wife may "ask" (aka force) him to dance with her and/or her friend(s) (often the ugly one). Some men will also dance in attempt to contact or impress females.
A party can be at a bar, resturaunt, club and often someone's house. There are some specialty parties for events such as birthdays and holidays.
Doug went to a party with his buddies. He got drunk and smoked some pot. Near the end of the party, he did some ecstacy, started dancing and hooked up with some random, but attractive, chick. The next morning, he woke up to find himself is someone else's car spooning a fat chick. He later met back up with his friends and found out that he was the only one that managed to get laid, so that made it worth it (kinda).
