The Birthday Party
Two more "boarders" arrive: Patrick Magee, as a dimwitted hooligan, and Sydney Tafler as an unctuous figure of menace. They are from some unexplained organization. They want to bring Shaw back, or something, or anything. They announce a birthday party for that evening, even though Shaw maintains it's not his birthday. And then begins a long night of drunkenness and horror, ending the next morning with Shaw as a zombie-like victim of -- what?
All your guests will need to arrive 30 minutes prior to your party start time (make sure to include this on your invites!). This allows time for the entire group to get through check-in, verify waivers and store any personal items.
First you will be greeted by your party host! Waivers will be verified; you will receive wrist bands and grip socks and items that will go to the party room will be placed on a cart specifically for your group. After everyone is checked in you will be asked to pay the remaining balance. Anything added during the party and tips can be paid at the completion of the party.
Your party host will ensure your room is set up with plates, cups, napkins and utensils. They will assist with the cake and decoration set-up, food and beverages during the time in the party room and clean-up.

Marking another year around the sun is something worth celebrating. Truth be told, birthday wishes penned in a card or a thoughtfully written and heartfelt message are perfect ways to celebrate someone special. Birthdays are truly a gift, and no matter how old you are turning, each birthday is a reason to get together with your favorite people and have some fun.
If planning a birthday party seems like a difficult task, we've got you covered. If you're looking to take the festivities to the next level, and host a party at home, there are countless themes that will make your fête unique.
For kids, tap into the more magical elements with a superhero party or a celebration centered around unicorns. For teens, plan a version of backyard Olympics (think: cornhole or giant Jenga) or a game night, two ideas that no 13-year-old will roll their eyes at. And, for adults, consider an epic cookout, a bubbly brunch, a cozy fall-themed affair, or even a tropical luau (no beach required).
With a little creativity, these birthday party ideas can even be relatively inexpensive, since you'll be able to lean on items you already own, plus a few simple crafty DIY projects to bring the whole thing together. And if you really want to just sit back and enjoy the day, we've also got ideas to help you plan a small, yet totally fabulous, completely hands-off event. Welcome to our birthday party planning playbook, with tried-and-true party ideas and games to make your celebration simply unforgettable.
Take your guests on a journey with an around-the-world-themed party. Each room of your house should be focused on a different destination, which allows your friends and family to experience multiple cuisines and drinks all at once. Take them to France with Champagne and a cheese spread filled with brie and Roquefort, followed by a trip to Japan filled with sake and sushi. There's no limit to how many destinations you can squeeze into one unforgettable night.
If you're looking for self-care, rest, and relaxation in honor of your birthday, plan a spa party. All you need is a few beauty essentials, like at-home face masks, manicure and pedicure kits, plus a spa-inspired menu (think: tea sandwiches and cucumber water) to make this a luxe and zen experience for you and your besties.
Whether you venture out to a karaoke bar or want to plan a karaoke experience at home, this is a foolproof party idea for music lovers of any age. Make sure your guests come prepared with song ideas, and if you're hosting it at home, have your karaoke machine, decorations, and drinks ready to set the stage for fun.
If you're celebrating a summer birthday, take advantage of the warm weather and set up a formal meal in the midst of your garden or a local park. We love the idea of putting the seating directly on the ground to make the event feel like a fancy picnic of sorts. Don't forget the cafe lights, which add the most perfect glow.
If you're not much of a birthday person, a potluck party might be the best approach. Let your friends and family help you bring the celebration to life by assigning each guest a different course, dish, or item to bring. Make sure the host handles any heavy components or dishes that are difficult to transport. These parties really let your guests shine, which is the perfect situation for those who don't love being the center of attention!
The surest way to bring a smile to your guests' faces? Puppies, of course. Turn your living room into a puppy cafe of sorts, and invite everyone to bring their four-legged friends. Alternatively, you could even turn your party into a fundraiser for shelter animals by asking for donations in lieu of gifts. If you don't feel comfortable asking for cash, suggest donations like old linens and towels, dog or cat food, and other items shelters frequently need.
You don't have to buy fully licensed party decor to host a cool superhero party. Instead, plan out a few easy DIYs, like a city backdrop made out of construction paper, hand-lettered comic strip words, and masked Mylar balloons.
