    How much money do you have to spend? I would call arouns because by time we paid for everyones food cleaned etc it was much easier to goto a hotel and have it catered. Some arent that expensive. If hes a geek and into computer games? Maybe you could just go out for a nice meal and eveyone pays for themselves. I don't think that's stingy at all. You could put money on bar or pay for meals vice versa.

    Also just wanted to add that my friends and I are also "nerdy" and don't drink. For parties the entertainment was usually karaoke on the play station, poker, or just chatting.
    Hope he has a great 21st. So lovely of you to pay for his trip and organize a party!!

    Set up a massive LAN in the house for him and his mates. Or Star Wars/Lord of the ring/Star Trek marathon, or all the released to date Marvel movies. Get some frozen pizzas from Aldi (theyre yumm), add a bit of extra cheese, few bags of chips/lollies and a slab of fizzy. =D

    We bought meat and salads, leb bread as well from our local Kebab shop and all made our own Kebabs for my 21st, we had a fire out the back and music.. I was pregnant at the time and had a HUGE thing for Tabouli (YUM!) so it worked well for me!
    Wasn't exxy and everyone loved it..

    That sounds great. Maybe we could combine that with a LAN/ Magic the Gathering card game tournament.
