DON'T

Show up empty-handed, no matter what. Bring a side dish or appetizer. And if cooking isn't your specialty, wine or utensils are always appreciated.

DO

Have an activity planned. Whether it's a movie screening or pumpkin-carving contest, find something to keep the group entertained. But beware, Uno and other games can end friendships.

DON'T

Forget the wine. Or get crafty with a signature cocktail. But also don't forget the nonalcoholic beverages for those who don't partake.
