BYOB BBQ or Dinner party

Dinermite | Sep 28, 2011 12:28 PM

Is it considered tacky or rude to have a BBQ or dinner party, and request your guests to provide their own alcoholic beverages? The host is a recovering alcoholic, and while she is ok with others drinking around her, she doesn't like keeping alcohol around in her house (either before or after-party leftovers). She's providing everything else food and soft drink-wise, and invited others to bring a dish they made only if they wish. Some of the guests I know have grumbled about having to bring their own drinks, but as someone who has seen enoug alcohol abuse in his life, I fully understand her concern and reasoning for the request.
