Buy Alcohol at Warehouse clubs. If you’re not having a BYOB party, then the next best thing is to purchase your alcohol from “membership clubs” like Costco and Sam’s Club. And guess what? Due to state laws, many states allow you to buy without a membership. Membership is not required to purchase alcohol in the following states: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Texas (yea, for Texans!) and Vermont.

When you get to the store, just head over to the customer service desk (right next to the door) and ask for an “alcohol pass,” which you’ll need to show at checkout.
