MORE ABOUT NO-HOST
What does no-host mean?
No-host describes an event, such as a party, at which the guests must pay for their own food and drink or pay an entry fee.
A Western US term, no-host is almost always used in reference to a party or similar event at which attendees pay to enter or pay for any food or drink they consume. You might go to a no-host dinner, a no-host networking event, a no-host dance—any type of event that requires you to pay to enter or for food and drink or both.
Sometimes no-host is used more literally to describe an event that lacks a host, especially an event that usually has a host. The 2019 Academy Awards didn’t have a host and was commonly described as a no-host award show.
Example: I got invited to some fancy no-host party for Independence Day, but I don’t know if I have the money for another one of these.
