I have spoken to a couple of Police officers and I haven't been able to get a straight answer out of them. Is it legal to carry on someone elses private property when alcohol is being consumed, not by the person carrying, just by other guests. Example... if you go to a party at someone's house and alcohol is being consumed. I know it is not legal to carry in a bar, so would this be the same situation? Or would it be different because it is a private residence?

Thanks in advance...

My understanding is that you cannot carry concealed on your CCW inside a commercial establishment that sells/serves alcohol. At your buddy's backyard BBq I would say no prob.

Ditto. Nothing illegal about it because it is private property. Now if the property owner asked you not to and you still did, then he could probably have you arrested for trespass just like business' that have "no firearms" postings can do.

My two cents, so long as you have a CCW, you can carry on private property where alcohol is being served, but if you are asked not to carry and you do anyway, that is a crime.

Actually, on private property, you can drink like a fish AND carry concealed (or in the open for that matter) so long as the owner of the property is okay with it. Having said that, only an idiot would take a chance of having something untoward happen and, were I at my friend's house, I would ask him/her to hold my weapon AND my car keys if I planned on some heavy imbibing.

Of course, that is just my opinion. I could be wrong.
