how about a party that doesn't involve food? I've been to a number of skating parties, for kids' and adults' birthdays. They're expensive to throw, though.

I travel on my birthday usually to a place I've always wanted to go. It's usually the best.

The Great American Pastime - shopping! Crass but often effective.

My spouse doesn't especially like parties. I've done various things to celebrate with him: I've treated him to a shopping spree at his favorite store (sometimes clothing, sometimes electronics), taken him out to a movie, treated him to a favorite restaurant for dinner, taken him to an amusement park, taken him for a drive in the mountains... Are you looking for ideas for yourself or for someone else?

Wine tasting with a few friends is always fun. Just make sure you have a sober driver!

I'm particularly fond of doing something completely new...I've gotten out of that habit in recent years, but past experiences include cycling through the Loire Valley (age 25) and seeing a Broadway show (age 20). This year I'm thinking paragliding or similar. Might be a good time to fulfill one of your wackier New Year's resolutions!

birthday

OP
I am trying to make plans for myself and I am male, I would also like to spend my birthday with friends, but I don't want alcohol.

We went bowling for my husband's 30th birthday with just a couple of our "couple" friends and two of his single friends. It was nice - you could eat or not eat (they don't force you to order) and drink alcohol or not. It was a really good time without an elaborate party.

how about hosting a cooking party at your house? each guest could pick up some of the ingredients from a selected recipe and you could all join forces and talents and make a meal. you can let people know that their will be no alcohol served at the party. you could even go so far as to check out what's coming up on the food network or similar channel and record a program that includes some of the food you want to make. then you could all refer to the show while you are preparing the food. you could add in a theme - ethnic themes are great, because you can all dress up, too. and you can make fun non-alcoholic drinks to match the theme. lime-ade slushies for mexican or spanish foods, mango lassis for indian foods, you get the idea.

if you don't want to be inside, you could go to a park and have a barbeque, sit around a camp fire after dinner, roast marshmallows, tell ghost stories. of course, it depends where you live.

Get tickets to a show (theater, concert, sporting event, etc.) or exhibit (art museum, science center...), something that's of interest to the birthday girl (or boy). It's a fun thing to enjoy with others, and doesn't involve food or alcohol. Plus, it's a good excuse to do something that you wanted to do anyway.

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
