There was no rsvp number on the invite, so I can't just call and ask.
Ds 9 was invited to a bday party at a bounce play place. I Have another ds 7,and ds 18 months. I know it would be rude to bring them as well, and youngest ds is too small to play. So i was going to just drop ds 9 off at the party and take other two to chuckie cheese. Is it rude to drop him off? Would you be okay with it if it was your ds party? Ds is excellent behavior wise, so no worries there.

At that age I would think drop off is fine.

I would just take ds to the party and ask the host what she would prefer.

Agreed.It's kind of weird that they didn't include a number or email to rsvp to 

Quoting thePBandJmom:

I'd drop him off and stay close around the neighborhood. Granted, the mom was fine with that.

If I didn't know the parents, I wouldn't just drop off.  I would take my other kids and have the one invited to the birthday party sit with the party group and I would sit elsewhere.  That way I'm not bringing uninvited kids, but my child is not left with people I don't know.

I'd prefer you just drop your kid off.

I have seen kids as young as 5 being just dropped off.  Most parents I would guess would assume that the parents are just going to drop the kids off for the party.

 IMO, kids don't need to go to birthday parties if  they aren't old enough to be away from their mothers for an hour  or two, and school age kids ARE old enough. Why in heaven's name would a 9 year old not be able to go to a party by himself? Why  do you people not want to let your children have any independence whatsoever?
