Birthday Party Question

Kurt's 13th birthday is on October 20th.
Usually I have his party elsewhere - at a bowling alley or mini golf or whatever. Last year, I just paid for him and 3 friends to go to the movies.
This year I suggested having a Halloween/Birthday party on the 31st (and just have a family party/dinner on his actual birthday). Nothing too big though. He usually goes trick or treating with about 5 or 6 other boys so I thought we could invite them over for dinner, then they could go trick or treating for a while and then come back here and play RockBand/ Guitar hero then call it a night. It can't go too late because Kurt has swimming early the next morning and I'm not up for a sleepover.
Is that lame? I don't even know anymore. Kurt said that's fine, but he says "that's fine" about everything so I didn't know how to take it.
Should I make it more structured? I'm pretty sure that they won't want me hovering over them trying to force a game of Bob for Apples but on the other hand, I can't deal with one teenager looking at me like he's bored out of his mind, nevermind 6 of them.
SOOOO, my questions are: is that a lame idea? Should I suggest something else? Any other suggestions/advice/opinions?
