I've been invited to a dinner party for my boyfriend's cousin's birthday tomorrow and apparently they're grilling steak. This will be the first time I will meet his family and of course I want to make a good impression. Me and him have not been dating for long at all (3 days) haha, although we've been talking for month now.
I’ve asked if I should bring something and he said no. I still feel a little weird coming over empty handed. Should I bring something anyways? And what? A bottle of wine? Any other ideas?
How should I dress?
What are some good things to talk about and what are things to stay clear of discussing?

A bottle of red wine to go with the steaks sounds like a good choice.
How you behave, talk, dress, ...etc. is important, but not important enough for you to "put it on" because you need to impress others around you. If you view yourself through other people's eyes, guess how many people, and how many views you have to worry about in your life ? The earlier you realiaze the adverse effects of this thinking pattern have on you, the more freedom (from things such as anxiety, depressions) you have.
That being said, it is wise to heed general rules such as, be respectful of others' privacy, don't prob (direct or indirect) into others' private lives, if people like to talk about it, they would, even without your asking. Let's say they do, as a general rule it is wise to not get involve in other people's drama. Subjects of conversations is easy if you talk about things you have experienced, preferably something which others share similar experiences...then everyone can contribute and have a good chat. Have a good time !0
