In brief: Since

Since multiple people were affected from the same party, odds are you all have food poisoning.
Food poisoning is caused by eating food contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites or toxins. Symptoms typically develop 2-6 hours after eating the food and can include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever. Usually, the illness resolves within a few days and you can treat yourself by staying hydrated until it passes. Reasons to call your doctor are: - bloody or black stools - fever over 101f with diarrhea - excessive abdominal pain - no improvement after 2 days - if you think you are becoming dehydrated i've attached a website below with more information. Good luck!
