Dear friends,
 
I īve encountered the following sentence and I īm not sure if it īs correct. What do the native speakers say?
 
Last night I went to my best friend īs John īs party.

I would change it to 
Last night I went to my best friend John īs party.
Hope this helps.

Yes, Karin is definitely right.
 
Since "John" is slang for "toilet", the original sentence would be about the party of my best friend īs toilet. LOL
