Howdy, Pardner

just to explain for "ignorant" foreigners (like me):

pardner
/ˈpɑːdnə/

noun: pardner; plural noun: pardners

non-standard spelling of partner, used to represent dialect speech.

"I'm here with my pardner, Tex"

I give

“Play Party” ? Over the last week or so this comes up with the pictures of older teenagers and young adults. I have never heard this term in this context. Please explain.
