EDIT: I AM TAKING NYE Appetizers & soap

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm going to a NYE party as the guest of a band. I want to take some apps for our table. There is a lot of equipment, I also want it to be a surprise and I don't want to add to the load. I can't carry them like I did for Christmas Day, which was in serving dishes wrapped with foil. I'd need to put them in a bag like the strudier reusuable grocery bags. It will be a cheese ball with crackers and mini meat pies. I can put every thing in a bag, but not in very large containers.

I haven't met these guys before but everyone in this business in my town knows on NYE I bring appetizers. I have a reputation to keep up! I think it would be a nice guesture for the the invite and the safe ride to and from the gig. I'll be drinking but there's designated driver of course. Maybe I shouldn't even do this. I can't take a nice bottle of wine because you can't take booze in or out of a night club...The club will already have party favours...I feel I need to do something special.

Thank you so much terri!

So now, I'm taking soap to the club for the ladies. Then there's an after party with rooms at the hotel. SO! I am taking appetizers and I don't have to hide them. It's going to be below freezing all night and they can hang out in the vehicle I ride in and put out at the whatever-hotel-room they end up in.  No one is driving and we will be driven to the hotel.

I'm so glad I got all the ingredients together just in case.

Dang it, I guess I'm going to be riding a lot higher on the hog tomorow then I have been for a long time. Sometimes I guess you just gotta spur your ridin hog until he gets out of the mudhole and make him understand that there is an exit off ramp somewhere on the freeway numbered hard work and hard times.

This worked out very well. I had a great time. As I predicted the ladies did not take to me right away, but when they realized I wasn't his "date" it all worked out. This was in Shawnee, OK, 40 miles east of Oklahoma City and at least a million miles away from the rest of this country. PO DUNK City!

At one point we thought we could order Dominos...The motel key cards had Dominos phone number on the other side of the magnetic strip...Nope, Dominos in Shawnee was closed on New Years Eve.

Meat pies and cheese ball were a hit and I didn't pass out the soap. This was very stressful but I took my ugly-guy-watching-football pajamas and I made some good connections. Besides all of that, I HAD A BLAST!!!

I pray all of you are going to have great blessings upon your families in this new year and I am praying for the same blessings for mine.
