Dinner parties have fallen out of fashion and thank goodness for that. My one-bedroom apartment isn’t conducive to hosting a mob of guests and I am not too keen on spending hours prepping food that will leave a trail of destruction in my tight kitchen. My curated wine collection and well-appointed bar cart are reserved for my closest comrades to imbibe and not for that friend-of-a-friend that showed up unannounced and empty handed. Personally, I prefer something more casual and less labor intensive to gather my friends around. I’m talking about bottle shares and takeout food.
Recently, our partners at Tavour sent over the third installment in our partnership box so I decided to call up the homies (as well as the local pizzeria) to help me tear into the lot of wonderful beer inside. With the small group gathered around my modest dining table, we spent the evening spinning records, cracking cans, popping bottles, and having a good old time. Debauchery documented. To hell with a pretentious dinner party. This is how you bond and create memories.
