Ok like 16.
Dan and I hosted our very first party and first house concert, featuring Drew Kennedy. The concert was also used as a kick-start for his new album, which he played in it’s entirety. No, it’s not cheap, but it’s really a neat experience to go to. Small number of people and very intimate. This was the 3rd or 4th i’ve been to, but our first time hosting. It was hard, because we couldn’t invite everyone, in fact, I didn’t have anything to do with the logistics other than being there and getting the massive amount of groceries and helping food prep.
The food was awesome, or at least I thought so. I finally got to use my new Auburn serving platter! That’s homemade jalapeno summer sausage that my dad made.
Dan smoked a bunch of meat (bacon wrapped pork tenderloins, Canecuh sausages from Alabama, and a brisket), made his mom’s potato salad, beans, I made my mom’s famous 7 layer dip. We also had people bring oriental slaw, 7 layer greek dip, brownies, an awesome fruit bowl, and lots of drinks (our whole kitchen table was a bar).
and they dug into his cookie cake (writing in Auburn orange of course!)
I think it’s safe to say, a good time was had by all. The evening ended with a 18 person slumber party! It’s a good thing we have room.
It got cleaned up for the most part, but then we all went to the softball benefit and I never finished the job. Not spotless, but it’ll do until the weekend.
