a classic scenario.
invite the nieghbors over and pour the food all over the table. create a mini bar of sorts (tub of beer) and pull it right up to the edge so it seems that you have created some sort of “shrine” on one side of the dining table. mow down and drink. sounds like college, but in this case your wife (secretary) spent 4 hours on her hair do.
its crab season. old bay and extra napkins are necessities. put out your pots or throw down your wallet!
