Hosting a Dinner Party, Your Thoughts?

Ideas for my party:

Cocktails like English milk punch, gin, apple toddy, or white tiger’s milk.

Then baked venison and mulligatawny soup. Along with vegetables. Maybe a tart or mince meat pie for dessert. Served with port and wine.

Rousing parlor games such as the Minister’s Cat, Are you there, Moriarty?, and Blind Man’s Buff.

Then, to end the evening, we will all sing hymns and Gilbert and Sullivan around the piano.

For the vegetables, I was thinking beets, cabbage, turnips, and potatoes

Datalounge may well be your family, OP, but most families talk to each other, not to themselves.

Which may be why you've managed to offend so many people here so as to be grey-lined in half an hour.

Which, honestly, is an accomplishment.

Mince meat pie is not a dessert!
