Pot Luck Dinner Details:

As usual the evenings dinner will be pot luck. Please post in your Evite RSVP what you are bringing. Also take a look at what others are bringing when deciding on your own dish. If things really get whacky as far as dishes (remember the year of all meat dishes?) I will try and put a note up in the “Event Conversation” section on Evite.

Please be prepared to take your leftovers home with you. !

“That Damn Bar”: Details:


As usual we will have cider on tap, misfit beers, and a selection of sodas and mixers.


You are more than welcome to BYOB—there is space for coolers outside or you can use the basement fridge if there is room. All beers left behind get added to the misfit beer collection for future visitors.


We will also have the full bar open for those that would like a mixed drink. If you plan on drinking from the open bar we ask that you donate a bottle to the bar in exchange.

Please refer to our bar list when deciding what to donate.

White Elephant Details:


The White Elephant is a blind gift exchange. All gifts should arrive wrapped and be handed off to the designated gift host upon arrival.

Gift Guidelines:


One gift per person, and please only one gift per “couple”


There are NO RULES as to what can be gifted, Examples from years past include: Booze, Old Tennis Shoes, Yeager shot chilling machine, NSYNC action figures, “Toys”, etc, etc, etc. Nothing is too over the top !If you give a gag gift like old tennis shoes add something fun, like booze too.
