I won’t even bother with grandstanding on the importance of participating in the political process. If you’re planning to vote, you already know that. If you’re not…well, I guess the beauty of democracy is choice…even a silent one.
Instead, lets focus on the real fun: election-night parties!! Whether you’re hosting a group of friends, heading to one of the big political rallies, or simply plan to kick back at home in front of CNN…its a great excuse for merriment. So, why not get into the theme a bit with some election-inspired snacks! A few easy ideas include:
– Blue (state) Tortilla Chips and dip
– Red (state) Velvet Cupcakes
– Fiery Right-or-Left Wings
– Cut-out-the Pork Rinds
– Chicken Mc(Cain)Nuggets
– Ba-Racky Road ice cream
– Baked Alaska, Eskimo pies or Klondike bars
And to drink….be sure to offer beverages in (Joe) Six-Packs (I recommend High Life or Schlitz).
