We started our shindig off at our friend's apartment across the lake. They had jello shots & sangria, along with some yummy hummus & other snacks. The party then moved to our friends townhouse in the complex, where bunches of us had contibuted food (we arranged that those of us in the complex provided food & liquor/mixers, with guests bringing beer & champagne - usual for us). We had smoked ribs, baked mac & cheese, potato salad, veggies, and i think cake. At my place we had a pepperoni & cheese tray and cookies to snack on while making several different types of 'martini' drinks - appletinis, chocolate martinis, etc. By the time we moved over to our other friend's townhouse everyone had had a few, and all were in high spirits. With so many places to stay - 6 in all - no one had to drive. It worked out beautifully.
