This website is a collection of things that interest me; parties, food, home entertaining, drinks, travel, recipes, & a bit of Chicago stuff sprinkled in. I hope to inspire more people to get together and PARTY & attend FOOD EVENTS! To assist you on the journey of hosting a party, I will showcase interviews about hosting a party like those featured in my Behind the Party interviews along with doing my best to blog about topics that are party related. Also, showcased will be topics that relate to food, drinks, travel, and food events (especially the ones with a competition element).  Blended in will be cross sharing of information from my new project, Taste Explorers...more details in future.  Much appreciation for your time in allowing me to influence you as I want to…bring people together, one party and food event at a time!
