NYE's post mortem

Short version: The foodie/cocktailian potluck was pretty good.

Longer version: The salmon/blini thing FLEW. Even a couple of hours after they had disappeared, people meandered by the server as if a new platter would materialize. This leads me to the conclusion that some of you might be getting a gravlax and a jar of blini mix (add egg & milk).

The artichoke thing went down well also. But the salmon was the colossal hit.

Drinkswise, limoncello sours, Buena Vistas (a mint daiquiri or soda-less mojito, if you will) and Lapu-Lapu were the big deals. A few Mai-Tais were also slung out.

Someone else made a great flan, and a pretty good chili was there to be had.

By 12:03am I was utterly exhausted.

Today I am running on pure caffeine. I'd hate to see what my adrenal gland looks like today...I'm figuring it may resemble a rather abused walnut.

Happy Twenty Ten.
