The Sweets Table in front of the fireplace

For the Sweets Table Melissa brought a lot more lightness than the other tables. White table mats and white frosted votives, white candlesticks and the absence of pewter made the sweets buffet feel lighter, not just look more light colored. But reminders of Halloween were still there with the arrangment of Verso RINKI Pot holder and Verso KIVI Pot holder in red, bright bloody red.

Sometimes Take Out Says I care. I care A Lot a lot.

Al Fresco BBQ Buffet. Notice the cool and closed grill in the background. Yup. That's how we roll at Dinner Series. Well, sometimes.

Especially when it’s served like this! Makes me want to go, “Hee Haw!” at the sight of food looking this good.

But let’s backtrack a bit. It’s not that we didn’t care. Oh no, that’s not it in the least. That we got takeout for this Dinner Series event especially for the Dinner Series and Didriks team and friends had nothing to do with caring or not caring.

Actually, the fact that Jonathan suggested Red Bones BBQ with all the fixings, I think, was a testament to just how much we care. And, well, just how much we all work!

Cheers To Being Past Our Salad Days!

Last week, the freshmen of Harvard began to move into the dorms. I almost ran over a few of them while riding my bike to work. There were several ironies encapsulated in this brief run-in with the class of 2015.

Salad Days is the theme for this Dinner Series event, not only in recognition of back-to-school time, but also as a hurray to no longer living in salad days.

One irony was that September no longer holds the gross tang of fresh binders and buying other back-to-school stuff, thank God, but I still purchased mix-matched wine glasses from the student supplies bin parked on the north end of the main Harvard campus.

Two was that while I think I look and dress a helluva lot better now than back when I was a freshman, the 17 year-olds have that glow of youth, which in many ways is synonymous to beauty.

Three was that while I mentally shuddered and shook my head, ‘no’, at the naivete, the pimples, the exam cramming headed their way (pun intended), I still felt nostalgic. For the sense of everything being possible, the high metabolism, the astonishingly quick hangover recovery, the not having to worry about finding a job and making money.

I felt ambivalent. What gets me through these moments of ambivalence and unease and uncertainty, which is pretty much the steady state of my life, is a great meal, wine, and amazing friends.

Salad Days is the theme for this Dinner Series event, not only in recognition of back-to-school time, but also as a hurray to no longer living salad days, which, though awesome while it lasted, is in the past and, frankly, my life now is pretty fantastic.

Cocktail #5’s Cheese Platter

For this cocktail, we decided to add a cheese platter. Besides the fact that I love cheese, when I think wine, I think cheese so it just made gustatory sense, which in my book is always good sense.
