Because Lads, Lads, Lads…Part 2

1. Two Words: Burger Bar

The only thing better than a well-stocked bar is a well-stocked burger bar. Caramelized Onions, this Bacon Jam or this Bacon Jam, crumbled blue cheese, crispy fried shallots, some really good pickles are all solid options. A couple bun options is a nice touch too, we love Martin’s Potato Rolls or whatever the bakery down the street from you has.

2. Phone Punchbowl

Just have the lads drop their phones in a bowl when they walk in the door. Incredible things happen in conversation when nobody has a phone to glance at for an hour or two. Anybody who wants to look at their phone does the dishes, simple and effective.

3. Whenever Possible, Host Outside

Even if you’re grilling up in a park. In general, it’s cleaner, less hassle and better. Scope our list of 5 Tips For Stress-Free Dinner Party Ambience.

4. Consider A Boil

Steaming shellfish dumped onto newspaper with chilled beer is pretty much an entertaining walk off shot. Clam bakes, crawfish boils, oyster roasts and lobster steams are no frills, fun and easy.
