You don't need fireworks to show your patriotic colors this weekend. At my house, cool drinks add just the right splash to our annual party. So get hosting this 4th of July and create your own Classic All-American Bash!
I have a soft spot in my heart for the Kentucky Derby. I'm not a betting kind of woman, or a proponent of mistreating animals in any way, but something about all that glorious horseflesh (especially in high-definition) makes my heart race.
Mint juleps are delicious drinks, and people drink them quickly. Even the host of the party needs some time to handicap the race, call in some bets, and watch the post parade. The solution is to batch them.
If America is truly supposed to be exceptional in all things, why do other countries -- almost without exception -- decide our governmental structure isn't really for them, when it comes time to choose?
I'm not saying the Tea Party wackadoodles shouldn't be exposed by the Left, to show the lunacy and nastiness being openly displayed by some Tea Partiers. But it doesn't mean the movement itself is solely comprised of such gadflies.
Listen up, parents. Prom night is not the time to look the other way or be vague in talking to your children. The focus should be on health and safety. This is the time to ask questions, to be observant, and to take precautions.

We seem to wake up each day and think we have the very complex situation figured out, but that quickly changes. Neither Afghans nor ex-pats can read the runes; there is a darker sense overhanging everything.
At Ferrazzi Greenlight, alcohol is just one tool in our party kit. Other strategies are just as critical, probably more so, to helping our guests step outside their norms and truly connect with others in an honest, intimate way.
