In Response to A really fun dinner party!?:
I once attended a very unique party but I can't remember what it was called. It envolved several courses and a menu that each guest picked what they wanted for course. The twist was that the items on the menu were not identified by the name of the food. It was more like a clue, a puzzle, a mind teaser or just something goofey that you would never connect with what it actually was until you saw it on the plate and then you would get it. Example: Avalanch=mashed potatoes, snow ball=scoop of vanilla ice cream. Even the utensils were on the menu. The way it worked out, you could end up with desert first, meat with no utensils, ect... It was really funny and everyone had a great time. Anyone know what this is called or have a menu for one?

We had a dinner similar to what you are describing but instead of using words, we picked our food by number with the same results. You may get a fork and ice cream and a napkin for course 1, etc. It was called a Mystery Dinner and the teenagers loved it. We did one for our oldest daughter's 16 th birthday party. We were fortunate enough to own a small restaurant at that time. We held the dinner after hours on a Saturday and it went over really, really well.
