TIP: You may decide to have a large container or cooler filled with 
cold drinks on ice. Cold beer in tubs or if a really large crowd 
can have small keg of beer. The last party I went to they had 
nonalcoholic beer on tap. Nobody seemed to mind that
 at all. Safer too.


TIP: Soups or Chili are always a good choice to have in slow cookers.
 Fill the slow cooker and have an extra pot on the stove keeping 
warm to add when necessary.
