So, I have twenty-some unknown Barack Obama supporters coming to my house on Sunday, and I don't know what to do.
So, I had this great idea. I wanted to host an event where local Barack Obama supporters could come together to meet each other and discuss various political topics. Easy enough, I just went to Obama's web site
and posted a "meet & greet" event open to all. Great idea, right?
Now, I have twenty-some random strangers planning to come to my house this Sunday evening, and I have no idea what to do! Please help me!
The session will run from 5:30 - 7:30 PM Sunday evening. I want to make this event as enjoyable and productive as possible for everyone. However, I've never hosted such an event (or any event for that matter), and I'm not sure what to expect. I'm afraid that a bunch of people will show up, stand around in silence for 15 minutes, and then leave.
What are some things that I can do to make the event most enjoyable for all? What can I prepare? Should I have literature available? Should I have snacks? Are there ice-breakers tactics that I can use to loosen people up? Any tips or tricks would be helpful...
