Best pro-tips for managing a five day drink-a-thon

I'm home for the holidays and seeing many friends after years apart. I have five days, each consisting of brunch, lunch and dinner with others, and am looking forward to unimaginable quantities of free alcohol. I am a seasoned (pickled?) drinker that does not normally get hangovers but never have I been on such a social whirlwind with so many opportunities to celebrate. Does anyone have advice for overcoming the potential weaknesses of the flesh to rise to this challenge? Or, how to pace myself when offered so much free deliciousness? Details below [more inside]

I need to turn a phrase into a fabulous, resplendent holiday party

I just became the person to put together a 125 person holiday party (I have the caterer, location and liquor confirmed as of today) for our top-level donors. How do I execute on the phrase "looking forward towards the future" which is the somewhat vague theme that I was given from my boss to make the decorations, theme, etc, come together in one beautiful swoop?

My wife loves going out to celebrate New Year's Eve in style, but we've got a three-week-old baby this time around. How do we celebrate at home, just the two (well, three) of us? If you mark the occasion in this style, how do you do it? [more inside]

holiday party ideas

My girlfriend and I are hosting a holiday/apartment-warming party in a few weeks, and we're not sure how to entertain our guests beyond providing music and drinks. We hope everyone will get along and make conversation pretty easily, but just to be safe, we'd like some ideas on how to keep them occupied. Any suggestions? Thanks.

A great frozen drink.

We are having a block party of sorts this weekend. What is a good frozen drink I can share with my neighbors? I'll do margarita's most likely, but want something a little different that's not gonna knock everyone on their ass to add to the mix.
