Do you ever want to spend time with friends, but don’t want to spend lots of money on a restaurant? I know that I really want to spend time with people. Consider a potluck dinner.
You can select the house (yours or theirs) and then everyone brings something. To kick it up a notch, try having a menu based on a certain cuisine. I and some friends got together at a friend’s home and the theme was Chinese food. The hostess made moo shoo pork and the rest of us brought the sides.
I know people who get together on a regular basis for dinner clubs, wine tastings, movie nights and more. What appeals to you? Think about which of your friends would find it fun to have an inexpensive dinner party. Make a plan with your friends.
