Yet, for many, the very idea of hosting is troubled- will it be fun? Will it be stressful? Does there need to be a holiday or an occasion like a fotball game to plan a party, etc? Having people over for drinks is fun, tastes delicious, and can foster connection and create space for great conversation. It’s easier than a dinner party, because only light snacks need be served, and the timing of a drinks party is generally only a couple hours, so it’s far less of a social commitment. As gatherings go, it’s as casual as they come.
