Some people enjoy being a host.
For me, it's in my blood.
A big reason I left home at a very early age is that my mother is a very good cook and I needed my own kitchen to experiment.
I am afflicted with a rare disorder called I.G.S. : Italian Grandmother Syndrome
Which means if you come over you'll eat too much but leave very happy.
I hosted a friday night bbq dinner party for two years straight. And I loved it.
With a team of 200, we fed 5000 homeless a year out of our Church Hall at a Toronto "Out of the Cold" site. I ended my duties as lead coordinator, head chef so to speak.
If I didn't have to "work" for a living, this is what I'd do.
Life has changed in a wonderful way since then.
Marriage. Cat. Dog. Baby.
Which means, meals now...look like this.
So instead of packing up all my entertaining stuff...I hope to build successors to my host-with-the-most legacy
Are you a young person who hosts others at your dwelling?
Can I give you serving trays, special utensils etc..?
I have some $200 bar stools that I want to find a good home
Futon for the guest room or to add seating space etc..

With your help, I'll become the Cosby sweater wearing, bad joke making, minivan driving, spending all hours at home boring loving Dad I need to be!
Thanks for the help.
