“I was shocked that this was nowhere on Zaar. We're getting older now and sometimes forget about our old party days! The last Spodie Odie we hosted was in, oh... about 1985. We had the receptacle out on the deck in the backyard. If you host one of these parties, keep the brand new garbage receptacle SMALLER than we did back then! And make plans for overnight guests and take away car keys. We always liked to serve in mayonnaise jars just for the tackiness factor, but I would suggest some sturdy wine glasses, and think of it as an impromptu SANGRIA!”
