So, I've decided to hold a Blackout Nostalgia Party on Saturday August 14th. A year ago I was forced to walk down from 86th Street in Manhattan to Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, and the trip (and the encounters along the way) are now one of my fondest memories of my (so far) 8 years in NYC. The party will, of course, be entirely candlelit, and very informal. So far I am planning to serve...
- melted ice cream (heh heh)
- a "blackout cake" (very dark chocolate cake)
- something with blackberries
but need more ideas, especially for savory items, ideally fitting the theme. I know that grilled food would be very much in the spirit of that night, but I have only a small indoor electric grill, but I suppose I could use it for prepping the food.
