When I have my own kitchen after moving from the Outpost to the Box, I plan to throw dinner parties periodically! If you live in the Bay Area or are liable to visit the area, please let me know if you wish to be considered (or not considered) for invitation to dinner parties. I know a lot of people and the Box is of a finite size, so not everybody will be invited to each one, and I can have fun customizing them for different sets of guests: let me know your dietary preferences, who you should and should not be invited at the same time as, whether you are interested in attending parties that have features other than dinner (e.g. games, hanging out watching a movie, cuddlepiles, whatever), preferred party size, whether it is important that you be allowed to bring a plus-one, and other interesting things!
Please don't worry about overloading me with too many (sincere) preferences. I like this sort of challenge!
