Kicking A** and Taking Coats

Time to dish about how we party!

'Tis the season to throw a little shindig or two and I'm looking at all these magazines in the grocery store featuring happy women with serving trays. This word keeps popping up that I mostly associate with tawdry Japanese nightlife: 'hostess with the mostess', 'hostess gifts', etc., etc.

Whether you're tasked with stimulating scintillating conversation, keeping Gramma's eggnog filled or putting together a spread for the Grey Cup party that you're not actually expected to attend, it would appear these mags expect me to do, shall we say, more festivity-facilitating than a dude.

Lots of us look forward to some good schmooze, and hey, also to strapping on an apron and dusting the kitchen with icing sugar and then festooning everything with tinsel, but is entertaining still a woman's work or are we coming out the other side?

    Thanks for organizing! I'll post a link to the Feminist Frequency blog I was mentioning at the beginning.

    Ok, I've reserved under 'Tara' and important note: they only take cash.
