Dinner Party

THE BEST FOOD & DRINKS FOR GAME NIGHT

Choose the perfect food and drinks for your game night

The key to successful refreshments (and your sanity) is to choose low maintenance options. For food, choose a recipe that can be made in advance and simply thrown into the oven when guests begin to arrive. Crockpot appetizers are also a great choice. Of course, takeout or delivery food is also an easy, if not more expensive, option. Again, your goal here should be to spend as little time as possible tending to food while your guests are in your home. After all, a game night should revolve around games and having fun. And that should include you!


For drinks, be sure to have plenty of options on hand. We recommend 2 or 3 different choices of soda, water, and a non-carbonated option at a minimum. If you plan to serve alcohol, first off – observe these safety guidelines! And secondly, as great as serving an artisian crafted cocktail sounds, if you can't premix it – ditch it! Making the first few drinks might sound like fun, but you will quickly find yourself spending all evening making drinks and not much else.


Below you will find some of our favorite, simple food and drink recipes for your next game night.
