1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    You can ask your local lebanese restaurant to deliver a bunch of mezze. Some cheese and meat sambuseks, some kebbe, pickled turnips, olives, etc... If you're worried that people's hands will get greasy/dirty, provide little wooden forks or sticks to eat them.

    Mauro do you want to cook or to order?

    I bet Ray's would cook you up a couple nice plates of stuffed mushrooms, devilish eggs, mini crab cakes and such. And I bet you'd spend enough on it to totally negate the evening's sales.

    Could go lebanese taverna and get grape leaves and cheeses and falafel and whole effing roasted lamb.

    Does whole foods do catering? Their hot bar etc is usually good.

    Can't beat cubes of cheese and pineapple on sticks. For extra calls stick them in half a melon to make a porcupine.

    Wrap (rock) melon with prosciutto. Sounds weird but is very very good.

    Soak water chestnuts in soy sauce and brown sugar for an hour or so (or longer!) in a bowl. Pick them out of the bowl and wrap in liberal amounts of bacon and toothpick. Grill (broil? I dont know, I'm Australian! - What ever heats from above) until bacon is crispy and serve. Easy way to to this is to have them toothpicked and ready to go on the tray you're going to cook them on.
    Handy tip: line baking tray with alu foil.

    Unagi nigiri or grilled chicken wings. The unagi is relatively easy to come by and is already cooked - all you have to do is cut it up and put it under a broiler with the sauce and place it on hand-molded rice. The chicken wings just require any kind of sauce applied after it is grilled or broiled, then finished off to get the sauce to thicken/caramelize.

    mini burgers are great and filling. To make them special have interesting toppings like bbq sauce, aioli, flavored mustards, thousand island dressing, etc.

    That's not pizza, that's some ungodly California amalgamation of random crap on pizza crust.

    Not knowing what your set up is some of these may not be appropriate:

    Mini / bite sized pies (can be as "high end" as you like/budget allows) - relatively mess free as can be eaten in one/two bites
    If you have an outside area, a Pig on a Spit would be pretty memorable
    Mini/personal boxes of noodles / curry w rice
    Mezze plate (note this has already been mentioned)
    Chopped fruit
