    Have only enough food to last 30-60 minutes. You don't want people shitfaced with expensive clothes around them eating food. Have food ready for the die hards the will come early to shoot the shit with you. Those with lives or that are too cool for school are SOL with food. Chances are they would have eaten already anyway.

    Fuck it, just order a bunch of boxes of McD chicken nuggets. You would be considered a god.

    My fiance made a mean Buffalo Chicken Dip with her crockpot this past Halloween. If I remember correctly it's cooked chicken tenders, Blue cheese dressing, Cheddar, Hot Sauce, and some other stuff all put together and melted. Slightly messy, but if you get some Tostitos Scoops, you're all good. [​IMG]

    That's fucking gross. Ro-Tel tastes more like the can than the peppers. Drowning it in Velveeta just makes it more disgusting.

    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.
