    Exclamation Things to bring to a tasting

    I'm going to a tasting next week, and want to bring something everyone can enjoy besides booze. I was thinking palate cleansers but they can be pretty boring. Anything you guys have seen/brought to a tasting before that got a great response?

    French baguette sliced into rounds with a selection of spreads.

    I like where your mind's at! That's way better than a standard palate cleanser.

    We usually get good bread, good cheese, and good chocolate.

    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    Make everyone pretzel necklaces.

    All kidding aside, just bring yourself and an open mind. A special or unique bottle for everyone to try. A pork butt tends to go over well. If it drags on into the evening 3-4 Little Ceasars hot and ready pizzas go over pretty well.
