Did Somebody Say Labor Day Party?

I really wish I could cancel the party this Saturday, but it's far too late for that. We're hosting a going-away/end-of-summer party for a friend of Kristin's who is moving away in a couple weeks. We decided to host it a couple months ago, long before I realized just how swamped I would be with work this week. Nevertheless, the party goes on... even if I have to stay a bit more sober than I'd otherwise prefer.

Should be pretty fun too. I'm picking up a bushel of oysters for steaming on Friday, we've got the makings of about 60 various chicken, steak, and shrimp ka-bobs, and perhaps most importantly we've got a couple of kegs of beer: Maritime Brewing's Seattle Lager and Snoqualmie Brewery's Pale Ale. I just hope the 30 or so people coming are thirsty. And not just for beer, either...

We saw this in the store the other night and just had to grab it for the party. We stocked the bar pretty well the other day, but I think we might just need to make pitchers of Lemon Drops or Kamikazis, otherwise a game like this could have some pretty ugly (and by ugly, I mean hysterical) consequences. Fans of Price is Right are certainly going to recognize the influence, but it's not Plinko, it's Drinko!

So is the idea of Drinko that you line up a bunch of shots of vodka and then give each contestant an olive to run through the game? :)

Are there five different shots and you take the shot that your coin falls into? You assumed we all would know what this game is.

Pls. revise post with game rules. LOL
