Grabby Entertaining. (no, I didn't mean 'crabby', I actually said 'grabby') See, I'm not the only one having 'scrooge like tendencies' this year. It seems that Grabby Entertaining is becoming the norm. The economic mindset has transformed the way many people entertain today. Long gone is the 'just bring yourself' wink & hug - now it's 'would you mind bringing a bottle of wine or two, some beer, a cool appetizer, a salad and a dessert for the buffet table'. Yes. Hosts everywhere are getting awfully 'grabby'. I mean 'crabby'.
