Episode 40: The Dinner Party

12:00pm, 4-5-2020
<< Tropicology

Whether you are listening in Portland Oregon, or New York City, or even Paris, most of us are under orders to stay in our homes during the Coronavirus event. That keeps us all away from one of my favorite things in life: dinner parties. Today I am paying tribute to this languishing tradition, this pleasure deferred. Today I am playing my ultimate soundtrack for dinner parties. The dinner party will be one of the first things we collectively do when isolation orders are lifted. There is something universal and profound about breaking bread together, as we all know. Few things we do as humans have the same power to bond us together… music is another. So let’s consider this an aspirational mix today; let’s all make a little plan, engage in a little idle anticipation for the dinner parties we will host and attend when isolation protocols go away. Let’s plan our menus, prepare our guest lists, and decide in advance what to wear. Let this be a little rock of hope we can stand on until we do actually sit at a table among friends.
