“Which HBO gang would you most want to invite for dinner & what would you serve?”
Jodi: I’d say The Wire. And the special of the day would be a me, Jimmy McNulty and Stringer Bell sandwich.
Dana:Although I’m currently hooked on GIRLS and would NEVER decline an opportunity to get sloppy drunk with Lena Dunham, I would have to invite the entire Fisher family from Six Feet Under for a big family-style feast. Roast chicken, mashed potatoes, creamed corn, greens, rolls and plenty of wine to go around. I would slave in the kitchen all day just to have Nate say something offensive right before I serve it. Ruth would passive aggressively step outside, David would defend my efforts; while Claire goes on a rant about corruption in politics. It would all be so wonderfully dramatic.
Man, I miss that show.
Michelle: I’m inviting my Sex and the City girls to brunch at my place on a Sunday early afternoon. I’m taking out my grandmother’s good silver because it’s pretty. We will eat avocado on gluten free toast and drink Pommery Champagne from mini bottles with straws while disguising our sleepless partied out Saturday night eyes and bodies in designer duds. We’ll be dishing about our uber-sexy weekends, there will be no misunderstandings and above all NO BACON.
Reagan: I kind of want to say Omar from The Wire but I have no idea what I’d serve him. Caramelized onion risotto? But actually, I’d have to say Larry David. I feel like he’s so freaking awkward that I could just be awkward too and maybe we’d end up having fun. I’d make him a sandwich. Turkey, antipasto (black olives, roasted vegetables, etc) and mozzarella.
Kari: I kind of got hooked on The Newsroom recently so I’m going to have to say Will McAvoy and the rest of the newsroom staff. Just a casual get-together with appetizers and drinks, I think. Preferably lots of drinks though because it is important that I get to witness a repeat of this (http://youtu.be/lVM3OjvLdcA) in real life because, uhm, what the hell was that?!
Kristina: I could EASILY have the Deadwood boys (droool) over for chicken fried steak with cream gravy and greens. And a little of Dana’s sticky toffee pudding with a bourbon caramel sauce for dessert. And whiskey.
Amanda: HBO in general has passed me by, but after my new found love of the Game of Thrones books, hog roast with the Starks.
