Party crashing or simply: We're probably on the guest list

December 3, 2009 - Taste Buds
IT SEEMS party crashing is something of an Olympic sport for the kinda-rich-wannabe-famous of the world.

Last week, Michaele and Tareq Salahi (in)famously found themselves at a White House State dinner. While they maintain they were invited guests, the White House begs to differ.

Nevertheless, the incident got the Buds thinking. Since we’re wannabe-rich and on-the-cusp-of-famous, what parties would we like to crash?

No. 1: The Jackson Family Christmas Party - if in fact, these Jehovah Witness church members celebrate the birth of Christ

Can’t you just picture it? The entire clan gathered around the fireplace, pausing to remember their late brother, wearing glittery gloves and handing out presents ...

Oh wow! The new cheek implants I wanted!

Who wants to trade me a new nose for a non-malfunctioning Super Bowl halftime outfit?

Oh, it’s a whitening kit! I already have this! Will someone trade me for a Playboy photo shoot?

No. 2: Oprah’s retirement party

Who wouldn’t want to be there when the Big O closes up shop?

No more book clubs! No more big giveaways!

Looks like the masses will have to start thinking on their own!

We’ll bring the champagne!

No. 3: Kate Gosselin’s divorce party.

We’re are big fans of the institution of marriage. We’re all for it but we’re also for parents being parents and getting out of a bad marriage (and perhaps television contracts) when the well-being of children (in this case, eight of ’em) is at stake.

Despite mistakes on both sides, we would love to be at the divorce party. We’d get to play in those little crooked houses the kids have in the backyard and eat organic treats made by Kate herself!

No. 4: Jaoquin Phoenix’s intervention

Dude, you’re not a rapper!

Who wants cake?

At the same time there are things we wouldn’t be crashing like the next Beer Summit at the White House (We hear you need an engraved invitation for that, right Salahis?) and, oh yeah, Tiger Woods’ SUV!


Here’s a recipe for Copper Kettle Fudge from Jean Baker of Adena. It’s the perfect something to whip up and take to the next party you’re invited to attend!

4 1/2 cups sugar

1 stick butter

1 teaspoon salt

1 - 14 oz. can evaporated milk

4 cups nuts (chopped)

1 package. chocolate chips

4 German chocolate bars

1 1/2 pint marshmallow cream

1 large Hershey bar

2 teaspoons vanilla

Butter two large pans. Chop all the chocolate.

Boil for 8-10 minutes: sugar, salt, butter and milk. Do not start timing until it comes to a gentle boil. Boil gently. Remove from heat. Add all remaining ingredients. Mix rapidly with large spoon until all chocolate is melted. Pour into pans. Cool for several hours.
