Here’s a thought.  Entertaining isn’t just something that happens when the ladies decide to break out the good china. Any gentleman who enjoys the company of friends, a delicious meal, or a great drink should know how to host a gathering. So shove those frozen burritos out of the way and make some room in the freezer for your stainless steel ice bucket. It’s time to entertain.

John Bridges and Bryan Curtis have mapped out everything you need to know for any occasion, from dinner parties to tailgate potlucks. Whether you’re hosting clients for a business lunch at an upscale restaurant or corralling your rowdy friends for a weekend cookout, these are the fundamentals you’ll need to ensure you and your guests have a memorable time.  The details have been wrangled out already—all that’s left is for you to sit back and enjoy the company of your favorite people.
