'Tis the season for dinner parties, which are fun to attend, but sometimes a tad stressful to plan. Local online pub The Bold Italic has a solution: Dinner Party in a Box! For $50 you can get everything you need to throw a dinner party, including a handmade wooden bottle opener, recipe cards from a slew of local chefs including the folks from flour + water and State Bird Provisions, dessert, and an "Emergency Preparedness Hook-Up Kit" for those amorous dinner parties, one presumes. You still need a main course and beverages, but this isn't a bad start!
