Wrestlemania 26 is this Sunday at 7. I have to be honest and say I am really excited about this extravaganza. I watched it last year with my friends and it was good quality fun. (And, yes, I still live at home with my parents. I’m ok with it.) I thought I would share some tips to make your Wrestlemania party a success.
Venue: I’m pretty sure you'll want to watch this in the comforts of you home. Sure it’s a Pay Per View but have your buds kick in a few bucks and it’s not a big deal. A local establishment might be showing the event. But then you have to deal with finding a seat and waiting for drinks. It’s also louder and not as conducive to going wild.
Entertainment: I plan on telling my guests to arrive early. I have the Bret Hart DVD and the Rock DVD which will be played. I want to get everyone in the mood prior to the main event. You don’t change the channel during Wrestlemania so let your guests know the score the moment they show up. Luckily for me, Bret Hart is wrestling this year so we’ll be able to see old Bret versus young Bret. And of course there is Wrestlemania, which will not disappoint. The card is so loaded that this could go down as a legendary.
Food: Keep in mind the entire party is predicated on sitting in front of the TV and cheering (loudly) for a fixed match, so you want your delicious finger food. That being said this is the one area of the party you have a large say in, so have fun. Give names to your food and take it up a notch.
- Five Knuckle Shuffle Dip - Just your basic delicious dip but it's a guaranteed knockout.
- The 619's - A classic display of quesadillas but with a subtle kick you're just not expecting.
- Santino's Specialty - Pizza and pasta. Two classics and perfect if you're having guests come over early and want to give them some energy for the matches.
- The Big Shows - Nothing beats pigs in a blanket so give them a name that matches the hype.
This is just to get you started on your way to the championship, just remember to have fun with the naming of the food. The more fun you have with it the more fun your guest will have. So let's get ready to party!
