Can I Insult the Food at This Dinner Party? A Flowchart.

The Best Dressed Less Stressed Guest

The Dinner Party

  • Brought to you by Dewar's®

Rule no. 1 of the fancy dinner party: do unto the hosts as the hosts do unto you. As in: follow their lead. If their elbows are on the table, so too can yours be. Once they take a bite, you can take a bite. When they switch to wine, put your flask away. And while you should definitely give a thoughtful, short and sweet toast at some point, don’t be the guy who gives the first toast.

DRESS THE PART

Alright here’s the deal: we’re gonna ask you to trust us here. Take a deep, confident breath, and throw on … a turtleneck. Yes, it’s a bold call. But executed correctly, just the kind of bold call that will earn you nods of approval from your fellow dinner guests. Just keep it slim, solid and of moderate neck height; mock turleneck wearers will be shot on sight. Do it under a dapper suit for maximum impact upon arrival, then ditch the jacket for a more casual, smartest-guy-at-the-table feel during dinner. People will notice you. People will remember you. These are good things.

GIFT LIKE A PRO

Dewar’s + Denver & Liely Whisky Glasses

Good gift because: your hosts will remember you every time they enjoy a dram. Pairs well with the Scotch because: new glasses are the perfect excuse to crack open that bottle.
