Default Beer Tasting Event-IDEAS NEEDED

BeerFriends,
This weekend is the 3rd annual Vermilion Beer tasting on the back deck on my .3 acre ponderosa. Background- each person selects a country/area to represent and they bring a 6 pack from that country, they also bring a dish to feed 4-6 peeps that is from the nations recipes. I supply gift certificates for best beer/food to local brewpubs and we all get ****faced. I also use this as a blind tasting for my homebrew to see how my friends really like my beer...always surprising. Mostly to the people who say they don't like darker beers(communists-no offense to the marxist out there).

The help I need is that with 40 people minimum coming and diverse mix of friends/co-workers/family coming my wife wants to have an ice-breaker before the tasting gets started. That is where you come in...ideas???

I promise to post from the tasting on the page here next week.
Cheers and thanks in advance for your well thought out ideas,
Verm-
Indianapolis, IN

How about women do some naked mud wrestling while the men partake in some watching of naked mud wrestling?

I was told by SWMBO that I am not even allowed to take any of your suggestions to her for consideration anymore...and she said that you are supposed to go and tell your SWMBO what you are saying online...cause she will disapprove and make you clean up your act. Sorry dude but SMBO.

On a side note...I thought they were funny

You have a tough problem on your hands. I have been thinking about it and I have no idea how to introduce and break the ice with 40 people I would just probably get drunk and make an ass of myself. That way people would laugh and talk to each other about my stupid actions

My SWMBO is an Optimator-loving D-cupped blonde who still hangs out with her first-ever girlfriend....

And she approves this message.
