Robinglomalicious n - any form of rotating gathering in which each location provides a different or distinct delectable dish for devouring, usually the company is as delicious if not more so than the edible delicacies [lat. robin "rotation," lat. glom "round," lat. delicia "delight"]

Entertaining is such a great concept... not only does it force you to do some cleaning, (cleaning that, chances are, you've been meaning to do for a couple of weeks now) but it gives you a deadline and rewards you in more ways than one. You accomplish that cleaning and you are able to spend time with friends. Our society has become so high paced--we are all so busy that it seems we can live a few blocks away from friends and still never see them--so it's good to entertain every so often just to stay in touch! People are always in a good mood, complementing the dish you prepared, applauding your taste in decorating, cooking or what have you, laughing and generally enjoying the company of one another.

I hosted appetizers and drinks (layered mexican dip and strawberry/peach daiquiris), then we moved a couple of blocks for Hawaiian kabobs, then another couple blocks for angel food cake with fresh berries and chocolate martinis. Covered lots of important topics, and played a game with dessert (Balderdash-which I found I'm quite good at... I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that the basis of the game is essentially one's ability to effectively merda bubula another) Good time had by all-Mission Accomplished!
