Remember the time we got into that fight at the biker bar and you got beat up by that grandmother with the tattoos? No? Hmm. Remember that time we got arrested for posing as obstetricians at that hospital? No? Well, that baby was gonna be ugly anyway. Hey, remember that time you got hit by a car and ended up with retrograde amnesia? No? Oh yeah, that just happened. Well, someday you'll probably look back at this and laugh. We are Monday nights on ABC. So grab your address book and call the people claiming to be your friends we're throwing a "Samantha Who?" party that will be worth remembering.
Setting the scene:You've got two options with this one: Either set up two rooms in entirely different themes (such as an after-church social and a Vegas free-for-all) or be prepared to redecorate one room midparty into an entirely different theme. For the latter, you'll need a 20-minute distraction outside and some people in on the joke. The trick is to keep everyone on their toes. Another option is to send invitations with a name tag of another guest included. Yep, you guessed it you're now that person during the party. With any luck, you have no idea who that person is, so, like Samantha, your task is to "discover" who you are. Anyone who can figure out who the real person is on his tag gets a prize. Party favors include forget-me-nots, memory foam pillows and "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Reinventing Yourself."
Attire:The only thing we know for sure is that everyone better be wearing a name tag.
