Our engagement party was this weekend, and it was fantastic. My future mother and father in-law hosted, and they nailed it. The party began mid-afternoon, and we spent the day eating Andy Nelson's BBQ, playing corn hole and bocce and sipping Prosecco in the glorious 75-and-sunny weather.  I think sometimes engagement parties can be a little stuffy. Standing in a swanky bar eating crostini and chatting about place settings would not be nearly as fun (to me) as wiping BBQ off my face while watching my 85,000 younger siblings lose their  minds  when the rented ice cream truck pulled up. (Because my genius MIL rented an ice cream truck.

Best-selling author Susie Fishbein continues her crusade to modernize kosher cooking with easy and elegant recipes in her latest book, Kosher by Design Entertains (Mesorah Publications, 2005, $34.99). This follow-up to her successful Kosher by Design includes more than 250 new recipes and 200 color photographs. But as its title reveals, a good bit of the book is devoted not just to how to cook but how to entertain. The book is organized by different kinds of parties and by meal courses.

Everyone has an opinion on engagement parties and what is appropriate or not appropriate. Not every engaged couple has an engagement party, but if you do want to have one, it's important to think through the details. It should be far enough away from the wedding so that people don't worry about spending a ton of money on separate gifts for the same people. If the engagement party is just a month or two before the wedding, the couple may come off as greedy, since they will be asking guests to spend money on the engagement present, a shower present, and a wedding present in a short amount of time.

"Revenge"returned this week to give us a bit of closure after the engagement party - only to leave us hanging a full month until its return! Many questions around what actually happened at the engagement party were answered, but the episode ultimately only left us with more questions. I had wondered how the writers would manage to keep everyone in the Hamptons after Labor Day, and apparently an ongoing murder investigation will keep everyone right where they belong. Unfortunately for Daniel, that is in a maximum security prison, but at least he will escape from the chaos that is sure to unfold at home.

I've been a bit annoyed with"Revenge"lately; to take a holiday break, come back for three weeks, and then take a two-week hiatus? This just seemed rude to be taking advantage of those of us who plan our weeks around Wednesdays at 10 p.m. However, once the episode opened and I watched as different cast members received a red box, I knew it could mean only one thing: The engagement party is approaching! Since the first 10 minutes of the series teased this party, we've all been left wondering, and it seems as though some of our questions are closer to being answered!

Annapolis Opera began its 38th season by hiring its first general manager, Jennifer Fletcher, who at 37 is nearly the same age as the company itself. Since Fletcher's arrival in September, the first full-time Annapolis Opera employee has been involved in helping the company grow. "We're excited with the new ideas [Fletcher's] bringing and look forward to the possibility of having two major productions instead of a single one in time for our 40th anniversary season — a goal that will depend on Jennifer's success at fundraising," said President Leah Solat.

When Elena Russo was featured in Baltimore Magazine's 1997 singles issue, the editors wondered in print on the cover whether bachelors would fall for her. Anyone who saw the cover knew the answer. Elena is beautiful. She's a professional model as well as a free-lance stage manager who works for ESPN Sports and other television networks. (She recently finished a stint as a regional producer for the now-defunct Xtreme Football League.) On the magazine cover, she wore a sexy black dress and high-heeled black pumps.

Q: I have received an invitation to an engagement party at one of Manhattan's most exclusive hotels. The dress required is "festive." I don't know what that means. I'd appreciate it if you would make a suggestion for both my wife and myself.A: I can't think of anyone better suited to answering your question than Randy Kemper, one of the bright lights in New York fashion.Mr. Kemper says, " 'Festive' implies either dressy or witty and fun, depending on the occasion and location. Since the party is at an elegant hotel, it's sure to mean dressy.

Janiece Daniel and Brian Timmons met on the subway. That may not sound unusual, but it happened to be the first time either one had taken the subway in years. And though they sat near each other on the train, Janiece, 32, and Brian, 29, exchanged only a brief greeting and no further conversation. Fortunately, one of Janiece's co-workers, Jnel Momanyi, was there to make sure the romance got on track. (The couple, who are very religious, also believe a higher power had something to do with it.)
