Inviting friends in for drinks and hors d'oeuvres can be one of the most relaxed ways to entertain -- but not when the menu holds the host hostage in the kitchen. That won't happen if you plan simple-to-make-and-serve dishes you prepare entirely or partially ahead.If you're not serving guests dinner afterward, plan to have the hors d'oeuvres hearty and plentiful enough to cushion the effects of any alcohol you pour, and offer soft drinks or mineral water as well. Present an appealing variety of dishes, counting on four to six hors d'oeuvres per guest.

Instead of inviting friends for dinner, I sometimes ask them to come for wine and simple appetizers. For me, this is one of the easiest ways to entertain, especially when I'm busy. I prepare one or two nibbles, open a bottle of wine, set out glasses and napkins, and that's it. Several weeks ago, after learning that a dear friend from the Midwest was coming to visit her daughter who was expecting twins (and who happens to live only a few miles from us), I had planned such a get-together.

It could happen. Onion dip, cheese balls and baked brie might just go the way of the dodo bird. It could happen, that is, once cooks take a look at the newly published "Hors d'oeuvres" cookbook (OK Publishing Inc., New York, 168 pages, $19.95) by chef Eric Treuille and caterer Victoria Blashford-Snell, both of London. A second glance should send cooks scurrying for the cumin and coriander, shrimp and chicken wings, skewers, phyllo and tortillas -- whatever's on hand to begin the magic. The only remaining problem: Which recipe to go for first?

When serving wine to guests, whether with snacks and hors d'oeuvres or with a meal, what is the appropriate amount to serve? (Assuming, of course, that there is a designated driver who won't drink at all.) At a sit-down meal, the rule of thumb is a half bottle of wine per person, or one bottle for every couple. If it's a long meal covering several courses and several different types of wine, you may be able to reduce that to one bottle for every four people. For parties with hors d'oeuvres, the same rule holds.

Ahhh. Jan. 1, 2006. Sure feels great to kick back and relax, without another holiday function in sight, doesn't it? But give yourself a few days. Next thing you know, the walls are closing in on you, and it feels like winter will never end! You find yourself getting nostalgic for those holiday parties. Spring - and all the shindigs it brings - seems so far away. Not to worry. There's a heap of events around Baltimore in the next couple of months. Plenty of things to do, people to see, and causes to help - to help you warm both body and soul.

It's official - freezing is in fashion. Last month in Paris, the Four Seasons Hotel George V opened a luxury ice bar, bringing a Gallic twist to a Nordic novelty. The bar was built entirely of ice in a refrigerated cube in the hotel's courtyard. Guests were given a black rabbit-fur Kaufman Franco poncho for their 30-minute session inside the boudoir-style interior, which is kept at a frosty 18 degrees. While the hors d'oeuvres won't cure frostbite (ice bars and sorbet), the flavored vodkas (ginger, cinnamon and vanilla among others)

When you walk into the main building of the Maryland Institute College of Art and the first person you see is dressed as the MilaMilla Jovovich character in 1998's The Fifth Element - scantily clad in strategically placed bandages, you know you're in for a unique evening. But what else would you expect at a party given by MICA students? It's a night when art students use themselves as their canvases. Wings were big. You had the occasional bumblebee and woodland fairy float by. But the largest wings - with a height and span of at least 6 feet - were those elaborately constructed of bamboo and chartreuse nylon and attached to "luna moth" Monnica Hansen.

The weather had nothing to do with a certain tropical air around the American Visionary Art Museum. Perhaps it was the steel drum band playing in one corner of the Joy America Cafe, or the exotic hors d'oeuvres -- like smoked salmon marinated in tequila on blue corn tortillas -- being served. There were no limbo poles in sight, but you could find chicken sate on a stick as members of the Young Lawyers Division of the Equal Justice Council of the Legal Aid Bureau welcomed law firm summer associates to town at their Caribbean Cocktail Party.

In George Orwell's 1984, protagonist Winston Smith was forced to confront his worst fear in the dreaded Room 101. For crimes against Big Brother, Orwell's anti-hero was surrounded by his nightmare: rats. This, of course, was not his choice. He was not motivated by a cash prize. And a smirking host was nowhere to be seen. In 2002, all those awful accouterments have helped this once haunting literary device degenerate into the most moronic of mainstream television. Contestants on shows like Fear Factor volunteer to be trapped in a large container full of rats in order to win cash prizes.
