What a great excuse to get the Girls together...Invite them over to learn Texas Hold'em, America's new favorite and easiest style of poker.
#1 Round up all your players...the more the merrier. Gather round a table that will fit all your guests comfortably. Be sure and let your guests know what the "stakes" will be...you can limit bets to whatever 25 cents for example or for the first night just use poker chips and have all the fun without the money.
#2 For the decor, give your space a casino vibe. Use a black and white striped tablecloth and game inspired decorations.
#3 Serve up "winning" cocktails like club sandwiches and Royal Flush Martinis. Use cookie cutters to cut snacks like cookies into hearts, clubs, spades ord diamonds.
#4 Review the rules and be sure to keep a cheat sheet out for guests so they are able to see what hand is higher than another one.
Winner, winner chicken dinner.
