Show of Shows

Andrea was over last night for a game night.  So, of course, we had to ask her...
Who's Coming for Dinner?

Does that work?  I was trying to sound all gameshowy.

It didn't take her long to come up with her first guest:
1)  Betty White!  The Empress of the Internet dominates WCFD in only our second post!  Is there no stopping her?  TV actress and onetime queen of the celebrity guest game show.  Quick witted and entertaining.

2) So who can meet Betty's high standards?  Maybe Bonnie Hunt.  Funny, can talk to anyone.  Had a great interview of Betty White recently.  Plus she might be free since her show was cancelled.  Put this together, I found out she interviewed my favorite speaker, Ken Robinson.  And she'd read his book.

3)  Carrie Fisher.  She was suggested as someone who can bridge generations.  Mother Debbie Reynolds and father Eddie Fisher are classic Hollywood, and Star Wars makes sure that Carrie's well known now.   Plus, she's really funny - her new show, from her own writing, is called Wishful Drinking.

4)  Are any men to join this crew?  Yes!  Danny Kaye is invited.  Charming, funny, talented, philanthropic... perfect man to bring.  Nobody sings like him.  Plus it looks like he has an appreciation for fine food.

5)  Finally, Bill Cosby.  Hilarious, TV giant, performer, jazz aficianado... great fit.  Even game show experience.  But we'd better go somewhere with a good chocolate cake.

So where do you take a crew like this?  Andrea wanted someplace bluesy, so House of the Blues, Chicago, it is. Looks like some good Nawlins cookery.

Who would you invite to this dinner?  Tell us in the comments!  And send me the results of when you played Who's Coming for Dinner with your family or friends!
