For many many years, we lived in Winston-Salem, NC which back then, had no liquor by the drink. So dining in fine restaurants was sans cocktail. They would gather people at our house for a pre-dinner boozing and then traipse over to the restaurant.
The minute they left we landed on the leftovers. Most everyone finished their drinks and what was left of those was mainly melted ice but there was always a nice array of exotic munchies for us to help 'clean up.'
As I sit here finishing my after breakfast coffee, I'm looking over at my neighbors' wondering how delicious their party leftovers are. I'm guessing scrumptious.
