Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy party food

Hello everyone,

I would like to collect some ideas for a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy themed party.

I would appreciate any food ideas, but those for drinks and decorations are also welcome!

Thanks very much!

  1. Steak? Preferably steak that talks.

    Pan Galactic Gargle-blasters, of course, and Gin-n-Tonics, and tea.

    1. first-- everybody has to have a towel......

      then have everybody drink six pints...
      and have some peanuts (for the salt)

      then have really bad poetry readings.....

      and a proper british tea...

      steak...if u can find an Ameglian Major Cow ...

        and some fuzzy things from the back of the fridge.

          LOL, agree on the towel. Get a bunch of inexpensive handtowels or fingertip towels and use as napkins.

        2. Chicken with 42 cloves of garlic? Cupcakes with crushed up Oreos on top (like dirt), add frosting petunias, with little whales stuck in them?

          1. Babel fish goldfish crackers or maybe a fish dish?

            I would do the cake as the bowl of petunias - chocolate cake, chocolate frosting, stick some petunias in the top.

            There is never any tea! Just drinks that are almost but not quite like tea ;)

            There's the drink in And Another Thing, something like whiskey and an egg - can read up on that one.

            Steaks, definitely.

            I'll try to think of more.

            1. re: haiku.

              except after he explained to the replicator on the heart of gold...and it took the whole ships computer to finally make a proper cup of tea......

            2. An appetizer involving smoked salmon.
