Years later, we’re still upset that the Japanese fad of Potato Parties never made its way to North America. NEVERTHELESS, the FORA team is up to anything that includes a) fried food and b) large quantities of fried food. We had a potato party, documented the event, and prepared a step-by-step guide on how to have the best Fry-Day ever.
HOW TO HAVE A FRY PARTY
GATHER FRIENDS. The kind that won’t judge you for wanting to enter a fry-induced food coma. And don’t invite anyone who will feel any kind of embarrassment when the fast food attendant yells out your order of “SEVEN LARGE FRIES, THE LADY WHO ORDERED SEVEN LARGE FRIES, YOU’RE ORDER IS READY” in front of the entire restaurant.
BUY FRIES. A simple formula for how many orders of (large) fries to buy: Number of attendees X How bad of a week you’ve had on a scale from 1-5 (1 being cat heart eyes emoji, 5 being cat screaming emoji)
DON’T FORGET CONDIMENTS. Whatever your heart desires: Ketchup, vinegar, mayonnaise, a mixture of all three. No one’s judging you here.
STAY HYDRATED. This is going to be a high-sodium event. So have water ready.
TAKE SELFIES. AND SNAPCHATS. Make all your friends jealous. The ancient Internet proverb “PICS OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN” is still applicable.
MAKE IT CUTE. ‘Cause you’ll be feelin’ anything BUT. We used doilies and pretended it was a dainty, elegant tea party. Then we saw the grease stains and remembered it was actually the opposite.
Now it’s your turn! Gather up your non-judgemental, non-celiac friends and FRY ‘TILL YOU DIE (which actually might not take that long, so be cautious)
