Not Green Beer

It’s no secret. The Table Set loves beer. Often replacing wine paired with a meal, mixed in a cocktail (Campari & IPA, anyone?), or baked into a cake, beer always has a place at this…

It’s a Hot Mess

Love is in the air. But while the Table Set boys are all slightly curmudgeon-y about the commercial construction of Vday (listen to last year’s Pink Paper Hearts episode), who doesn’t like the idea of staying…

Winter Warmer

Is winter coming or is it going? That depends on where you live. This week the guys try to sort it all out. From warm grogs to hot pots, “what’s hot and what’s not”? Even…

Year of the Smoke

2012. What a year! This week the guys recount the high points from their joint epicurean adventures and look forward into a hopefully equally hedonistic 2013. Of course most recently on the holiday episode, the…

New Pajamas

It’s time to celebrate Christmas. Or at least Christmas Eve Eve. Because in this time of hustle and bustle it can be hard to carve out time on the big day to celebrate with all…

Poker Face

Andy’s got a party idea.  An idea that was birthed from a weird place: from watching the movie Parents! Yes, a weird comedy-horror film from the 80s about cannibalism inspired Andy to throw a retro-chic…

Pee Cans Next Stop!

The Table Set guys are hitting the road! The bus headed north from LA on the 101, en route to the annual food-filled festival that brought the three together in the first place, Foodbuzz Blogger…

Not Talking Turkey

This week is Thanksgiving and the guys are not talking turkey. Or at least they’re trying not to. Because you have to admit, turkey-mania sets in this time of year and sometimes it’s hard to…

Dilled Torsk

This week’s party is all wet as the guys talk seafood. Greg and Andy are longtime seafood lovers. Land-locked as a child of the Sonoran desert, it took a move to Portland, OR for Nathan…

Dark and Stormy Night

Where’s the Party, witches?? Andy was a guest on the Dining With Doug and Karen podcast and cooked them up some krazy things (hint: “Jackalope Tacos” were definitely involved). Check it out! Greg was a…

Eggs In Jail

The Table Set guys have been mighty busy! Greg was just in Alaska learning all about Alaska Seafood, and cooking it up too. His Wild Caught Sockeye Salmon Sliders were a hit – if only…

How Old Are You Now?

The Table Set Gents talk birthdays. Does age really matter? Do surprise parties ever work? And is 40 “over the hill”?!?

The Hangover

  The boys of the Table Set have been BUSY this summer. Soberingly so. Andy and Nathan were just in SF gorging on killer Lamb Poutine, craft beer and wine to the sounds of Die Antwoord…

Party Like It’s 1899

This week the guys at The Table Set want to party like it’s 1899! And that includes strippers. Oh yes it does. Well pole dancers– actually. But it also includes ice cream. The very thing…

fourthajuly

It’s fourthajuly! And lowbrow hot dogs, lawn games, and personal brands of patriotism are the rage. Greg’s going to the desert -as always- to celebrate with a red, white and blue boozy gelee martini glass…

Single Mingle in the City

Wedding bells, parties of two, double dates; Andy’s had enough! Parties of one are fine, but how can a savvy single truly mingle in today’s jaded media-controlled environment? In this very special episode The Table Set…

Shumai On The Fly

I know you know the words to that famous song from South Pacific. It’s all about an unexpected meeting that changes a young man’s life forever. In the case of the Broadway musical the life…

Where’s the Party?

It’s spring everywhere you look here in Southern California and the gentlemen at The Table Set have all sorts of seasonal entertaining planned. It’s the perfect time of year for parties in Palm Springs. It…

Spring Rejuvenation

The gentlemen are back with tips to freshen up your life this spring! And yet they “hopped” right over the biggest holiday of the spring, Easter! They may not have talked about it on the…

Living in a Food World

This week the gentlemen discuss their “Culinary Muses.”  Where do they look to for ideas?!?   Well, they all love Martha Stewart.  Duh.  And Thomas Keller.   Of course they all inspire each other too….

Dinner Party

Andy has an itch to throw an old school multi-course dinner party. So the gentlemen discuss dinner parties (but don’t they every week?!?) to help inspire the menu. Spoiler alert: the dinner was a big…

Green Beer

The Table Set is never one to skimp on a holiday. An excuse to party is reason enough to celebrate! While to many St. Patrick’s Day is a bar holiday, for Nathan it was always…

Sunday Sizzler

It’s a happy day when a friend says “bring octopus” and it can only mean one thing. Potluck. This week the gents have decided to re-address the Potluck Party. Because it should be more about…

Pink Paper Hearts

The Table Set has a crush. So they invited her to record with them! Kristin “The Cuisinerd” is one glitter-obsessed guest not to be messed with. And she sure knows how to bring it for…
