Neoslacker Interactive Thanksgiving

Neoslacker Interactive Thanksgiving

Man, Thanksgiving is good. But it’s so much work. What if the host were able to relax? It would revolutionize the holiday. We provide the menu, you provide the dining room and kitchen, and your friends provide the food and wine. Just click the envelope icon next to each recipe to get an email form—all you have to do is fill in the email address, date, and time. Your friend gets a link to the recipe or a mail-order option if he or she doesn’t want to cook. Assign out each dish (even the dishware, tablecloth, and glasses, if you’re a superslacker), and let Thanksgiving come to you.
