HELP: how to make popcorn on the stovetop

my grandchildren ( I am 54) were raised on stove top popcorn and it is the most requested food when they visit-which is often because no one else makes it that they know.:)
thin pot, little oil, popcorn-instant adoration. life is good.

AD HOC-please advise

thanks, fellow hounds-much appreciated!

AD HOC-please advise

thanks, think I'll change napa valley grill-sounds touristy. need something the older folk can wear a jacket to and have the Napa dinner experience, any suggestions in Yountville (some place that will take resos for 8)?

AD HOC-please advise

8 adults from Florida, got resos for Napa Valley Grill Friday night April 13 and AD HOC Saturday night-any opinions, suggestions? Is AD HOC really casual? Should I consider another Yountville restaurant?
