To celebrate the release of Seinfeld Seasons 1 - 3 on DVD, my best friend and I are hosting a big Seinfeld party the weekend after the release.

Assuming that some of you might be doing the same thing, I thought we might share ideas for the party.

So here's basically what I'm thinking so far:
-Seinfeld themed food (junior mints, bobka, Drake's coffee cake, marble rye, bosco w/ icecream, chips for --not--double dipping, juji fruit candy)
-We'd watch the Pilot episode, the Clip Shows, and maybe a couple other favorite episodes
-We'll have Seinfeld posters for people to sign with their favorite quotes
-All around the place, we'll have printed out classic Seinfeld quotes and posted them
-We'll have a list of all the best Seinfeld side-characters (Bob Sacamano, FDR, Brody, Babu, Sid Farcus, Milosh etc.)
-We'll have a Seinfeld trivia contest

I've also designed some Seinfeld Invitations for the party. I've posted them here:

So, any else planning on having a party? Got any ideas?

I am also planning a party too with my best friend. We are going to have calzones, cafe lattes, and dinky donuts as well.

We are also going to try to make our own clip show, showing the esscence of each character. We have Kramer (The bookstore intro) and Elaine (when she can't break up with putty) but we are lacking in George and Jerry, so what do you think is a good scene that "captures the esscence" of George or Jerry?

We're doing something similar, but having everyone come as a character.... but not one of the four main characters. So everyone else is fair game: Peterman, Putty, Soup Nazi, "The Voice", etc...

For George, you can have a clip of when he does the opposite and gets the girl. That whole scene in Monk's was great.

For Jerry, the little speech he does when George is down then up and Elaine is up then down. He talks about how he always comes out even. That was a good summation of him.

Great ideas!
I didn't think of having people come dressed as characters. The only problem there is that I don't have enough die-hard seinfeld friends (who would be willing to dress up).

I'm making shirts that say "I'm with Bob Sacamano" for my guests, though, so that everyone will have some piece of Seinfeld-themed clothing.

Tor--I think the opposite scene is perfect for George --haha, that whole episode ("The Opposite") was the essence of George, why we love him so much.

if you want the true essence of george, i don't think it gets any better than this exchange:

George: So, did you enjoy your lunch?

Elaine: Yeah. The Big Salad. It was very good. Actually it was too big. (laughs.) Why?

George: Oh, no. 'Cause you know, she handed you the bag. I could have handed you the bag. But she happened to pick it up at the restaurant, even though...

Elaine: Even though what?

George: Nah, it's just... you thanked her, even though... (laughs)... what's the difference?

Elaine: What? What are you trying to say, George?

George: Well, it's just that I was the one that actually paid for the Big Salad. She just happened to hand it to you. But it's no big deal.

Elaine: You want the money for the Big Salad, George?

George: No, no.

Elaine: Then what is your problem?

George: There is no problem.

(silence for a couple moments.)

George: Just a small miscommunication, whereby you thanked her instead of the person actually responsible for the purchasing of the Big Salad.

----

that scene is george in a nutshell.

I was also thinking of the scene where Jerry compares his two friends (one is up and the other is down),
but i think that it might be a little short for what i am looking for.

With george i am looking for the essence of george,
not the opposite of the essence of george (the opposite scene was originally on the top of my list)
I was thinking of No. 120 The Gum where George tries to convince that girl that he is not insane, "and it all comes back to Lloyd Braun"

To me, the essense of George was when they all happened upon the scene of the burning cabin and he turned to Susan and said "You know, you forgot to give me the change for the toll."

Or, perhaps when he was pestering the woman about the name Seven when she was in labor and they were headed to the hospital...

FDR, what music are you going to have at your party?

hmm...I've been thinking about that. I still want it all Seinfeld themed, whether it's good or bad music. So far I've remembered these songs from Seinfeld:
-Desperado
-Wichy Woman
-the Superman Theme
-Green Day - Time of your life

And the Seinfeld theme, of course
Any other ideas? Music is an important part of any party...

Oh, maybe also "Master of the House" from Le Miserable --which George kept singing in one episode.

Also:
"Morning Train"-Sheena Easton (Has been used on the show twice).
"Slow Ride"-Foghat
"Innagoddadavida"-Iron Butterfly
"Flight of the Bumblebee"
"Don't Stop til you get Enough"-Michael Jackson
"Getting Jiggy with it"-Will Smith (Not really used, but when Jerry says he DJ'd at Joe Mayo's last party, he said he Got Jiggy With it)
I'll think of more.

Gendison, you're the best. Are you having a party, too, or just showing the rest of us up with your superior knowledge of Seinfeld Wink

I just thougth of this one -- on the same obscure line as "getting jiggy with it," I was thinking maybe one MC Hammer song, because in "the baby shower" Kramer references the 90's as being "hammer time," and later sings "Jerry's gonna be a cable boy, a cable boy..." to what I think is a Hammer tune.

Oh -- and how could I forget "Earth Wind and Fire - Shining Star" -- the song to which Elaine "dances" with her little kicks

FDR, good one. How can we forget "Shining Star"...I'm not having a party, and not showing off, because there are quite a few people here that blow me away with their trivia knowledge. I happen to be a musician, so I guess remembering tunes would be up my alley.

-Pez
-Clark Bars
-Yoohoos

I just watched the 100th episode clip show today, and I saw a lot of food mentioned at one point in the episode (some you allready have, but there has to be something that you are missing).

A song that Kramer sings one line from is "Mexican Radio" in the Reverse Peephole.

if you're a fan of soup, look to everyone's favourite nazi for some good ideas. muligatawny, lima bean, crab bisque, turkey chili, jambalaya (sp?), and wild mushroom, to name a few.

You could also serve some mysteries wrapped in a Twinkie.
