There was a time in my life, let’s call it the late nineties, when I always had a deck of cards in my purse. They got a particular amount of play (wha!) on summer evenings, hanging out with friends. Euchre was the game and we all knew how to play.
I like the idea of hosting an old-fashioned card party a la Etheline Tenenbaum or Betty Draper. My ideal scenario would be to string some lights in my fantasy backyard patio (add outdoor space to my , pull out the card table, mix up a pitcher of Pimm’s Cup and play a few rounds with music wafting through the windows. Doesn’t that just sound lovely! Who’s in?
