    As simple as it is, I love cheese and crackers during cocktail hour. I don’t like to fill up on anything too heavy, but it is enough to put some food in my tummy while I’m drinking. Also easy to eat while walking around.

    Cheese and crackers gets my vote! Great as they are perfectly simple and safe for vegetarians and meat-eaters.

    I would get my money’s worth but it also depends how long between that and dinner!

    @lifesaride:  Crackers or bread and dip are good! Definitely no meat, as someone who doesn’t each much meat, I would be starving by the time dinner arrived if my only option were ribs.

    I would definitely add a few apps. Unless that’s not the norm, heavy cocktail hour is common here. Love stuffed mushrooms, scallops wrapped in bacon, chicken kabobs.

    @lifesaride:  You should add at least one more minimum, two more would be better.  I’ve never been to a cocktail hour with only one thing, particularly something that so many people can’t eat (vegetarians as well as practicing muslims or jews can not eat ribs).

    This is a very regional thing from my experience.  Around here it’s all about options.  Multistation cocktail hours ( as in many)in addition to appetizers on trays followed by a full dinner are  quite  common and almost “expected” within some crowds.  Cheese and crackers are filling and usually seen when there’s nothing or little else being served.
