    3. Give The Hostess A Reason To Call Her Guests The Night Before; Ie. Have Them Bring Their Most Disgusting Scraper And Have A Contest.

    4. Plan On Sunday Evening Phone Calls - Everyone Seems To Be Home From Weekends Away, Getting Relaxed And Ready For Their Workweek. Seems To Be The Best Time To Catch Hosts, Etc.
