GoPlate Lets You Hold a Party in the Palm of Your Hand, Literally

Here’s a familiar summertime scenario: after waiting a hot second in the buffet line, you’ve finally gotten your food and your drink and are ready to get your grub on when you realize there are no empty tables around. You could try to find a ledge somewhere, or maybe sit on the floor, but heavens, you’re not an animal.

Luckily for you, there’s the GoPlate. Probably more “tray” than “plate,” this washable, re-usable plastic contraption rests comfortably atop your drink, leaving you a free hand for munching, dancing or schmoozing. As an added bonus, GoPlate comes in seven different colors including white, “rich red,” blue, black, orange, yellow and clear, making it the perfect accessory for almost any chromatically-themed party—taste the rainbow, indeed.

And all right, so maybe it won’t let you eat and drink at the same time as the promotional images seem to suggest (unless maybe you put a straw in there), but it will make carrying everything from the kitchen to the backyard a heck of a lot easier. Score.

GoPlate comes in packs of 10, 21 or 42 and pricing depends on color and quantity, the cheapest being 10 “clears” for $14.98.

What worked during and following the Vietnam era was to approach a table with patrons but with one or more empty seats and proclaim you recently returned from the ‘Nam and do so with that certain “look” in the eyes.

It is amazing how many folks offer you the seat.

Some out of sympathy, others from respect but it was obvious that many did so out of fear.

I betcha’ the folks returning from our latest overseas interventions could do the same.

To perform the act properly requires either someone who HAS been overseas and seen at least some of the ugliness or lacking that real-life experience be a consummate actor.

The above is realistic. Consider the recent warnings sent to the various states regarding returning troops from overseas who may pose a threat to the ruling elites, etc. It’s true. Search the Web for the sordid details.
