Zombies are everywhere these days. From movies, TV and novels, they just won’t die. But hey, I’m not complaining. In honor of AMC’s post-apocalyptic zombie show “Walking Dead” premiering its mid-season episode tonight, here are some tips on how the living can eat the dead. No brains involved (kinda):
1. Offer Drinks
You’re throwing a party for Christ’s sakes. You obviously have to offer your guests some boozy brains. These zombie shots are made of strawberry vodka, lime juice, grenadine and Bailey’s Irish Cream. The “brain” is actually the curdled cream from the acid.
2. BYOB? Forget the Solo Cup
This is just one of many zombie cups available. Pour your drink into one of these babies and you’ll be set.
Here’s another option:

3. Serve Tasty Hor D’ourves
Deep-fried brains — yum! Am I right?
4. For Your Main Course
Sorry vegans, this isn’t your kind of party. Any sort of meaty entreé will work just fine for the main course. Burgers are a great option because, in theory, you could have several kinds of meat mixed into one delicious, bloody meal.

5. Don’t Forget about Party Games
When you choose to play party games is your call, but you have to give your guests something to do. This Last Night on Earth board game gives you a look into if you were in a zombie apocalypse.
($49.99 via Amazon)
Or you can just play Call of Duty on zombie mode, I guesssss…
