Whether you’ve faithfully or skeptically watched "Lost” since it began, the finale to air Sunday offers two things: closure and a prime opportunity to throw a watch party.
The great thing about a watch party is that previous viewership is not a prerequisite. Is the Super Bowl the only football game you annually watch? Perhaps you’ve been to an Oscar party without having seen all the Best Picture nominees.
To host your own "Lost” party, all you need is a printer, television and kitchen. You’ll also need a little background.
There are three kinds of foods to consider for your "Lost” watch party: Dharma foods, character favorites and island dishes.
Early in Season 2 of the show, viewers learned about the Dharma Initiative, involving a group of scientists, hippies and profiteers interested in meteorology, psychology, parapsychology, zoology, electromagnetism and utopianism, who left behind mysterious caves, camps, cages, laboratories and videos that offered clues to the island’s history. Besides local fruits, vegetables and fish, the Dharma folks subsisted on generic foods in cans, boxes or bottles. To turn your pantry into a Dharma pantry, you need look no further than the World Wide Web.
From peanut butter to merlot and all forms of boxed, canned or bottled goods in between, items can be found on the Internet. Go to blog.newsok. com/fooddude for links.
Simply open the files, print them out and attach the labels to the goods you’d like to convert.
