Graduation Open House: What's For Dinner?

If you're hosting a graduation party, what are you having? Or if you've been to one, what'd they have?

Both Mary and I have sons graduating from high school, and we held a party yesterday afternoon. We kept it simple, having what the boys wanted: 8 lbs fresh ground beef with 1 gal. + 1 qt. Manwich on hamburger buns, sweet & sour meatballs, American potato salad, macaroni salad, broccoli/cauliflower salad, a huge bowl of Bugles, and 20 2 liters of pop. Except for the broccoli/cauliflower salad (which my sister made), everything was from a restaurant supply shop (GFS Marketplace for those who have one nearby), The full sheet cake, white on one end, chocolate on the other, with whipped icing, was a custom cake from Kroger.
