When I turned 42, since I was going to be the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything for a WHOLE year, I decided to throw a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy shindig. I had to do this because I share a birthday with the author Douglas Adams. I gave everyone who attended a towel. I encouraged all attendees to wear bathrobes or to grow second heads. We had a Vogon poetry slam at the very end.
But if you’re wondering what snacks to serve at your Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy-themed party, here’s your answer:
What kind of snacks would you serve at YOUR Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy party?

There must be a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster recipe somewhere on the interwebs
I used the non-alcoholic version. You know that electric green punch that is sold in jugs in most grocery stores and it’s so sweet that it almost makes your head explode? Yeah. That’s what I served.
Of course there are Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster recipes – but you might not be standing after drinking them
Gin & Tonics, with lemon of course. Or an alien who thinks they are a lemon.
And crab, bonus points if you bedazzle the shells before serving.
I would also decorate with whales and potted petunias, and pictures of fjords….
I need to stop, I think I’m getting too excited.
I assume everyone drank tea, or something almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea?
I made a Marvin cake for my husband to celebrate Towel day this year.
I bet he didn’t enjoy it at all. 🙂
OMG! This is brilliant! I’m going to be 42 in December and I was thinking about having a Hitchhiker’s theme party. I love this. My boyfriend is going to be 42 this month. Guess what I got him. A Star Trek TOWEL. haha
I must throw this party!
But still 11 years till I’m 42….. will need to think of an excuse…. next towel day, maybe?
I’ve planning my birthday party for a couple months now… I’ll have perfect normal beast sandwiches, pan galactic gargle blaster (alcoholic version), beer and peanuts (so guests can avoid the effects of space travel), some ceviche (thanks for all the fish!).
I’m looking now for some other ideas…
