Eric McDaniel and Dr. Chad Rodgers once again hosted their annual Between Party -- as in "between" Christmas and New Year's -- to save friends, family and acquaintances from a celebration "dead zone." The traditional pizza, along with wine, beer and a bevy of other tasty morsels, awaited attendees at the couple's Hillcrest home on a wet Dec. 28.

"Traditionally, this is an event that goes on for hours," according to the party's Facebook event page. "A suggested guide to this event includes the conversational 6-8 p.m. crowd -- 'I love a good party and want to be able to hear and not be crammed in with a hundred people' -- the transitional 8-10 p.m. crowd -- 'I love a good party but don't want to stay out all night' -- and the 10 p.m. crowd -- 'I am stayin' alive and up all night.'"

As always, the event attracted a large, motley crew. As election time is coming soon, a candidate or two can be found among the guests even at holiday house parties such as this one.

The late stayers were able to enjoy that other fine "Between" tradition: taking turns dancing on the low, round coffee table that, if it could talk, would have plenty to tell.

After the party, the men drew comments and laughs with a photo, posted on the Facebook page, of a collection of "lost and found" items left behind by partiers ... from reading glasses to an oven mitt.
