'The O.C.' is ending! How should I stuff my face?

Julie_lPopWatch reader Caroline wrote in last week about wanting to co-host an O.C. Finale Party, and wondered: "Do you have suggestions of what we should serve? Maybe a little Pad Thai? Some Chardonnay? What would be uniquely O.C. that could end the series right?" A superb question, and right up my alley. We exchanged a few e-mails, and together came up with this list:

• Pancakes (for Summer)
• Gold Medal Ribbon ice cream from Baskin Robbins (Kaitlin’s fave)
• Bagels (with slicer)
• Shrimp Tacos (Sandy’s pick from El Pavo Guapo)
• Corn Dogs (Frank, ew.)
• Whatever that ice cream bar was that Marissa and Ryan got on the boardwalk in season 1 (Caroline knew it: Balboa Bars! Are those real?)
• Hot Pockets (Julie, pictured, in the trailer)
• Cheese Stix and Ding Dongs
• "Fresh Margs?" (Kirsten)
• One of Lindsay’s disgusting Zone meals
• Tequila shots (for sorrow-drowning)

Post your own ideas below, then leave work early to start shopping.

    wasnt vodka kirsten’s drink of choice when she was on her drinking binge?

  • Caroline

    Thanks for all your help with this project. We will now have the grossest mix of food for tonight’s finale. And, we must of course add the generic vodka Kirsten used to swill from the bottle. And peanut butter pie, which was the real reason Anna moved back to Pittsburgh.
    Thanks again!

    Didn’t Kirsten & Sandy ALWAYS order out Chinese take out during the first few episodes? I mean I am an O.C. fan, but don’t pull out the dvds often, but didn’t they always used to make references about Moo Shu Pork? Like “A lil’ Moo Shu will fix this…”? I’m gonna really miss the O.C….Does anyone know, is it off Fox’s schedule after tonight? No re-runs from this (super short) season? Does the Season have a dvd release date??

  • Matt

    Two kinds of meatloaf.

  • Amanda

    Don’t forget mojitos with crudite and dip for Oliver, even though his story was the worst plot ever.

  • kyle

    what about a bottle of prescription pills in memory of oliver?
    other bands that played at the bait shop: Modest Mouse and the Subways

  • kyle

    and im sorry but i guess im in the minority of people that didnt think oliver was the worst character ever. Oliver is the basis for my favorite O.C. episode when they go to down to palm springs and ryan and oliver almost get in a head on collison with the holf carts.

  • Matt’s Biggest Fan

    Wicked props for “Two Kinds of Meatloaf”…
    What a reference.

  • Jenn

    aww, bye bye OC! Just so you know Balboa Bars are real! and i think you should throw in a little PF Changs in honor of Summers commantary on the Chino controversy in season 1.

  • Mozz

    i’m planning on having myself a serving of Ugly Betty and a side-dish of Grey’s Anatomy.

  • Alicia

    Ha! “Chino? They don’t even have a PF Changs.”

  • Phil

    *sniff sniff* Its gone, at least they DID pack up the world famous Cohen bagel slicer for the moving boxes in the last 10 minutes!!!
    And did we discuss this before but was Summer’s job at G.E.O.R.G.E. another subliminal jab at Grey’s Anatomy? Sorry for all the questions today, but… its.. like SO gone forever! And only a half a second flashback sun-tinged shot of Marissa!
