Attendees have described the G2G! parties as “Death Tupperware Parties” or “Fete du Mort” shindigs. The way it works: You host a Good to Go! party at your home or chosen space. Invite your “soul cluster,” or close friends and family. Each guest brings a dish based upon a favorite recipe passed down from a departed loved one. (I love baking my mom or granny’s recipes, as it makes me feel closer to them. If you can’t cook or bake, you can buy/bring a dish that was inspired by a loved one, and of course, recipes from loved ones who are still with us is also perfectly acceptable.) Each person also brings booze! I joke that if we have to talk about the hard stuff, we need to drink the hard stuff! But I have also hosted alcohol-free Good To Go! Parties. Here at G2G!, we respect everyone’s journey. I have a death-themed rock and roll soundtrack for the party, and once we introduce everyone to each other, I pass out the G2G! “Departure File” that can also be used for In Case of Emergency (ICE) situations as well.
It is my honor and privilege to help guide you through your paperwork in a friendly, safe, open environment filled with good humor, love, laughter, fun music and great food.
Imagine the alternative: confronting these issues for the first time in an emergency situation in a hospital, when you least expect it, under traumatic circumstances. If you’ve lost someone close to you, you will know the overwhelming feeling of taking care of every detail. Why not take care of it today in a stress-free environment? Attendees leave the party with a very specific idea of what information is needed should something happen to them. Parties usually last up to 3 hours with breaks for food, drink and hugs.
