Eat, drink, and be merry is a saying that means a little something different for vampires. These creatures of the night may crave the taste of fresh, hot blood, but you can capture their spirit in a toned-down menu that your human guests will actually enjoy eating. These dishes may look a bit creepy, but even squeamish party-goers won't be able to resist their flavor.
