Yeah, if it is a serve yourself type setup I'd definitely err on the side of too much meat. Our cul-de-sac had a block party earlier in the summer and we had crawfish, hamburgers and the all the sides. It was a serve yourself type setup. I had this funny feeling we needed to buy about ten more pounds of crawfish and several more burgers. Well thank goodness we did because you're always going to have "that family" who has one or two teenage boys or the entire family who simply piles food on their plate.
