Has anyone participated in that type of party?

I have, but only once, and it was nearly ten years ago. Two friends and I did a progressive dinner for Thanksgiving one year -- one friend did soup and salad at his place, the other friend did the main course at his place, and I did dessert (pies) at my place. It worked out quite well, and was fun.

I like to eat out a lot, too -- usually my main meal of the day five to seven times per week, but I keep it cheap by going to low-cost restaurants (mostly ethnic -- Chinese, Thai, Italian, Mexican, etc.) that are also good quality, and taking advantage of their lunch specials in the middle of the afternoon. I don't cook at all, but if I did, I figure that after I bought all the ingredients, it would cost me more to prepare the same types of meals myself at home than it does to dine out, especially since I'm single and would be cooking for one, which I reckon is less cost-effective than cooking for two or for a family.
