What does your family do on family night?

We don’t really have family nights per say but my sister and her kids do come over quite often. My parents and I live in this apartment and have lived here for over 10 years and my sister, her husband and their 3 kids, plus Barfi the Pug, live in a bigger apartment just 10 minutes away. So usually on a Saturday or Sunday my sister comes over to spend time with my parents and she will bring my niece over and if the boys are in town (my two nephews study in Bangalore) them too.

We usually end up ordering some food from a nice restaurant. I might have a beer or some vodka. Dad might drink a whiskey or two. We get fried chicken and burgers or some wraps. Or perhaps some fried rice, butter chicken, tandoori chicken or something of that sort. Lots of food and maybe Pepsi or some other soft drink for the kids. They usually watch some tv show or movie on our tv and sit and talk around the living room.

Me, I will be in my bedroom at my computer watching a football match or on Youtube. I will join them for dinner, check if I need to order something for us and if not I will lie back and watch a movie after they have left.
