Two Sentence Cultural History Reduction – A New Year’s Eve Party

I think this meal would take approximately one hour and a half to two hours to serve and eat, allowing for conversation.
While the hostess tidies the dining-room and kitchen the guests will have time to collect their coats and prepare to leave for the dance at approximately 9.30 pm

    What would be today's equivalent two-sentence reduction?

    "I think this meal would take approximately three to four hours to serve and eat, allowing for everyone to take multiple photos of each course, twitter their reactions and talk endlessly about the wine".

    Actually I think one sentence would do it.
