Georgian social culture is collected in a ceremonial feast of traditional Georgian cuisine, wine and the traditional Georgian toastmaster – “Tamada”. This feast we call “Supra”. When you are in Georgia, you must experience Supra, but remember a few curiosities about it. – It can last from early afternoon well into the early morning. – Toasts are said by Tamada, which can last of twenty-thirty minutes and people seating on Supra, must listen and do not drink. – Once Tamada sits, the remaining guests at the table are required to offer additional toasts pertaining to the same topic. Topics include nationalism, the dead, the living, parents, children, friends, nature and, most popular, God. – It is frowned upon to leave the table for any reason without implicit permission from Tamada. – Tamada then proclaims “Bolo mde!” to which the guests retort “Bolo mde!” which translates to “until the end” – meaning drink the entire glass until it’s gone. – Appropriate activities occurring between toasts are light conversation, political brawls, repeated hugging and kissing, and most importantly, polyphonic singing and/or European style guitar songs usually sung by everyone at the table. – The primary function of these dinner gatherings is to celebrate birthdays, death days, religious holidays, funeral wakes and other social occasions. However, none of the aforementioned are required in order to warrant Supra. The only requirement is a gathering of two or more, as much wine as is on hand and the willingness to drink until it’s gone.
