In the past couple of weeks I have attended quite a few “office” x-mas parties. The difference is, when your office is a bar, the whole holiday party has a different vibe. First and foremost, seeing your co-workers drunk is not the least bit unusual, actually expected. The risk of someone having too much and performing some monumental feat of stupidity is no greater than any other Monday – Saturday. Also, most bars have a relatively small staff. However, you end up with roughly four times the number of party goers as employees. Everyone who hangs out at the establishment tends to either be invited, or find out and crash on their own. Maybe it’s the free booze or maybe the “hip factor” of hanging out at the bar when it’s not open. Well, I’ve got my “office” x-mas party this weekend. And despite the expectations of those who don’t work there, it is usually one of the tamest get togethers I attend during this time of the year.
