Here's an unconfirmed account of a holiday party from last month:
[Well-known firm] NYC party on [date] at the [fancy place] was not up to snuff. While the venue was sleek, and the band was good, – the food, and most importantly the booze was not. The bar only served one choice of white wine and one choice of red, and they also had vodka. But no prosecco, no gin, no whiskey, no tequila. Halfway through the party, the bar ran out of tonic and lemons. The booze offering was so much of a disappointment, that I witnessed [Firm's CEO] trying to get a good ole gin and tonic at the bar, – and unable to get one – calling [someone in charge of the party] to complain about the buzz-killing understocked booze supplies.
Sound like your bash? We removed the particulars so that you may hatch this mystery for yourselves. Good luck.
