There were bottles of alcohol on a Christmas tree, and the objective of the party was to "Drink the Tree." I know, I know, Tony is a genius. And even better? This is the 3rd annual Drink the Tree.
And the 200 people attending the party did drink that tree. Heartily.
Thankfully, I took pictures.
First, the Tree, as it was central to the party:
And yes, those are little airline bottles of alcohol, or "nips," hung on the tree. And yes, the tree was returned to Home Depot the next day.
For clarification, I've taken a close-up.
I know, I'm too good to you. Two pictures of the tree.
And still: Party-goers were instructed to bring their own nips to the party, so I made a sign, based on crudely-drawn pen and ink diagrams, of how to get Christmas ornament hooks onto a nip of alcohol:
And, there were MANY more nips at the party than actually were able to hang on the tree:
And. I might have had my fair share of the nips. I did end the night wearing antlers.
