Party Drinks

Sure, it’s possible to hold an Over the Hill party without alcoholic beverages, just like it’s possible to hold a wake without booze. But don’t expect people to attend or stay long. Alcohol is the social lubricant that keeps all those squeaky parts from rubbing together noisily. And remember, friends don’t let friends drive!
