The Bolder Life: ‘Tis the Season


‘Tis the season for—what else—company holiday parties.

Time to spend a few unpaid hours with your co-workers. Time to drink martinis and cocktails on your boss’s tab and fill up your Facebook page with incriminating photos of your cubicle neighbors. And most of all, it’s time to build moral. Time for the boss to give an exceptionally captivating speech that will motive staff members for one more year and time for the staff to share their well thought out business models that typically involve an increase in their personal salary.

The best holiday parties involve events that shouldn’t be talked about at the water cooler, but usually end up being shared with everyone from the postal worker that delivers the mail on Monday, to your boss’s sister who heard from her sister-in-law about the office party shenanigans.

So whether you are the boss, or you got stuck planning the holiday party this year– check out the venues below. You’ll be sure to be a hit. Your co-workers will probably feel the need to buy you drinks all night and will only say good things about you at the water cooler come Monday.
