At the Christmas Party hop....

It's that magical time of year again when the employees of law offices across the country join together to commiserate celebrate the holidays at the annual holiday party. For some of you, that means a genuinely good time. For others, it can really be the most miserable, uncomfortable event of the year. In years past we have heard about holiday cruises, fancy dinner parties at the finest restaurants, bowling, not-so-fancy dinner parties at the partner's house, lunch in the basement, and the equivalent cash value in lieu of a party.

What is your firm planning for the holiday party? An evening at Marche Bacchus or a night out at your local Dotty's? Anyone have any great holiday party stories to share? Do you have to attend to get a bonus (we'll talk more about bonuses in an upcoming post)? Do you exchange gifts? How many of you have had sitting judges at your parties? How many of you invested in real estate based on the recommendation of those judges?

  1. Pretty good showing of sitting judges at Eglet's fancy Smith Center party last Saturday. None of them wanted Eglet to fund an opponent

  3. My firm is taking all of us (Staff included) to StripSteak at Mandalay Bay. I caught wind the negotiations among the partners trying to appease everyone -- basically an eff you the vegetarians.

  4. Strip Steak has food for vegetarians. Would you have been happier with a firm trip to Sweet Tomatoes?

  6. To those Associates who are grumbling and looking gift horses in the mouth, did any of you articulate to your Partners/Firms what it is that you expect/want for a Holiday Party?

  7. Actually the Shark Pimp likes Sweet Tomatoes - and more importantly so does his Hunny Bunny. So if this soulless carnivore can find satisfaction amongst the bunny food, so can everyone else.

    Actually maybe I should take my Deputies there for Xmas...

    I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt due to issues in the legal system and to listen with an open mind but I have to tell you....that post is utterly unintelligible. I thought to try the Twitter. Nope-- makes no sense either. Help those of us with an open mind help you.

    RESPONSE~Just a reminder~About 1 yr ago WE made some predictions about what was coming down the road~Gee~interesting~that free-fall-tumble-roll down the mountain that Steve Jones is slip-a-sliding on now. Here's another prediction WE make~Don't be surprised to learn that a private investigator in your community may soon be facing some serious obstruction of justice charges soon~Has he done work for you in the past? Sure ya didn't get a PAKISTANI DEAL Bros?

    NOTE ABOUT FRIENDS ON HawkEye Facebook page-->We don't accept FB Friend requests~Our FB page is dedicated to the specific cause of Finding Jessie Foster who went missing from LasVegas 03/29/2006. What went down with Metro on this at the outset is another whole story unto itself. It's a story that ALL TOURISTS SHOULD KNOW-->If you go missing in Vegas, good chance the ball will be dropped by law enforcement right in the first steps of trying to find a loved one ~especially if that loved one was targeted by someone in the sex-trade industry (OKA=HUMAN TRAFFICKING). It is unacceptable.
    Facebook is the major methodology used by specific individuals in pulling off their extensive and far-reaching version of AFFINITY FRAUD~That's why the circle of Friends is limited to the insiders who are working this case. Thank you for understanding.

    WE won't be bothering YOU anymore. You want TheScoopHere_NV, come visit with US @Twitter.com
