The Great Debate: Is it okay to leave a party with drinks?

Should you leave your beer in the fridge when you leave a party?

Every week we debate the topics that drive you nuts.

Yes

Maddie Gray, Sales Director

Not in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought this was acceptable until I was last to leave a party and noticed a bottle of Louis Roederer champagne sitting opened, still cold and only ¾ drunk (the bottle not me).

This is a crime of great proportion!

I’m not advocating binging a bottle of Louis Roederer as a roadie on the way home, but more of a nightcap as you watch 20 minutes of Rage before bed.

It’s a yes, but there is fine print.

No

Rachel Fenner, Social Media Producer

When you leave a party your booze shouldn’t leave with you.

Leftovers are a nice way to tell your hosts: “thanks for having me.”

At a larger gathering, you’re bringing alcohol to contribute to the party and it becomes group property.

Taking it with you is just plain rude and you’ll help prevent people from making the stupid mistake of driving (inebriated) to the liquor store at night because they’ve run out of drinks.

And if your host doesn’t drink the beer or spirits you brought, it’s there for you the next time you visit.
