The days of alcohol as a common ingredient of company parties is long over. Drunk driving has become a major social issue and, to a great degree, has been successfully addressed. Liability is now a more conscious element in all the decisions and actions taken by individuals, companies, organizations, etc.

Some employers have had parties at restaurants or hotels, thinking that that strategy limits liability. That might be false protection because the employer invited employees and guests to the venue and offered them alcohol.
