Company holiday parties are fraught with danger. Making a drunken fool of oneself in front of people you see Mon-Fri from 9-5 for the next 365, telling your superior what you really think of her, not to mention the possibility of infidelity, rejection, and in 2017 sexual harassment. Handicapping the company holiday party as a prospective investment, which in some ways it is, there is no upside, other than free drinks and food, and massive downside. So as your adviser1, I recommend that you just say no.
Especially if it occurs tonight, December 14. That is because there will be a zoning meeting for the proposed Plaxall development where city planners and the community board (CB2) will be soliciting comments and ideas from the public as to if it should be allowed, and if so what concessions should be made. While those attending will each have his/her request, I know there is a small faction that will be there to make the case for the Louis Pfohl Rec Center in the heart of Hunters Point. Why not consider adding your voice and making it a larger faction, maybe even a movement? That’s an investment (in time) that I do recommend.
