Drinking on the Job

With the success of Chelsea Handler’s Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, I got to thinking how drinking and publishing go together like lunch and three martinis. This being Friday, I know a few of you have been out for the obligatory Thursday night Happy Hour and hope you made it in to work today.

I remember back to my early days at Avon Books when we would celebrate each NYT bestseller by gathering the staff in the tiny conference room, break open a few bottles of bubbly and pat ourselves on the back for a job well done. At another house there were the occasional half-day summer Friday Bloody Mary Brunch. Receptions with open bars? Forget about it, we’re there. And then the infamous holiday parties where at least a few hook-ups have happened (and more than one marriage resulted) among colleagues.

With all this drinking going on I was wondering how far it goes? Is everyone in the publishing industry a lush or are we moving more towards tea-totaling. Vote in the poll!
