Christmas Party Report 2009

Thanks to your tips, here are the results of our 2009 Christmas party survey:

FirmLocationNotes
Brownstein HyattTIOpen bar (watch out for the crazies).
Marquis & AurbachLV Paiute Golf ResortBus service for the boozers.
Kaempfer
Crowell
Dinner at Managing Partner's HouseOpen bar, party gifts, transportation for the boozers, Reno office flown in for the evening and put up at a hotel.
Santoro DriggsEncoreOpen bar.
Alverson TaylorATMS BasementParty is at noon on Christmas Eve.
Mainor Eglet CottleVacant Penthouse @ Queensridge TowersOpen bar.
Lewis BrisboisNo party, but no work on Christmas Eve.+ 8.o Billable Hours
Richard HarrisNo (Christmas) cruise this year.Bunch of ingrates! Half the money spent on last year's cruise goes to charity.
Jones VargasNo party for you!Bah humbug.
Bowler DixonWhat else ... BOWLing.Boulder Bowl in Boulder City ... unlimited food and bowling.
Bremer WhyteUpscale bowling. Red Rock VIP Lanes. We're calling this one our winner this year ... very cool. Congrats BWBO!
CPKThe Four SeasonsOpen Bar, raffle for cash and vacations, we'd expect nothing less from the party king himself.

When in doubt ... bowl! Some firms got a little budget-creative this year, and we like it. We'd much rather hang out with our office mates at the lanes (where we're sure to embarrass ourselves) that attend some stuffy booze-fest where we have to worry about embarrassing ourselves. Good on ya to those firms that chose fun over fancy this year!

I used to work at LBBS. If they are really giving you 8 billable hours and Christmas Eve off, I would much prefer that to some awkward "during work-time" party at the main office that lasts from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m.

From what I've heard about LBBS, it means you don't have to come in but you don't get credited for 8.0 billable hours if you are an attorney.

Craig Kenny and Associates was at The Four Seasons, open bar, great buffet and a raffle for cash and vacations!

The Four Seasons had great food but lousy dessert this year. Liam was not a happy camper. It failed to complement his turkey and catsup.

Vannah & Vannah rented out the patio at P.F. Chang's, footed the bill for all bar ordered drinks and, of course dinner. All attorneys, including Bob Vannah attended.

G. Dallas Horton & Associates did their usual, Dallas had food catered, all attornies gave presents, Dallas also handed out gift baskets from doctor's offices to all employees instead of taking them all home. Party was held in his office on Christmas Eve, office closed early.
