So, we have our holiday party coming up a week from Saturday. I'm always in charge of designing drink tickets and am looking for some ideas.

In past years, I have featured our President on a $0 bill with nothing too fancy otherwise, and last year, a retiring VP's head photoshopped onto a shrimpy guy's body. They are always well received, but I'm trying to come up with a different idea for this year. Let me hear some suggestions!

Preferably nothing political, mixing politics and copious amounts of alcohol tends to result in police involvement!

It needs to be something on paper, the bartenders record the type of drink on the ticket so they can bill us properly at the end of the night. I tend to carry around a couple hundred extra, and it's the one night of the year that I'm everyone's best friend!

I really like the idea of using images of your own people, and Sr. Mgmt. personnel are always excellent targets.....ummm i mean victims....uh...people to feature.

Perhaps pictures and then photoshop in some holiday type images or graphics? The CEO as Santa or Mrs. Santa (whichever applies) and others as elves or reindeer?

Happy, I can tell you from recent experience that it cost me $1.37 per to buy Euros, down just a tad from my July visit.

I've been browsing the Awkward Family Photos sites. I think I can find a good one to use for the senior management team and insult all seven of them at the same time! Perfect.

At my daughters X-Mas party they had play charge/debit cards. Some of the employees actually kept them.

Love that idea! laugh

Or that elf-maker site... not sure if you can do photos though, usually it's videos...

Found one, it's a nifty oldest to youngest pic, 7 siblings. It's now our management team! They have done the video in the past for the elf site, but it was certainly funny! Now to print up about 650 of these bad boys! I love tying up the printer for 10+ minutes smile

Here we go again! Searching for another fun/creative idea. Getting a jump on it this year, since we're only a month away from the party. No new management people to mock. Same as last year, needs to be on paper, large enough to keep track of but not be cumbersome.

Use the Monopoly card for bank error and change the language around. If you could change the hand with cash to a hand with a drink that would be great!

The card reads as follows:

Community Chest
BANK ERROR IN
YOUR FAVOR

COLLECT $200


...and change it to something like...

Community Chest
BAR ERROR IN
YOUR FAVOR

COLLECT 1 DRINK


Heres the image of the card... try changing the cash to a drink! http://www.bankrate.com/images_MRA/monopoly.jpg

Two great ideas so far! I could make a good effort with either one of those I'm quite sure.

Thanks to you both! Mani, you're drooling on the ideas...sheesh.
