Drunk CoWorkers: Part Deux

My department at work had a holiday happy hour last night. We originally planned to go to the W Hotel, but ended up at The Hunt Club.

Tipsy

Mommy Ursula came home tipsy tonight. She talked about spending the night out with coworkers at Tilli’s and then the Marquee Lounge. She also mentioned that she met Madeleine Albright earlier today. I suppose I’ll find out more about that tomorrow. For now, I’m just glad she’s home.
