My wife has a party after work with her coworkers. Spouses are supposed to attend, which is fine with me, but it's always a little awkward to follow the conversations when their all about a different field of work than what you do. Maybe there will be some spouses I can talk to.
My wife also mentioned one of her coworkers was talking about bringing "test tubes" for shots. I had to think about that for a minute, then it figured it out: those shots of liquor that are chilled in little test tubes.
I think I'll stick with beer or wine. I don't much go for drinks that taste like lighter fluid and sugar.
