“The Cocktail Party - a device for paying off obligations to people you don't want to invite to dinner.”

“....what is your host's purpose in having a party?  Surely not for you to enjoy yourself; if that were their sole purpose they'd have simply sent champagne and women over to your place by taxi.”
P. J. O'Rourke (1947 - )

 

“Cocktail party:  A gathering held to enable forty people to talk about themselves at the same time.  The man who remains after the liquor is gone is the host.”
Fred Allen

 

“Soup is cuisine's kindest course.  It breathes reassurance; it steams consolation; after a weary day it promotes sociability, as the five o'clock cup of tea or the cocktail hour.”
