Crew dinners are rarely drama free events as hidden tensions of all kinds raise up when drinks start to go down and inhibitions disappear into the night.
The time to celebrate seasonal success invariably becomes a drunk fest associated with teary eyes , twisted ankles, crew altercations, lost phones, wallets, purses and shameful Facebook postings and awkward crew mess chat about the nights events.
When crew clicks divide dinner tables and secret lovers play footsies and make out in the shadows and the established couples begin to steer towards the rocks as forgotten love drifts apart.
The best part about crew dinners is next day gossip. That can deliver embarrassing moments for some and hours of laughter for the rest.
