I heard you need to bring marriage certificate or show Facebook relationship status in order to verify seriousness

You know we’re 3 different firms right? I’m in a big city and we have a holiday party every year with SOs invites. Since I’ve been here, about half have been black tie optional and half have been themed (but still formal; think Gatsby)

We rented out Rockefeller Rink last year. I went to a McKinsey party in NYC a couple years ago as a +1. Biggest douchefest I’ve ever been a part of

I own it. Mainly because my firm only does a HH for the holiday. Not even at a rented venue!

The holiday parties in my office have been very nice. Black tie optional. Cool venues (museums, galleries). Everyone gets a guest. Strong attendance from partners.

There's a holiday party for every single office, and yes SOs always invited if that's what you're asking.

Yeah when I was there it was just a small party for the practice. Good times tho. Deloitte rents out the Rockefeller rink for all their employees! Waaaay cooler

Wait so you’re saying you want to fly out to an MBB holiday party..?

Assuming it’s only serious SOs and not like friends for the +1?

I am not going anywhere...? I was just curious

For us, it doesn’t matter who the +1 is. Ours last year was at the Boston Public Library. None are black tie but some folks choose to go for it!

You guys get parties? We get “day of developing...” and that’s it. And that’s just one day a year.

Gotta be at least Facebook official otherwise you will be let go from the firm. Can’t be bringing your hook up from the night before. Escorts allowed though.

Holiday party in major offices no +1
