Is it OK for the host to drink beer at their own wine party?

25 August 2008

Suddenly I felt like a nice cool glass of beer at a wine party that I was host at: had this discussion with E, is this acceptable when I only have four cans of beer in the fridge? In other words, if anyone else wanted beer, they wouldn’t be able to have it. We decided this was rude and I accepted a glass of wine. However, we reflected that Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm would have insisted upon the right to drink beer in his own home, and that some awkward guest would ask for some too, thus triggering one of those embarrassing situations that are the staple of the comedy sit-com.
