Etiquette Question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine has a restaurant and invited me and guests to attend a party that they're having. The rest. will be closed and it will be just friends but I'm not sure what to do as far bringing something.

Usually, if I'm invited somewhere I'll bring wine / drinks or cook something (usually dessert) but I'm not sure what to do in this case since he owns a restaurant.

Any suggestions?

It seems to be a party for just the employees and the family.

What would the appropriate thing be to do?

Bring wine. I can't imagine the owner would object.

That's what I thought. Why shouldn't he appreciate wine?
Else, bring a book or something.

I was thinking that food or wine would be redundant but maybe you are right.

Funny you should mention books. I did think about a gift certificate (for books or CD's) or another type of gift like books or CDs..

In general, I think a book or a CD is better than a gift certificate. Far more personal. And even if he already's got the book or CD, he can still change it in the store you bought it. Anyone can buy a gift certificate, not everyone wants to deeply think about what he actually might like. This obviously requires you to know something about him.

Gift certificates are almost always impersonal and in bad taste.
