We’re as excited about the Emmys as the next person, especially when so many incredible shows came and went in the last year. GoT, Chernobyl, Killing Eve, Russian Doll, RuPaul, oh my god Fleabag.

To commemorate the last phenomenal year of television, we thought, what better than pairing it with our second love – Friday drinks. Not only is it the end of the week, but there’s a reward for our hard work! Our smalltalk sometimes even slips into real talk after a few beers! Come take the emotional rollercoaster of waiting for Friday beers with us, as told with GIFs from the 2019 Emmys.

When your office suggests doing fortnightly Friday drinks

Did they not hear what happened to Louis the 16th? The people will riot.

It’s dress to impress, baby.

When the drinks arrive
You and your team peek glances at the boxes rolled out of the elevator, applauding the sweet sweet people who procured them.

It’s been a long week, but you’re finally at the end of it. You’re all watching those pixels in the corner of your screens. 3.59pm switches to 4.00pm and the entire office marches to the breakout area.

Watching them unlock the beer fridge
The anticipation – the intrigue! What did they order this time?

When you see the office actually got the good stuff
We’re talking Gage Roads Summer Ales, sparkling, Pinot Grigio and stouts. STOUTS!

Reminiscing the workweek with your colleagues

After your first beer

After your second

When you come back from the fridge with extra beers for your table

When someone else doesn’t

When you bury the hatchet with your work frenemy
After a couple of beers you suddenly don’t see why those people who bothered you before, really bug you at all. You LOVE them!

When a few drinks make you and your colleagues unionise

Schrödinger’s Party
It’s 6pm, the office is abuzz with talk of a party. You’re torn between going home and going out. There’s always a definite ‘best’ choice. Sometimes the after-work party gets weird, or fizzles out – other times they’re the talk at the office for the next month. You won’t know which one it is until you make a choice to turn up or turn in.

Friday drinks – We got you!

Did you know Tipple organises ice cold work drinks for offices in Melbourne and Sydney each week? If you’d like Friday drinks without the stress make sure you get us to bring it next time. Use code OFFICEDRINKS for $20 OFF orders over $200.

Your Guide to Hosting an Adult Sleepover For Your Friends

Who doesn’t feel nostalgic for childhood sometimes?

Childhood was a wonderful responsibility-free time when hanging out was mostly about spending time with your friends. What activity you did wasn’t as important. Well, sleepovers were the epitome of childhood, and as such, hosting one is the easiest way to get transported back into that pre-adult life before responsibilities and bills, careers, and such. But an adult sleepover can have alcohol too, so it’s actually heaps better. Here’s how you make it a great one!

Be careful about who you invite

It’s so so easy to get loose in the invitation phase and invite a few people who might change the mood you’re trying to set for the night. Perhaps your sleepover plans are at the top of your mind when you bump into an acquaintance at a cafe, and before you know it you blurt out “Wanna come?” and immediately wanna kick yourself in the shins.

Remember, you really don’t have to invite everyone, it’s not your 4th grade birthday party. Don’t be mean about it obvi, but it’s fine to only invite your closest friends.

Boring adult sleepover logistics

Make sure you’ve got enough sleeping space/food/booze for everyone invited. If you don’t, ask people to bring their own. We can also pop by with cold drinks if you’re running low!

Consider the mood you want to set

Ask yourself these two questions:
How do I want people to feel during the sleepover?
How do I want them to feel after the sleepover?

Let the answers to these two guide your choices and you’re a long way towards nailing an adult sleepover.

Make it a little magical

Adult sleepovers should feel a little like regressing back to childhood. Check your worries at the door and chill the fuck out. Changing up your place a little can help your friends do this heaps faster. How? Hang those fairy lights that 14-year-old you flipped out over, and drag your mattress into the living room. Cover it in blankets and pillows and make a blanket fort.

Plan some entertainment

Every friend group is different, and we’re not gonna pretend like we know yours. But what we do know is that everyone needs some entertainment. Whether that’s board games, karaoke, drinking games, face masks, dancing, chats, video games, or movies all night – that’s up to you. Just make sure you’ve got ample options available to keep everyone happy.

Plan super easy foods and drinks (and a TON of it!)

No one wants to be in the kitchen when fun’s being had in the living room. Easy does it, so stock up on frozen pizzas, entertainer spring rolls, garlic bread, and all the crisps and chocolate in the known universe.

For drinks, think premixers, wine and beer, or perhaps even a jumbo bowl of punch! Running low on alcohol is the bane of any adult sleepover, so be the Host With the Most and order top ups until 11pm!

No adult sleepover is complete without breakfast mimosas

Your gang awakes in the morning, either smooth skinned and glowy from a night of pampering, or bleary-eyed and headachey from one too many tequila shots, to a MIMOSA BREKKIE! Yep, it’s the best and not very expensive. Your mimosas can even be delivered cold to your door, so you don’t have to worry about fridge space.

Have fun

The best way you can make sure your guests have fun is to have fun yourself, and don’t get too frustrated if plans change or if people chat through the movie. Hey, listen, you’ll knock it out of the park.
