I worked at this one bar in Henrico. Capital One would reward sales teams with a formal post work event. They had a limit of $4000 and these were big events (some people got wasted). This was not a once in a while thing, they did this about twice a week.
I often worked these events. It was pretty insane. I'd walk in the room and 20 people would mob me with orders. So I'd come back with 20 drinks, had to figure out who they went to. Some people would get angry that I didn't find them as if I'm suppose to remember everyone. But the second I got the 20 drinks out, 20 more orders. Thinking about it now it really never made sense how a large company would allow close to $8000 a week for their employees to get wasted.
