“The three-martini lunch is the epitome of American efficiency.  Where else can you get an earful, a bellyful, and a snootful at the same time?”

In last week’s issue of  The Economist  the three-martini lunch received a brief and entertaining eulogy, along with fresh insight into the sacred institution’s demise .  With the customary smirk and wit that only  The Economist can provide, the anonymous authors reflect on the past and dissect present American attitudes toward alcohol in the workplace through the eyes of two new psychological studies.  They also show us what we might be losing in this era of absolute workplace teetotalism (here’s a spoiler: it’s creativity ).

Coming from one of the few fields that, while never embracing the three-martini lunch, also never fully shunned the idea of alcohol at work, it’s fascinating to contemplate an era where business practices were fueled as much by martinis, oysters, and cigarettes as they are now by handshakes, mobile devices, and Congressional hearings.  How times have changed. The whole brief article is worth your time .
