Abstract or Description

The purpose of this article is to explore the social meanings of recreational alcohol consumption within the context of the restaurant working environment. The social influences which may precipitate drinking are important factors, but studies have not usually focused upon the dysfunctional and facilitating role alcohol has within various types of workplaces. This paper summarizes literature which specifically addresses social influences on drinking and then illustrates how behaviors in the restaurant workplace environment are significantly patterned around alcohol consumption.
