The Cocktail Party: What We Believe

We are not alone.
The Earth is filled with billions and billions of unique expressions of the universal life force, each of which has an important role to play in the drama of living.

Don't Yuck someone else's Yum.
The Cocktail Party believes in an individual's right to pursue their own path to the YUM, as long as their actions don't inhibit the pursuit of others. As the elder member of the Yummish Council has been known to say, “My right to swing my fist ends at the tip of your nose.”

Seek balance in all things.
OK, we basically cribbed this from the Buddhists, but we really dig yin-yang tattoos. (I mean we really dig them. A lot. And dragon tats. Yum!)

Serve the greater YUM in all that you do.
Do good things and good things happen to you. Do good things and, sometimes, utter shit happens to you. That's the game of life. Roll the dice and do the best you can. Doing bad things, no matter how tempting, only leads you away from the path to the YUM.

Tupac is alive, Elvis died in a suburb of Phoenix in 1997, and Mulder had a point.
The Cocktail Party believes in keeping an open mind and considering all possibilities, no matter how far fetched it may seem at first. Geometry, Heliocentrism, Democracy – History is filled with examples of progress fueled by imagination. While it wouldn't do to unquestioningly accept every crackpot theory you come across (i.e. Nazism, Facism, Dittoism) we do believe it is a good mental exercise to at least consider the possibilities. It keeps the imagination agile and flexible and more open to the YUM in all it's forms.

Party on!
The Cocktail Party needs you! After all, the more, the merrier. Call your local representative today and tell them you're switching to the only real party, The Cocktail Party.
