Office Cook Off: If you are on a slim budget office cook-off is a simple resolution to the office holiday party. Let everyone vote for the best entrée, best drink, best side, best dessert.

Courses also give everyone extra time to mingle and enjoy the downtime, and allow for entertainment and mingling in between.
