Mory’s supports and upholds the history and tradition of Cup Parties. These rules have been drawn up to ensure that Mory’s complies with the law as regards the responsible service of alcohol. Management and the Board of Governors are committed to ensuring that Mory’s complies with all local, state and federal laws including Connecticut Liquor Licensing Laws.
All participants of in an alcoholic Cup Party are subject to a check of a valid, government issued ID. Anyone attempting to participate in a Cup Party by using a fake ID will be denied use of the Club. Those participants of age 21 and over will be given wristbands, which indicate to staff that attendees have been cleared as being of age and can be served. Servers are not permitted to serve anyone without a Cup Party wristband, nor may anyone without a wristband participate in drinking from an alcoholic Cup.
For any student-organized Cup Party or at the discretion of Management, any Cup Party that includes anyone under the age of 21 will be served only non-alcoholic Cups, and no alcoholic Cups or any other alcoholic beverages will be served. In addition, the Cup Party must take place in the main dining room or Temple Bar and not in a private room.
Bringing in alcohol from outside is contrary to the liquor licensing laws and is therefore not permitted at Cup Parties. Anyone who brings alcohol into the Club will be asked to leave immediately, and the Cup Party will end immediately.
The number of alcoholic Cups served is at the discretion of Management and must comply with the responsible consumption of alcohol.
Supervision of Cup Parties is at the discretion of Management, who reserve the right to require that doors to private rooms be kept open.
To ensure the return of Cups, a driver's license and credit card per Cup are held as security at student-organized Cup Parties and at other Cup Parties at the discretion of Management.
The Member who sponsors the Cup Party will be held responsible for the behavior of him/herself and his/her guests.
Management reserves the right to end a Cup Party and remove from the Club any attendee if any of the rules above are violated, or if any attendee becomes intoxicated, or if disrespect is shown to staff and Management. A report will be submitted to the House Committee regarding such matters, and the House Committee will confer with Management regarding appropriate disciplinary measures, which may include suspension or termination of membership.
