Booze at the Fed

David Wessel notices this factoid from the Inspector General’s report on the Fed:

The policy states that alcohol cannot be served at events where only Board employees are present. Further, for events where alcohol is served, service is limited to a 90-minute period and cannot begin before 5:30 p.m. These requirements apply to events held at Board and non-Board facilities.

So they really do take away the punchbowl.
