Plato and the educational value of the well run drinking party

In the opening passages of Plato’s The Laws, the Athenian makes the case that a well run drinking party is educational and teaches virtue, including temperance. I knew if I kept reading Plato, I would find something with which to agree.

I think I will go to the local bar this afternoon in pursuit of virtue. I’m hoisting the next one to you, Plato.
