is Google's annual *Di*saster *R*ecovery *T*est. It's a way that we, as a company, test to make sure that we're prepared for catastrophes. There's been plenty written about DiRT -- we've published a paper with the ACM (http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=2371516
), and you can find out about it in various SRE AMAs (http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1w1y5m/we_are_the_google_site_reliability_engineering/
). That's not why I'm posting this, though.

and I asked our fantastic catering staff to prepare a dirty spread for Whiskey Wednesday, the weekly social hour for #SRE
in San Francisco. We usually have an excellent spread, but this time they outdid themselves. Here are a couple quick shots I took of the results. Not pictured: mudslides I was making at the bar.
 Whiskey not required for attendance, though many people choose to indulge.
