Hi all,

I'm on digest but would like to get opinions on the following scenario.

As a freelancer, I charge by the hour. What is proper to do when your client takes the doc team out to celebrate a finished project or for someone's birthday? And you are expected to go (for political reasons). (I normally brown bag at my desk). Do you charge for the time since you are expected to be there? Does it matter if the company picks up the tab or not?

No flames please...I'd just like perspectives.
