Would you drink with kids around?

 Last weekend one of the kids in the band had a birthday party for his 12th birthday and the mom had a cooler full of beer set up inside. While they were carefully making sure none of the kids there didn't get a beer, all of the adults were happily indulging, some of them to the point they were stumbling around and clearly intoxicated.

Would you drink like this with kids around?

Not at a 12 years birthday party first birthday parties are for the person having the birthday how is that fair for all those children to see these drunk adults. Second was there at least one person not drinking just in case something happen?

I drink around my 4 year old but never get drunk.. Recently at this fourth birthday party we had wine/beer for the parents. No one was drunk or inappropriate. Drinking responsibly is fine.

I don't provide it at parties but I partake in happy hour.
