The server room being the only constantly fresh place in the building, the Boss used it to keep some bottles of wine at the right temperature.
So when you entered you saw backup tapes, wine and champagne bottles, and various computer spare parts (mice, keyboards, HDs) all living in peace on the same shelf. Positive point, VIP visitors and the boss himself weren't the only ones who took advantage of the "liquid IT": We used to top off meetings with a glass of excellent white wine, or even champagne when the situation called for it (and it did regularly).
(For those who don't like wine, both the president and the CEO had some exceptional single malts in their office, and weren't stingy with it. And no, we weren't drunk all day, availability doesn't necessarily leads to abuse.)
