At the end of shift, several officers gather at a bar for a few drinks, some jokes, and general stress relief so that the "work" isn't brought home. Generally it's the same bar, sort of a cop hang-out. Traditionally, newer officers cannot attend until they "prove" themselves and get asked to attend by a cop who is considered a veteran.
As a rookie, your first invite to choir practice is exciting, intimidating, and a huge relief because you have been accepted into the brotherhood.
