One Dreamy Night

A wire story about the alleged attack on a Yale a cappella group stated that the attack had come after a night of drunken reverie.

The words reverie and revelry are close, but the meaning is quite different.

I am sure that some people have had a night of drunken daydreaming. But because the alleged attack on the group happened after a New Year's Eve party, I am sure the writer meant revelry.
