A Business Dinner Substitute? (a little time problem in a script)

Hey, I have a bit of a time problem in a script I was working on.

I have a scene where the lead character burst into his ex-wife's house in the middle of a business dinner and creates this huge scene.

Problem is I recently realized other elements of the script force his arrival to be between 2PM and 4PM.

And nobody has a business dinner at that time. The actual dinner part of is really not an issue, I just needed unrelated people at the house to be witness to the scene; these should be people of class and importance (in a business not story sense). What's a good substitute for a business dinner?

@MrIVI,
Hmm, dropping things off at the house, maybe even a company vehicle? Oh, stay for some tea .... Love in the afternoon? Could be all getting back from some sort of a part of the day business trip (I used to audit for a living, and sometimes we'd finish early in the day -- we'd pretty much never go back to the office until the following business day).

I don't ususally think of a business dinner being held in a home, more like in a restaurant.

Can the people just be working on a project at the womans house?

@chai2,
Actually, that's a better idea, just working together.

@MrIVI,
Could this person have an office at their home? Maybe some sort of business meeting in general?
