The annual Sandbar staff holiday party was Sunday night, and it was fun!
The bar was closed to the public until 9 p.m. so we could treat our staff to food and fun. The always-popular white elephant/gift-stealing game was the highlight of the night, and this year Dave added a twist: in order to steal someone else's gift, you had to answer a question from "Fact or Crap." If you correctly guessed fact or crap, you could steal; if not, you had to pick a new gift.
The first white elephant gift was a box of autographed Turner Gill footballs. It may have gone downhill from there.
Some of the other white elephant gifts included items from last year's gift exchange; an ancient broken scanner; a personal massager; a pink flamingo light; and a three-pack of ladies' camisoles. It's always a strange assortment.
Everyone was encouraged to wear crazy hats, and most of the attendees obliged. We had Santa hats, Viking hats, cowboy hats and sock monkey hats.
And we even had a surprise visitor! Drew, aka "Steel Wolf," a bartender from many years ago, stopped by with his lovely wife.
We opened the bar to the public around 9 p.m. and the party continued the rest of the night. Thanks to all of our staff for the awesome job you do all year round!
