After a too-short bus ride, the Sandbar Christmas party made it back home safe and sound. We set out some food, set up a gift table, and waited for the rest of the staff and friends to get there…
It didn't take long for the guests to arrive. Pretty soon the bar was packed full of tacky Christmas sweaters and badly wrapped gifts. Drinks were flowing and games were getting started. Dave set up the much-anticipated Tippy Cup table and teams were chosen. They originally tried to play in the back room; if you've ever played this game, especially with this group, you'll know that the fish tank in the back room was in serious jeopardy very quickly. The table was moved out into the main bar.
After a few rounds of Tippy Cup and beverages, we started the gift exchange around 9:45.
Another post this week- or next- will highlight the gifts and the costumes.
The Sandbar will be closed today, Christmas Eve, and might be open tomorrow night. It depends on whether a few staff members want to come in on their holiday or not.
Don’t forget about the Tacky X-mas Clothes Contest. Blaire was obnoxiously awesome.
How could the Sandbar even think of not opening on December 25th? Duh….Jimmy Buffet’s birthday? Anyone?
The 25th? It sure looked open to me. Albeit not until later. Hope it was fun!
i don’t remember you offering to work on the 25th, danny! 🙂
john opened up for awhile so people could grab a drink somewhere.
and pants, the clothes are coming up in another post. i have to spread this stuff out to fill the days, you know.
