The good, the bad and the big easy

December 2012 was four months ago and last year, but I’m going to take you back to the most wonderful time of 2012 and discuss the office Christmas party of a lifetime.
A little background: Every year our Christmas party is a surprise. The exclusive planning committee — it really exclusive I’ve tried to get on if for years — keeps plans under wraps until the party time.
Instructions we were given for this party:

  • Don’t schedule any meetings for Friday, December 7th. We will leave the office at 10 am.
  • Make sure you have your driver’s license, I know that seems like a give in, but you can’t get into the evening festivities without it
  • We will wrap things up Saturday around 4:30 pm

Packing list we were given:

  • Cocktail attire for dinner and going out, IMPORTANT: guys MUST wear a jacket to dinner (we will have time to change and freshen up before dinner)
  • Pajamas
  • Phone charger
  • Sleeping bag & pillow
  • Dress shoes
  • Walking shoes
  • Toiletries
  • Contact lenses/glasses
  • Sunglasses
  • Comfy clothes for Saturday

After months of teasing us, trying to throw us off we pulled up to DFW, got on a plane and landed here:
Yes. We had our office Christmas Part in New Orleans and it was INCREDIBLE.
