After work today, I headed to Matt’s holiday party at the office. I really didn’t feel like getting un-dressed to go to the gym and then showering and getting dressed and re-doing hair and makeup all over again, so I decided a walk would be the better option today. I ended up walking from my apt to Matt’s office downtown, which is no big deal in the summer (~3 miles), but this was an accomplishment in the cold temps. To be honest though, I warmed up pretty quickly and it was actually quite pleasant. I arrived a little late, so the food was a bit cold, but it still tasted pretty good.
I made a plate of shrimp, mac + cheese, pulled pork, a veggie dumpling, and some kind of chicken guy on a stick.
The pulled pork and shrimp were the best, so I went back for seconds…
I also enjoyed two Dogfish head’s over the course of the evening. I’ve had the Raison D’Etre before (and love it), but I believe this was my first time trying the Indian Brown Ale. I wasn’t a huge fan (because I’m not as into hoppy beers). I also wasn’t really feeling alcohol tonight, so I didn’t even finish the second one.
What’s a Christmas party without sweets?
The cookie was blah (too hard)…
and the carrot cake and mini key lime were only satisfactory. I’m such a dessert snob.
I really enjoyed chatting with Matt’s co-workers…I always find the people at his company so interesting! I’m pooped tonight and I don’t even know if I have the energy to pack a lunch for tomorrow. Off I go. Good night:)
