Who is doing a Christmas/holiday party or other client appreciation event this year? My partner and I are struggling with what to do given Covid.

Joined a nicer club in the area last year. Doing lots of golf. We’ve been talking about doing smaller 6-8 people events.

We have already committed to our Holiday Party on Dec 4th. Plan early !!!

We just did a Christmas in July event yesterday. Had 100+ people in our office and outside. Had burgers, drinks, and live music. It was a huge hit. We did it to try to get ahead of whatever may come in the fall. We may just do a big summer event like this every year instead of our traditional Christmas party.

If agency/client teams made tomato bisque: "Tastes delicious. It needs hot sauce. Let's add that and pass it off to the sous chef." "Hmm, not sure about the hot sauce. Take it out and add some salt. Also let's put some squash in there. Let's let the head chef take a look." "No, let's go back to what we had before. Are we sure a spoon is what we need for cutlery?" "Forks are huge on insta right now. What if we did a two-tuned fork?" "YES. Okay, the maitre'd thinks we should put the squash back in." "Would it be possible to also put salt on the fork?"
