With that said, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Here’s the 9 startup activities from the holidays:
1. RIDE A PLAY PONY AT A HIPSTER BAR
Back for another year at the famed, Forest Room 5 (a hipster swanky bar in the Highlands neighborhood of Denver), the Elements set out for an unforgettable holiday party. No judgement here. A holiday party is far from complete until a couple colleagues get a little too rowdy and start playing with children’s toy.
2. STRUT DOWN THE RUNWAY FOR AN UGLY SWEATER SHOW
Ugliest sweater winners for skiers, bells, glitter and modeling expertise: (L to R) Alison Janecek, Atul Barve, Vineet Joshi and Bryan Rothhaar.
3. CRACK A CHRISTMAS PIÑATA WHILE HOLDING A BREW
Not sure when the holiday piñata became a tradition, but I guess “why not?” We cracked it open in less than three swings, and enjoyed a handful of holiday candy. (Although I’m certain the Holiday Party Open Bar was much more sought after then the candy).
4. SLOW DOWN FOR APRÈS-SKI WAY BEFORE APRÈS-NOON
I’m starting to think we’re a little spoiled living so close to the Rocky Mountains, with a short three hours in, we were ready for Après-ski before the clock struck noon. Looking forward to hitting the slopes again this winter with this double-black diamond group of avid skiers!
5. DECORATE WITH BALLOON ROCKET
Amidst all this holiday cheer, our marketing team was still fiercely hard at work launching the CRM and Marketing Hubs. To celebrate their accomplishments, we decided to decorate the office for the #HubLaunch this year:
6. GIFT WRAP LIKE MAD PEOPLE… WITH SKI GLOVES
Rules for this game are simple. Setup a bracket of one-on-one pairs, fastest wrapper with the ski gloves on moves on to the next round. We started with small boxes of chocolate in round one, to shoe boxes in round two, to ski boots in round three and a grand finale of chair wrapping.
7. … WRAPPING OBSCURE THINGS FROM SKI BOOTS TO OFFICE CHAIRS
8. EAT WAYYY TOO MANY HOLIDAY TREATS
Remember those holiday piñatas I mentioned? Apparently these guys are the gifts that just keep on giving. As if we didn’t have enough of a holiday feast to look forward to outside the office!
9. STREAM THE ELF-YOURSELF VIDEO
Last, but certainly not the least, no holiday office shenanigans is complete without a fun Elf-Yourself video of our leaders hip-hop dancing to Christmas music for everyone to watch.
