Just in case you are reading this and you have your Christmas party coming up and you don’t have a date, check this out… Going to your christmas party alone is not that bad. Sure, I get it. We all would like to have someone to share fun nights with and (go home with) after. BUT, I’m here to tell you, it will be ok. I went alone to our company party for the first time in about 5 years. There are advantages of going to your party alone:
- You don’t have to worry about your date getting drunk and embarrassing you.
- You don’t have to worry about if your date is feeling out of place because they don’t know anyone.
- You can stay/leave whenever you want.
Our party was very tame this year and a small group of us came back to my bar for karaoke after. A good time for sure.
My new restaurant had a very, very soft opening on Friday. No, we weren’t really open for business but I did promise (on social media) that we would be open. So, even though we couldn’t sell anything because I didn’t have my proper permits yet, I got to know some of the customers that came by and we all hung out for 3 hours. We watched football on TV and I had some music going and even karaoke. I know you won’t believe this but I didn’t sing. Anyway, I THINK we have all of the work completed now and we should be able to open by Tuesday…(Fingers crossed!)
I can’t tell you what a relief this will be to finally get open.
