Good evening with Northside.

Good evening from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Seen and noted.

This afternoon I passed on what could have possibly been the world’s best White Elephant Gift for next year. Check out this guy…

Wow. Just wow. πŸ˜€πŸ‰β€οΈ

Deskey holiday party.

Tonight was the Deskey holiday party, and this year it was held at Deskey…

Musical entertainment was provided by Moonshine and Wine

And dinner was provided by Gabby’s Cafe in Wyoming

It was another very fun holiday party. πŸ˜€πŸŽ‰β€οΈ

Happy holidays from Northside.

Before my work holiday party, we tried to take a nice Christmas in front of our tree…

Surprisingly, we don’t have a full-sized tripod. We just placed my Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on the little tabletop tripod and placed it on the ottoman in our living room. But the camera angle was a bit too low when we were standing up…

So we tried a few sitting down in front of our tree…

Sometimes you win and sometimes you don’t. This time we kind of didn’t but the results were pretty terrific and hilarious to us. πŸ˜€πŸ“·πŸŽ„πŸΎβ€οΈ

Pause for paws.

This morning we took Oscar to get his haircut…

He’s so dang cute when he’s fuzzy. And he’s so handsome after his haircut…

I really like his new blue bandana.Β πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Meet the Brewery: BrewDog.

Tonight, BrewDog USA was back at Higher Gravity. They were tapping a brewery only release single hop IPA from BrewDog called StrataHop. It was described as, β€œcitrus and tropical with just a hint of weed.”

It wasn’t bad. We’re just not a huge fan of IPAs. The other BrewDog beer they had on tap was Choco Libre Nitro Mexican Hot Chocolate Stout. And it was pretty amazing…

It was a wonderful stout with the perfect amount of heat on the back end…

It’s become one of our new favorite beers. We love Higher Gravity. They always have something delicious on tap. πŸ˜€πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸΊβ€οΈ

There’s a Christmas tree on the roof of Queen City Radio on Central Parkway…

How festive and fun is that? I’m also digging the light in the conifers that line their patio. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Deskey White Elephant Potluck.

Today was Deskey’s annual White Elephant Potluck Gift Exchange. And all sorts of delicious food made its way into the office for the event…

And of course, there were plenty of desserts too…

After everyone was done stuffing their faces, it was time for the main event…

The big foam fist beer koozie was brought in by our intern and was the hit of exchange. The pile of gifts kept getting smaller and smaller…

Finally, it was my turn. I ended up with this crazy detailed hippo serving tray…

And it goes perfectly with all the other items I’ve accumulated from the Deskey White Elephant Potluck gift exchanges throughout the years…

It was another very fun Deskey White Elephant Potluck. πŸ˜€πŸŽβ€οΈ

Seen and noted.

I guess it’s better late than never to go get that Christmas tree…

And I bet they got a really good deal on it. Christmas trees on the super cheap. Unless they’ve just driving around with the tree on top of their vehicle for the last few weeks kind of like that other SUV we saw a little while back. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Three years ago…

Remember when the temperature hit 72ΒΊ outside a few years back?

That was crazy. And we had the Deskey holiday party up at Rhinegeist

We walked through the Holiday City Flea at Washington Party and then onto Rhinegeist and I remember to took me forever to stop sweating because it was so warm outside and I wore a jacket. Thanks for the fun memories, Timehop! πŸ˜€πŸ¦•β€οΈ
