MIGHTYminnow is host to a Meetup Group called Bay Area Web Freelancers. As many freelancers know, being a freelancer has a lot of perks like setting your own schedule and working in your pajamas at home. Unfortunately, being a freelancer makes it pretty hard to have a company Holiday party, so we decided to hold one for everyone who didn’t have their own party to attend.
The party was full of great food, drink, company, and entertainment. More than just web freelancers attended and many were able to get advise about their finances from a bookkeeper, health from a chiropractor, and caffeine from some coffee and chocolate experts.
The guys from Bittersweet stopped by and brought us some delicious treats from their cafe in our building. We had an ugly Christmas sweater contest, won by our very own Mickey; although Patch the dog came in a very close second. The prize was a classic Christmas Fruitcake make by some monks in Belgium.
We hosted a small White Elephant Gift Exchange with prizes like a glitter computer mouse, a coffee mug hotplate, and piggy bank that counts its change. Santa even stopped by at the end of the evening.
