All full-time, regular office and field office employees in the Bay Area, Southern California and Arizona are invited to the annual Employee Appreciation party on February 2, 2019 from 7-10:30pm at 969 Market St. in San Francisco. Attending employees are permitted to bring one guest to the event. All attendees must be 21 or older - no exceptions. This year, we’re bringing Las Vegas to the Bay Area and will have live casino games and card tables in a prohibition-themed environment at the event. Guests will enjoy heavy appetizers, drinks and music, along with a photo-booth and speak-easy whiskey tasting experience.
AttireThis year, there are two options for attire: party attire or prohibition-themed attire. Cocktail/party attire is typically slacks and a dress shirt for men (tie and jacket optional) and a dress or slacks and blouse for women (for more clarification, click here). For inspiration for those who want to dress in 1920’s attire instead, click here or here. Dressing on theme is not required, but a fun option for those who are interested.
