In our office... we do teamwork,
we do help, we do respect,
punctuality and laughter.
We do friendship.
We do coffee.
We do birthdays. And cake.
We communicate and listen.
We do motivation.
We do great things.
And once a year we throw a big party to celebrate the little things and the big things. To welcome new faces and visit with the faces we miss. You see, as our little labor of love grows bigger each year, we find ourselves having to make a special effort to remain close. This party is part of that. It's our annual work family reunion. An effort to check in and spend quality time with our coworkers and their husbands and wives.
We spend a day together outside - eating and drinking and dancing. We usually conclude with a bonfire and more music and marshmallows and this year was no exception. But before we get in to the details of the Harvest Moon party, let me just say that this connection we share is what makes coming to work at Lazy Dog different than most jobs.
Here we are family.
And this family knows how to party.
This year's celebration landed on a full moon. Not only was it a full moon but it was a super/red/harvest moon. Total eclipse. Totally insane.

Lunar Magic aside, we believe that a good party is all in the details:
Oyster Shuckers: shucked to order by the girls from Oysters XO
Cheese + Charcuterie: La Femme Epicure
Custom Wood Chairs: Byer of Maine
