Official Opinions: The Office Party Survival Guide

It’s that time of year again. Cubicle dwellers dread checking their e-mails daily because they know that soon enough they’ll see the “urgent” message regarding their RSVP to the holiday office party. The veterans will immediately seek a way out. The 20 year employee miraculously has no problem calling his wife and saying, ” You know, I’ve been thinking a lot lately, and we should really spend some more time with our family. Wouldn’t it be great if we visited your parents for the week?” It will be a cakewalk compared to dealing with the new kid who’s a bit too open about his personal life after a few glasses of punch.

If your office actually puts on a great party at the end of the year, then this post isn’t for you. However, we’re not all that lucky. For the rookies out there who aren’t able to come up with an escape plan before the party committee corners you, here are a few tips on how to survive the office party and avoid going down in office lore as “the guy that mistook the copy machine for a urinal.” Continue reading ‘Official Opinions: The Office Party Survival Guide’

He is the lead singer for a band called The Samples, which was formed in Boulder, Colorado in 1987, and came from the members’ early sustenance of food samples from the local grocery store.The group’s music can be described as a mix between reggae and rock/pop. Enjoy!

Stitely Soundboard: Stitely’s Valentine’s Dance- Oh What A Night!

I don’t know that there are enough words to describe the scene at Stitely Entertainment‘s Fourth Annual Valentine’s Day Dance last Saturday night. The Mid-America Club was an phenomenal host, with great views both inside and out.

The festively decorated interior was filled red and pink balloons, while guests marveled at the view of the city from the 80th floor.  The evening began with a delicious dinner prepared by the Club’s gourmet chef.  While the diners enjoyed their meal, a Stitely soloist serenaded the happy couples with romantic violin music.  It was after dinner that the dance party really began.

The Stitely Orchestra, Chicago Groove Collective and DJ Vincent did a fantastic job of getting everyone, old and young, on the dance floor and keeping them there all night.  As a company with a passion for celebration, it was so great to see everyone out there enjoying themselves, losing themselves in the music and ambiance of the affair.  Everyone had a great time dancing the night away with their friends and/or valentines. Some of the highlights of the evening include the Stitely Orchestra’s showstopping rendition of Janelle Monae’s “Tightrope.”  Joan Collasso’s voice really brought the house down! And we could not have been happier with the debut of the revitalized Chicago Groove Collective. Their versions of “Raise Your Glass” by Pink and “Only Girl” by Rihanna brought a ton of energy to the dance floor and collected any remaining wallflowers.  Another treat for the younger crowd was “California Girls” and “Groove is in the Heart.”

Another people-pleaser was the photo shoot area provided by Best Friend Photography and Design.  In another area of the Club, Ingid set up a blank background and box full of fun props and let the guests’ goofy antics do the rest.  A huge shout-out to Ingrid and her crew for the fab photos she took of the evening too!

Thank you to everyone who made this evening such a success! It was so great to see some of our past clients, interns and friends dance the night away.  For those of you who couldn’t make it, including our very own Peggy Latko, we missed you and hope to see you next year.

Cheers,
Jeff and the Stitely gang

Official opinions: Snowed in? 5 Movies I Would Recommend If You Can’t Leave Your House

Snow day anyone? Last week’s storm went down in the books as the third largest snow storm in history, resulting in 20 inches of snow!  Most people refused to leave their houses (and I am one of them) because of this extraordinary amount of snow. What does one do when they are bound to their homes you may ask? Personally, I sit on my couch and watch movies all day long! Here are the 5 movies I watched on my snow day. Give them a try!

Cheers,
Lauren

1. My Best Friend’s Wedding–Click here to see my favorite part!

2. Despicable Me–This one has THE BEST theme song! Check it out!

3. When Harry Met Sally–The famous “I’ll have what she’s having” scene. Classic. Everyone should see it at least once. Look here!

4. 10 Things I Hate About You

5. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off–A great musical moment in this one as well!
