The week after New Years FLEW by. Short weeks are usually the ones that drag, since you have 4 days to do 5 days of work. I think we just had too much to regroup on for it to feel slow at work.
Friday at work was full of news that our VP is leaving. It's a personal decision, to spend more time with his family. That led to a few shuffles in the VP layer and gives our team a new boss, who happens to be my friend Lauren's old boss. So, we dropped by Christopher's after work for a drink to catch up on the changes, gossip and get some info on what we are getting into with new leadership! I'm mostly grateful that we are keeping internal people on our team - outsiders can be fantastic, or detrimental to our progress and processes.
We all will definitely miss the departing VP. It's a huge loss for the department.
After 'happy hour' - Scott arrived on the train in Back Bay. We tried out The Salty Pig which had a good beer selection and good food. We made a plate of some salami thing only Scott ate, a few cheeses and some balsamic onion spread. Then, I got a pizza -
And Scott got clams
We rounded out the night with a drink at a bar near my apt - that now has Racer 5 on tap! One of my favorite CA beers !
