Under a beautiful blue sky, the OLS team sat beneath two tall seafood towers at Hank’s Oyster Bar on the Georgetown Waterfront. This was the main event of an evening of networking, relaxation, and — most importantly — bonding.
Anyone who called our office last Thursday knows that we closed early, around 3:00 p.m., so that everyone could go home and get ready for our night out. We then regrouped inside of a massive limo-bus, where we sipped on champagne.
Our first stop was Stoney’s. We met up with other participants of Cushman & Wakefield’s annual Chili Cook-Off, which benefits the Race for Hope, a large fundraising event for brain cancer awareness, research, and advocacy. We co-sponsored the Stoney’s event and thoroughly enjoyed catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.
We hopped back on the bus and journeyed through D.C. to our surprise dinner at Hank’s. It was a feast for the ages: after two towers of lobster, clams, oysters, shrimp, and mussels, we dined on lobster rolls, salads, crab cakes, and more.
Afterward, we grabbed gelato for dessert and got back on the bus, enjoying our long ride home together.
“Our company showed me how generous and caring our team is,” said Alexis Larson, OLS administrator. “I love being part of the OLS family.”
Experiences like these help grow not only our friendships but also our trust in one another. We got to know each other on a personal level, which helps us work better as a team for you.
