After a very busy year, Hothouse employees were ready to celebrate in style at Il Localino, a cozy Italian restaurant nestled in Inman Park. We gathered with our plus-ones to eat copious amounts of Italian food, drink equally copious amounts of wine and participate in a Dirty Santa gift exchange—the theme for which was “Things to Survive the Apocalypse.” Gifts ranged from a gas mask to a bottle of Jack Daniels (clearly, the theme was open to interpretation).
Each employee’s ability to wear different hats went to a literal level thanks to Il Localino’s collection of toppers. In an instant, the Hothouse crew was transformed into a strange holiday version of the Village People. But hey, it worked. All in all, it was a fun, festive evening, which was made bearable the next morning thanks to a bag of Chick-fil-A biscuits and a bottle of aspirin. #hohoho
