Jingle and Mingle! Oh, What Fun! Holiday Cheers to the Year! Let’s Get Elfed Up! Eat, Drink and be Merry! Any of these sound familiar? If you haven’t yet encountered one of these festive and yet cliché holiday phrases, I’d venture as far to say that you have yet to receive your invite to this year’s annual corporate holiday party. Yes, that’s right…it’s that time of the year again. That time when all the hard work you’ve done over the past eleven and half months culminates into one appreciative outing thrown by your company. Given the spirit of the holidays, I like to think of it like we’re all a bunch of jolly Kris Kringles and the holiday party is a plate of cookies waiting for us at the other end of that chimney…bake it and they will come!…it’s our time amidst the busy season to stop, relax and perhaps overindulge in something sweet and thoughtful put out by the people that believe in us.
Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer…whoa, whoa, whoa! Is this “Twas the Night Before Christmas” or a checklist for the party? The list of themes, places and ideas for this holiday extravaganza can run as long as Santa’s scroll of naughty or nice…Where do we go? What do we do? What theme should we have? Which gift should we bring? How long should the party be? At this point I’m sure you’re sitting in your cubicle reading this and wishing you could interject to ask the all-important question, “Hey listen, are we going to have an open bar at this thing ooorrr…?” Let me assure you, the employee endeavored with the task of planning this event has not only prioritized that, but is also wandering how much eggnog and hot coco they need to supply in order to push you towards “the responsible choice”…because unfortunately we all can’t have an A-team of reindeer to guide our sleighs home.
This is where we, at Viper Alley, come in handy. When it comes to planning events, we’re like an elf building a rocking horse…it’s a repetitive craft, we’re efficient and productive, we’ve done it a hundred times and just like that horse, we’ve rocked them all…we just need a little linseed oil to put the finishing touches on it and then we can put a bow on it! We’re ready to jingle bell rock and roll for you…or maybe jingle bell rock and…bowl, might be more fitting. With 15,000 square feet, a stage for entertainment, six bowling lanes, twenty television screens, flexible food menu items…and yes for you still begging the question…we do have two fully stocked bars Viper Alley will be sure to be the place where you can dash, dance and prance all through the night. Our workshop (in Lincolnshire, so a little warmer than the North Pole) can take your holiday wish list and turn it into a reality. With a little imagination and a creative vision, we’d be happy to help you bring to life a holiday party that meets all your needs and demands, so that you can deliver a gift that is both memorable and appreciated by your employees. Viper Alley is the red light that will guide your sleigh through a night of joy and merriment, all you have to do is call us by name, “Now…”.
