No Office Party to Go to this Year??? WE GOT YOU! (& $3 PUNCH!)… Thursday (12/12)

Around this time last year I was fuming at my corporate job (a multi-bazillion dollar company) because they refused to pay for our annual Holiday dinner and drinks – after over 6 years of hooking it up! Then I QUIT.

And as the holidays approached I got a wee bit sad to think that this year I wouldn’t be able to get drunk and act like a fool in front of my colleagues. Then my two favorite blogs – The Skint & Brokelyn asked Greenpointers to host the NO OFFICE HOLIDAY PARTY with them.

It’s this Thursday 12/12 at Littlefield (622 Degraw St) beginning at 7:30pm. SO THERE!!! All of Greenpointers’ contributors are coming and you should come party with us, too! We are also in charge of the Photo Booth, Decorating & Raffles and taking it to a whole new level…obviously.

RSVP

Whether you are a freelancer without an office or maybe your co-workrs are just plain lame – this is going to be THE BEST holiday party in Brooklyn!

We’ll have all the trappings of a holiday affair, featuring:
*Live-band karaoke from Bunnie England & The New Originals
*dance tunes from DJs Brian Blackout & Spoolwork (Head On, YDH2S)
*a holiday photo booth
*food!
*A holiday gift items raffle
*Sexy Santa and Lady Santa
*Music by the ladies of Handjob Academy
*special holiday punch, just $3 for the first hour!
*mistletoe like woah
*and a special guest comedian!

Come join your favorite Brooklyn blogs and dance like your boss isn’t watching all night long.

Hosted by Jo Firestone, co-creator of Punderdome 3000 and proprietor of the Tiny Comedy Club.
