holiday party

This post will not include a recipe, I promise.

Yesterday night I went to the annual holiday party. I was actually debating whether or not to go; last year's was super crowded, noisy, and there was an hour-long wait for parking. This year the party was moved from the city to Mountain View, so I figured I might as well give it another shot. That turned out to be a great decision; the theme was much better (outer space, very well executed, versus last year's very random Greek god theme), it was less crowded due to having split the party across two nights, the venue was divided into only three large rooms rather than five or six smaller rooms, and the food was significantly better, probably due to lots of people complaining after last time.

When the party started to wind down around midnight, we headed to an after-party nearby, which was awesome; it was a much smaller crowd, there was great music (lots of 80's), delicious hors d'oeuvres (tiny hamburgers, chocolate cupcakes, and various canapes), and real drinks, as opposed to just wine and beer. I walked in and was promptly handed a glass of Rockstar and SoCo, which was surprisingly good but really strong. We stayed there until about two and then decided we better go home if we were going to make it through today; the plan is to go to three birthday parties (12pm, 3pm, 11pm) and see the SF symphony (8pm). I should probably go and take a nap.
