The 2017 Working Not Working Blissfully Ignorant Holiday Party!
WORKING NOT WORKING
Wasn't 2017 the greatest year ever? That was rhetorical. It totally was. So much fun and positive stuff happened and nothing was terrifyingly unhinged about it. We all felt safe and well-represented, without any notes of division or animosity. At least that's how everyone felt when they entered our "Blissfully Ignorant Holiday Party!", held at Schimanski on December 13th in New York. Anyone who has attended our parties knows that they're lawless free-for-alls. But this year we had one rule: Leave all the negative noise at the door and coat-check the chaos. As a result, there was enough drinking and dancing and positivity to make it as much a mental-health-day party as a holiday party. It was great to see all the usual suspects plus a bunch of new faces.
We'd like to thank a few sponsors who helped all of us plan this much-needed escape. A huge shout-out to our friends at Squarespace, as well as McCann, Firstborn, and FlexFit. Also, big thanks to 19th & Park for capturing the event with the video above, Boooth.tv for providing the party-essential photo booth, and Mount Gay Rum and Lion Dandelion Tea for the drinks. Lastly, cheers to legendary WNW Member Zipeng Zhu for killing it on the party's visual design. Here's to 2018. What the hell took you so long?
