You know what I always say — or maybe you don’t, but here it is — a team that eats together, stays together.
The members of Web Communications have a wide range of interests, but one thing we all love is food. For many of us, Fridays mean Friday Lunch. When recently going over our values as a department, Friday Lunch came up, and it was only a half-joking suggestion.
We love heading out to patronize local establishments, whether it’s the old dependables like Not Your Average Joe’s or Bertucci’s, or maybe something farther afield like Jose’s Mexican restaurant in Cambridge, or something smaller and down the street like the Teele Square Cafe. Sometimes we talk about work, or maybe something non-work related on the web, but usually we’re just hanging out, relaxing — and usually laughing.
During the rest of the week, there will usually be one or two Dunkin’ or Starbucks runs, which provide a nice opportunity to step out of the office, grab a pick-me-up, and recharge the batteries for the afternoon stretch.
Our eating is not limited to outside of the office. We usually don’t turn down any excuse to brighten a meeting with some cupcakes (the Web Comm treat of choice, it seems — we love the ones from Lyndell’s, though Arthur’s makes good ones, too), or perhaps the much beloved Two-Bite Brownies from Whole Foods in a pinch. Yes, Web Comm most definitely has a sweet tooth. You should see the eyes widen and the drool run when someone brings in fresh baked treats from home.
Mmmmm… the downside of writing a blog post about food — now I’m hungry!
