Four delicious ways to change up your holiday corporate event

We agree: It’s hard to believe another year has almost gone by and it’s time again for the office holiday celebration.

If it feels like you just did this – and just did the same thing for another year – find some inspiration in these ideas our friends at Minervas gave us for creating corporate celebrations that feel fresh and still taste great.

Holiday lunch

Not that Minervas doesn’t deliver an amazing dinner party, but if it’s your team at work you might consider lunch instead.

What about booking a team lunch – the salad bar never disappoints – and surprising the staff with Minervas gift cards so they can return with family or friends?

Minervas also will develop custom menus for any group event, so ordering becomes easy and you can predict your costs.

AV advantage

Did you know the lower level of Minervas comes with full audio-visual capabilities?

Especially if your group is on the larger size, this space is for you.

Consider a brief presentation on your company’s achievements for 2018 and plans for 2019.

Or throw an event to connect with clients and update them on your business.

Minervas can offer a menu for guests or create a delicious array of appetizers. The lower level is served by its own bar, so your beverage needs are easily met.

Potluck hero

Perk up the traditional office holiday potluck with a quick call ahead to Minervas. You can walk in with customer-favorite tomato zucchini soup for the office and any of the specialty salads on the salad bar.

Get this: They will even package up the epic cheese spread for a group.

Just let them know when you want to pick it up, and prepare to become the hero of your next potluck.

Paramount social

OK, let’s be real: Most people could make a massive list of things they would rather do on weekends during the holiday season that doesn’t include a work party.

Here’s what you do instead. Bring your group to Paramount Studio Cocktails & Food, attached to Minervas, on a weeknight. You can’t reserve the space itself, but if you give the staff a heads-up your group is coming, they can make sure you’re taken care of. They can even bring in live music for you for a fee.

Plus take advantage of the happy-hour specials from 3 to 9 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. Flatbreads and burgers are half-off; appetizers and drinks are discounted.

Do a gift exchange, invite your clients or invite all those friends and family you’d rather not host in your home.

Plus, it’s a quick walk over to Minervas for anyone who wants to continue the party at dinner.

Small groups: You can book the back room of the Paramount anytime. It comfortably seats 10 and includes a television.
