Team night: The Brass Tap

We gathered at The Brass Tap in Waterford Lakes for our team night yesterday. They had a great special: 50 cent wings! It would be wrong to not take advantage of this deal. With a team full of the best people you could find, it was nothing but a good time! As a team, we must work hard to get great rewards such as team nights. Thanks for coming out everyone!

Here are some photos!

Desi’s birthday

At MCO Orlando, we love celebrating how great our employees are, especially when it’s their birthdays. On January 22, it was our very own Desi’s birthday. We decided to gather at Miller’s Ale House to celebrate our extremely hard working and funny man’s birthday. It’s safe to say that lots of fun was had. The energy was great and games were played while we ate and drank to our fills.
