Yesterday, at around 11:30am, our office was bombarded with a delectable surprise. Our friends over at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa arranged for a 60s themed catered lunch in accordance with the 20th anniversary Mad Men themed party that evening. Around noon, the food came: A&W Mama burgers, French fries and onion rings galore. Not only that, but we were also given enough A&W root beer mugs for every llama and a stuffed bear. Needless to say, our board room was inundated with the smell of mouth-watering, but totally forbidden, trans-fats for the rest of the day.
As it turns out, Elizabeth, our office manager, had been arranging this for a week with Claudia from Ojai so that Larry would be completely caught off guard. “I smell French fries,” he said at one point while being distracted by Allison. But by that point the food had already been set up and Larry was bedazzled by the site of glistening grease. Thanks to everyone from Ojai Valley Inn & Spa who helped prepare this delicious midday guilty pleasure. It was a great way to kick off the 20th anniversary celebrations.
