HitThatDive's Office Christmas Party 2014

“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”  Winston S. Churchill

How Far Did My $20 Go?: Regular readers of HitThatDive know that is one question I try to answer in every bar review.  To some, $20 is little more than a round of drinks.  And to others, a spare $20 is all that's leftover at the end of the week to provide things like food and clothes for their children.

So, what if I were to tell you that for a mere $20 you can be part of one hell of a party on December 14th, while at the same time, helping to fund the HitThatDive elves (you can be one too if you're at this year's party) as we prepare to surprise area shoppers all over Omaha by picking up the tab for everyday people in local stores just as they're getting ready to pay.

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”  Charles Dickens

Come ready to PARTY.
You see, we've decided that the greatest positive impact that we can make in our community this year is to "pay it forward" to people that are going about their daily lives that may need just a little shot of good cheer right in the arm.

The Idea: It all started last year when I was bemoaning the fact that I've never been to a good old fashioned office party like I'm sure they had in the 50's. You know, the kind where there was booze, and mistletoe, and singing, and laughter, and overindulgence, and...well...a place where friends greeted each other with a hearty (and now politically incorrect) Merry Christmas!

Yet, that has never once panned out for me.  Hell, even Ebenezer Scrooge partied like a rock star every Christmas Eve at good old Fezziwig's...well, before he became a real dickhead.  So last year, with the help of The Village Bar, we threw a party for a 100 or so people and had the time of our lives.  Oh yeah, and did I mention that we raised more than $3,000 for local families?

Bad Santa will be there again...will you be there too?

“My mother told me that life isn't always about pleasing yourself and that sometimes you have to do things for the sole benefit of another human being. I completely agreed with her, but reminded her that that was what blow jobs were for.”  Chelsea Handler

The Party:  On December 14 at 1:00 PM, and then again at 5:00 PM, we are throwing a good old fashioned, KICK ASS, Office Christmas party bigger and better than last year's at The Village Bar in Ralston.  There will be food, booze, music, fun, merriment, Bad Santa, prizes, free shirts, free stuff, friends, photocopiers, and most importantly...an opportunity to spread Christmas cheer all over the Omaha area.

What You Get: For your $20 donation you get access to a private party at The Village Bar.  A special edition HItThatDive Christmas shirt (only available to people registered for the party)  Drink specials. Chances to win hundreds of dollars in gift certificates to local bars. Ugly sweater contest. The now famous "Excuse Me, May I Hold Your Fruitcake"game. Christmas TV show trivia contest. The G-MAN as your DJ and emcee. And a most importantly, a chance to spend an afternoon with some of the best people in town who want to make our community a better place to live.

Everyone was looking festive last year!

How it Works: Just like last year, the first party (Bloody Mary Edition) will be from 1:00-4:00 and the second one (Harvey Wallbanger Edition) will be from 5:00-8:00.  Regardless of which one you attend, there will be the same amount of fun, swag, games, people, fun, and good cheer at both of them.  Or, live on the edge and sign up for both...just remember to take Monday off before you leave the office for the weekend.

That elf on the left won a huge salami last year. For reals!

Plus, knowing how hectic everyone's schedule can be at this time of year, offering two times gives everyone a little more flexibility in ensuring that you can make it.  So, unless you're out of town, there are no excuses for not attending!  Well, other than being lazy...but even HitThatDive can't blame you for that excuse.

So now I know what you're saying..."But Scuba Steve, how do I get MY ticket to attend?!"  Funny you should ask...both parties are each roughly 50% sold out...so if I were you, I'd click this link right ==============>>>>>>>>>> HERE...CLICK ME! to make sure you don't miss out on all the fun this year.

I hope that you'll take some time and join me at The Village Bar with the always fun and entertaining HitThatDive crowd.  There's never a dull moment when we're all together.

Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends. Clarence Oddbody, AS2

Merry Christmas.
