Heal thyself.
Classy colleagues,
Strong work at last week's Thirsty Thursday! A good time was had by all and word on the street is that we CRUSHED a $500 bar tab within 19 minutes. This upcoming week, I'm pumped about learning some massage "self-care" techniques (does that sound dirty?) at the DukeWELL seminar on Thursday. This weekend, get excited about the Dragon Boat festival on Saturday!
Free zongzi??? YES PLEASE.
