An inauguration is usually the first party in a new environment. But we already threw the #OMR19 SIDE EVENT with 150 guests in our office before the inauguration. Now we wanted to celebrate our new working environment in a smaller group. Each one of us had a favourite person of our choice with them.
Since all our everyday heroes should have been present, the schedule-making went completely according to the consensus principle. After some back and forth we finally decided for 21 June 2019. Our working student from Tübingen even traveled to Hamburg exclusively for the inauguration. For the sake of the environment, she rejected the private jet and travelled by train. The rest of us decided to go by train or bicycle due to the short distance.
For the inauguration there should be something special to eat, which is why we decided for the extremely good restaurant Salt & Silver. After everyone had gathered in the office, we set off for the five-minute walk to the restaurant with a great view of the harbour. Thanks to our little previous history with Salt & Silver each of us got a delicious cocktail on the house. Thanks for that! This time we decided for the Levante kitchen. But next time we will try the Latin American cuisine, I promise! There were delicious mezze, hummus, fattoush, taboulé, zaatar and delicious cocktails. We still dream about it today…
With a full stomach we returned to Hans-Albers-Platz, where our office is located in a small backyard next to an Irish pub called Molly Malone. Since there is always a party in the backyard in the evening, we had to make our way through the crowd. Upstairs there was a FIFA tournament, party games, Beer Pong and just a whole lot of fun all night long. Our office was duly inaugurated. It was certainly not the last party.
