There's just something about sharing a meal together, isn't there? Whether the occasion is Christmas or Thanksgiving, a birthday or a wedding, there's something powerful and intimate about gathering around a table with family and friends. That's why we especially enjoy sharing a celebratory meal with the Apolis team at the end of the year, reflecting back on 2017 and looking forward to what's ahead in the presence of people we consider not simply co-workers, but friends.
This year, Apolis' LA team gathered together at Winsome in Echo Park on December 5th. Our Sales, PR, Design, eCommerce, and Wholesale teams were in attendance — many of whom are people we work with remotely and don't get to necessarily see in person regularly. These people were what made the evening such a sweet time, especially amid the craziness of our city and the busyness of life. And, may we say, the food was great — the folks at Winsome really know what they're doing.
Not only did we want to say thank you to the Apolis team for all of their hard work this year, but we also wanted to thank you, as an Apolis supporter. Your support enables us to seriously invest in artisan communities (such as the Saidpur co-op), and we're excited to continue doing so in 2018.
