Today I was invited to go to lunch with a group of co-workers. They have an outing every Friday, in a ritual they dubiously dubbed, "Burger Fridays." The tradition was originally established as a way to rate various burger joints in the surrounding area, but these cool cats have slowly turned it into an all-office event.
These days, they have an open invitation and choose the lunch spot through discussion each Friday (now not necessarily a burger shop.) In addition, the Friday lunch crew is about as diverse as the office could get; Artists, Programmers, Writers, and more. It's a good time for each of the departments to swap stories and socialize.
Community is something HI prides itself on, and it's always nice to see such a motley bunch bond over burgers and fries. Count me in next week.
