Being a freelancer or working from home has its advantages. No commute, the ability to wear your pajamas all day if you feel like it and the excitement of never knowing when your paycheck is coming keeps you hungry (literally and figuratively). One place your suit-wearing friends beat you though is the annual Christmas party, where they get to watch the boss get liquored up and try to sex the interns. Last year, we helped out all you officeless folks get the corporate holiday party experience, and this year we’re happy to say the No Office Holiday Party is back!
We got tanked with our pals at Brooklyn Based, Fucked in Park Slope, the skint and we decided that we had such a good time last year, we’re doing it again. So on Dec. 20 at Littlefield come party with us!
Aside from a bevy of the most attractive bunch of independent contractors in the Tri-state area, we’ll also have comedy set from Daily Show regular and Night Train conductor Wyatt Cenac, who will also read some of your most horrifying work stories. After that, there’ll be karaoke courtesy of Karaoke Killed the Cat and then the spectacle of writers and graphic designers dancing, brought to you by Steve Reynolds, mastermind behind Party Like It’s 1999.
We’ve also got a Sexy Santa photo booth courtesy of Bibi Booth, spiked punch, mistletoe and other surprises. Your friends with office jobs are welcome too, of course, if they want to see how the other half parties. Which, speaking of office stuff, if anyone out there has a copy machine we could borrow, get at us. It has nothing to do with butts, we promise.
No Office Holiday Party, December 20, 7:30pm, Littlefield (622 Degraw Street, Gowanus), $6 advance, $8 at the door.
