May was an incredibly busy time in the Lajollacooks4u kitchen, and we closed out the month hosting two large team-building events!
Our first group to visit was Illumina, and this was the company’s SIXTH department to join us for a fun-filled team-building event.
Thirty members of its business development team arrived at our venue, ready to whip up some delicious creations and engage in some friendly competition in the process. Donned in their custom-made aprons, the group split off into three teams after participating in a series of icebreakers and then assembled into their assigned stations.
Fun was had and memories were made, as each team member either helped prepare their station’s delicious menu items or participated in the infomercial presentations.
Alex, who coordinated the entire event, wrote, “Lajollacooks4u is the perfect place to hold your team event! Jodi and her crew went out of their way to accommodate our large corporate group of 30 adults.” He added, “From the design of the activities to the special dietary needs, we laughed and had fun – it was a fabulous evening and I would highly recommend Lajollacooks4u to any company for a team event!”
We then hosted 40 team members from the Art of Problem Solving for our signature Tacos + Tequila event! Forty of its team members gathered at a private home in Poway to celebrate the retirement of co-worker Dave Patrick.
After participating in a series of games, the group split off into four teams and began creating their assigned tacos and delicious tequila cocktails! Menu items consisted of Beef and Chicken Asada Tacos with homemade sauces, Black Bean and Corn Salad and locally sourced Ceviche and Guacamole. Last, but not least, however, was our tequila bar – where we introduced specialty Mango Nectar Mojito’s, Cucumber and Mint Tequila Fresheners and Watermelon Margaritas – all which were a huge hit!
Everyone had a great time, and Dave Patrick was given a send-off to be remembered.
