2017 Halloween Pumpkin Contest

4th Annual Office Pumpkin Decorating Contest and Halloween Festivities


It was another spook-tacular Halloween here at V2Works. We started the week off with a friendly pumpkin decorating contest. You could tell the artistic juices were flowing with entires ranging from a sugar skull to the “happy chocolate swirl” (poop) emoji. On Halloween morning, laughter ensued as each person walked into work, each costume better [...]


McMenamins MEHH


On the last Friday of every month, the V2Works crew gets together for a casual happy hour at one of the local watering holes. The official event name is Month End Happy Hour, or as we winkingly refer to it, MEHH. (We do love a good acronym!) We closed out February this past Friday with [...]


New Year Kickoff at Beardslee Public House for MEHH


2017 is off to a busy start here at V2Works. Our first Month End Happy Hour (MEHH) outing of the new year was just what the team needed to let off some steam. We celebrated our January MEHH, at the Beardslee Public House in Bothell, with jokes and delicious appetizers, including poutine with veal gravy, brussel sprouts, crab artichoke dip, [...]


Hollywood Tavern MEHH 2.0


You know that a place is an instant favorite when the V2Works team unanimously decides to revisit our prior MEHH location. We don’t normally do that, instead always finding the adventure of new discoveries more exciting. But Hollywood Tavern in Woodinville was far too enticing to not return to ASAP, what with their deliciously tempting appetizers [...]


Cold Snap


As a Seattle native it’s rare to have such a long streak of crisp cold weather. But it gives the opportunity for some amazing photos! These views are of the majestic Mt. Si from a delightfully frigid walk around the frozen waters of the Old Mill Pond in Snoqualmie. An ancient Native American prometheus legend [...]


Holiday Party 2016


The full V2Works team celebrated the joy of the holiday season with a lovely catered dinner at the home of Troy and Kathleen! Spouses joined in for the bounty of food and drinks, capped off by an epic battle of pool and ping pong. It was a good time for all as we celebrated the [...]


Hollywood Tavern MEHH


The V2Works team closed out the spooky yet great month of October with one of the most fun experiences in MEHH (month-end happy hour) history. We trekked over to the Hollywood Tavern in beautiful Woodinville, where we discovered that they have one of the greatest menus of delectables! We chomped on chile tots, cajun wings, Korean [...]


3rd Annual Office Pumpkin Decorating Contest


The only rule for our pumpkin decorating contest is that it must include one of the company-supplied mini-pumpkins or gourds. Other than that simple rule, creativity can run amuck! The Brandgineers at V2Works continued to push the boundaries in our 3rd Annual Halloween contest – running the gamut from the spooky to the music-oriented to [...]


Month End Happy Hour (MEHH!) at Beardslee Public House


It’s always hard to tell how the weather might turn out on a September 30th in the Northwest.  It can be rainy and 50, or we can get lucky with warm and sunny conditions.  V2Work’s MEHH (Month End Happy Hour) delivered the latter this time! We took full advantage, enjoying our drinks and multiple appetizers [...]
