At the height of the holiday season, everyone is a flutter with loaded social agendas. From office parties to potlucks to gala dinners, practically every evening holds some sort of celebration.
Timbers Resorts hosted a holiday party last week at the Roaring Fork Club, gathering 60 guests for a heated competition of Jeopardy among the various departments. After dinner, an entertaining round of white elephant took place with a pair of bobbleheaded hunters in a Bronco as the most coveted gift of all. Everyone was clearly in the holiday spirit as they ate, drank and were merry. Mark and Carolyn Regan hosted a holiday party for Regan Construction’s employees, friends and family members last Saturday night. The benevolent hosts have held the annual affair at their Old Snowmass home for the past three years. They demonstrated their culinary talents once again with a feast of Dungeness crab, oysters on the half shell and beef tenderloin grilled to perfection.
As guests arrived throughout the evening, the pile of gifts grew for the highly anticipated gift exchange. Often times at a holiday party, the gift exchange is comprised of gag gifts and genuine gifts. For this party, however, humor was the antidote with items such as a flamingo costume, lighted penguin lawn ornament, and a ceramic cup with “pimp” spelled out in glitter. Stealing was permitted, though not every gift drew everyone’s fancy. By the end of the night, the pimp cup had been stolen a couple of times, the penguin made several rounds and the flamingo costume remained with its original owner.
