Hey all! Let me tell you about my latest temp assignment. Anyway, it was for a group that supplies bartenders for parties and events. For this job, I needed a whole new outfit: black shirt, black tie, black pants and black shoes. I manages to find all that at my local Target. Anyway, the first night I was working this assignment, I was at a party on Friday at San Francisco's Old Mint building. A company called Zendesk was having their holiday party there. It had a "Gatsby" theme, and a lot of people dressed in 1920's style. I was serving as a busser, clearing away glasses and beer bottles. It was a pretty lavish affair: it was catered, with live music and chocolate fondue fountains. Downstairs where the Mint's vaults were, casino games were set up. They called that area the "Speakeasy." It was a fun evening, but things got crazy here and there. Some glasses got broken, even before the party started. While the bartenders were setting up outside, they had some boxes of glasses on the pavement, and a driver backed into them! And people drank a lot there! So we had to clear away lots of drinks and such.
Then yesterday, before my second night of the assignment, the Cartoon Art Museum was holding another Sketch-a-Thon to promote The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. I was one of the artists drawing sketches for people. We didn't have a big turnout, but I had a good time. I ended up drawing dragons more often than anything else. The event was supposed to last until 5, but the other artists had to leave early. I ended up leaving about 4:30. Just as well, so I could make it to the assignment.
After that, it was helping out at another holiday party. This one was at a place called SF80. I forget which company was throwing this party. Anyway, it was a smaller one than the one at the Old Mint, so we weren't as busy. But we still had quite a bit to do! This party had a DJ, and people danced. Working those parties was certainly better than stripping drywall!
