Favourite “at work” memory | 2023 New Year’s Eve. It was pure chaos the 30 minutes before countdown, but a bunch of regulars, friends and family were there and when midnight rang it was truly a beautiful moment where all the staff stopped and celebrated for a short moment. I was happy to celebrate the new year with my second family.
