Trapped In A Room With A Zombie

March 24th, 2015 · No Comments


Nitya & Steph getting psyched!


Real names are not required.

A few weeks ago the UX team and Visual Design team got together for an after-hours outing. We were split into two groups and then each group was trapped in a room with a zombie (and a mad professor). The room was filled with furniture and desks and drawers and cabinets and toolchests (many locked) as well as a lot of random looking stuff with odd numbers, clues and letters on them. And there was a zombie! A ZOMBIE chained to the wall. Every five minutes the chains came out another foot and if the zombie touched you, you were out.


Back: Ronald, Rob, Ben, Nick, Me, Steph. Front: Anandi, Nitya, Katie, Irene. Plus, the mad professor.


Act like a zombie!

The goal was to use teamwork! to figure out the clues and to unlock the combo lock that unlocks the key that unlocks the briefcase clue that unlocks the doorkey. Or something like that. All while dodging A ZOMBIE. You had one hour to get out of the room, basically. Our team did it. The other team? Not so much.

Afterwards we went to Exchequer, where Scott promptly ordered 20 Fireballs to take the edge off getting chased by A ZOMBIE.

Last week we went to Aria for lunch for Restaurant Week. My coworkers and I were over there a couple years ago for Restaurant Week and I think I liked the food better this time. The onion soup was SO good.. I was talking about it at home and Dallas ended up making soup for us at home.. so I scored twice on that!

Isobar* Summer Event

This is not Oak Street Beach! After our annual meeting this year, we were supposed to head to the beach. The weather was so bad on Thursday and was predicted to be the same on Friday, so Plan B (roof top – with retractable roof at American Junkie) was activated. Of course, that means that Friday was a beautiful, sunny day. It was so humid, though, after so much rain on Thursday, I was glad to be inside.

As always, it was nice to hang out with all my work friends, not in the work setting. I came home early (before 8 p.m.!) because Makai was sick, but it was probably for the best, the way everyone was doing shots of fireball and tequila like it was going out of style! Great night though. Fun day.

*Also note that we are officially Isobar, not Roundarch and not Roundarch Isobar!
