Tuesday is normally a very special day for us at Vox: it’s our weekly team lunch, which we’ve come to lovingly call Bertuesdays. Originally, this was a weekly Bertucci’s pizza delivery, but it has since expanded to include a variety of delicious food.
With last week falling on America’s birthday, our awesome office manager, Lauren Williams, treated us to an incredible Fourth of July Bertuesday, which included a variety of the best all-American food D.C. has to offer: half-smokes, burgers, chili, potato salad, and corn muffins from Ben’s Chili Bowl; ribs and chicken from Hill Country; fresh fruit and veggies; and fried chicken, crab cakes, baked beans, and mac & cheese made by Lauren herself.
She also went the extra mile and appropriately decorated our office in red, white and blue.
For dessert, senior accountant Katie Richman (who you may know as the mastermind behind Vox Baking) contributed delicious Lofthouse-style frosted sugar cookies. “They’re the homemade version of the big soft frosted sugar cookies found at nearly every grocery store,” Katie said, without the “unpronounceable mystery ingredients.”
All in all, it was a pretty fun day for our team, even for those of us who weren’t born in the United States, such as yours truly, seen here with support manager Cory Williams (you can probably guess who’s who).
Of course, none of this would have been possible without Lauren’s hard work. Thanks, Lauren!
