Perks of the Job.

Just got back from the Jazz game. jazz04 Don’t go that often, but tonight was Chevron employee night.  Peterson Oil (our  Chevron’s parent company) has a suite in the Delta Center* and they invited half of the crew from each of their storesjazz01 to join them in their suite.  The other half gets to go next month.

It was a blast.  Not that the game was that exciting, they played the New Jersey Nets, who have, now, lost 39 out of 41 games.  There were a couple of really cool plays I got to see though, one where Boozer stole the ball from the Nets while he was sitting on the floor.  Most of the fun was hanging out jazz02with the people I work with, and being in the suite.  We had a great view, at the table where  I ate I could watch the game on the floor, on the jumbo-tron and on TV.  Sensory overload.  The food, which was not standard basketball arena fare, was not only good but also supplied by Peterson Oil, as was the open bar.  Which is why it was a good thing I got a ride down there with an jazz03employee who doesn’t drink.

But other than a few minutes here and there of watching the game, most during the last quarter, I got the chance to sit around and b.s. with the people I work with and work for.  All in all, an excellent way to spend a Saturday night. 




*I still don’t think of it as the Energy Solutions Arena.

Yeah, weird. But to my credit, most of the post was about the food and the people I was hanging out with.

I haven't paid to go to either a pro basketball or football game in a long time now. In fact, it's been a couple years since I even paid to go to a pro baseball game. Gifts and unused tickets from parents and coworkers and associates are wonderful things.

And the suites--those are the best! Glad you got this experience.
