Every month we have a company outing, which usually consists of all the team members getting together after work and doing something fun and new as a group. Company outings not only give us a chance to see what great things Memphis has to offer, but it also brings us closer as a team and reinforces our cohesive work environment.
For January, we decided to try out Five In One Social Club in Memphis, which has been described as “Kindergarten for Grown Folks.” Since Broadway Pizza is just down the block, we grabbed a few pizzas from there, and headed down to Five in One.
Broad Ave is a very cool up-and-coming street that hosts a small number of small galleries, gift shops, and food/drink places. The owner of Five in One told us that the neighboring shop owners are warm and friendly, and welcomed her when she first moved her shop in.
One little helper even came out of her shop to greet us as we strolled by.
We grabbed a few pizzas from Broadway Pizza, and stopped in The Cove to google at the terrific eye candy decor.
If you haven’t been to The Cove yet – do yourself a favor and drop in. They have live music, karaoke, and the nautical-themed decor is pretty impressive.
Finally, we made it to our main destination for the night – Five in One Social Club.
In the front of the shop are hand-made gifts and goodies from local artists, all available for purchase.
The shop itself boasts hand-painted murals, quirky signs and shirts, and enough arts-and-craft supplies to start your own glitter army.
For our craft – we were going to make leather i.d. bracelets. The owner of the shop was our instructor, and she patiently took us through the steps and helped us along the way.
Everyone’s bracelt came out great, and everyone had an absolute blast!
HUGE thank you to Alice at Five in One Social Club for getting us all set up, and for leading our craft party. That outing was a complete success, and we had a total blast!
