Spigot, Inc. Takes Dave & Busters By Storm

Spigot, Inc. employees never pass up an opportunity to have a good time, and last night we all left work around 3:3o and headed over to the new Dave & Busters in Fort Myers. Dave & Busters didn’t even know what they were in for. This was definitely one of the most successful happy hours we’ve had yet! Almost every single Spigot, Inc. employee came to play. Spigot, Inc. got everyone 20$ play cards and got to enjoy tons of apps and drinks on us! Of course – most employees won a ton of prizes and Shakti EVEN hit the jackpot. 

The Spigot, Inc. office is has grown rapidly over the past two years. We now have 70 employees sitting in the Fort Myers office, and there are days that go by where employees don’t even see one another due to our huge space. Happy hours like this are a great way to get everyone out of the office and mingling with employees from other teams that they don’t normally interact with on a daily basis. Spigot, Inc. also REALLY values employee happiness and this is another great way to show our appreciation to our employees and just give everyone a break from the work day to hang out.

Spigot, Inc. Mobile Team Goes to Romania: An Employee’s Story

As most of you probably already know – Spigot, Inc. is across the globe. We are owned by a company based out of Beijing, China, have several offices in the US and another office in Bucharest, Romania. Many Spigot, Inc. employees are fortunate enough to be able to travel to these locations for work purposes (and even extend their trips to see other parts of the world!). This past week our Mobile Team made the long 20 hour journey to work on their product with the Spigot, Inc. Romanian team. Spigot, Inc.’s, Elina Terentevya, documented the whole trip and gave us the run down below!

Elina:

I was fortunate enough to be one of the members of the mobile team to take a trip to Bucharest, Romania to work with our IOS team. While Spigot makes sure our communication is possible through all the technology provided, there is nothing better than meeting and working side by side. After a few take offs and landings, many movies on the plane, lots of laughs, and many many snacks, we were finally there!

 

As we landed we decided to go straight to the office to get started. The Ro team greeted us with open arms and most importantly donuts. I have tasted a lot of donuts in my life, but nothing compared to these. Papanasi, as they are called in Romania, were perfect round spheres, and

exactly what we needed for a quick pick me up before diving right in to work with the team. A perfect Romanian welcome in my opinion.

The evening followed by a team dinner at Grand Café Van Gogh. The café was so unique, with Van Gogh replicas hanging all across the wall painted by local artists, funky umbrellas hanging from the ceiling, and nachos that were out of this world.

I honestly don’t even know where to begin about the food. It never stopped, and each place was better than the last. The bread, the wine, the humus, the baba ganoush, the kabobs, the shawarmas, all the meats, and my personal favorite mamaliga. Everything tasted even better than it looked, if that’s even possible!

Another night we went to a traditional Romanian restaurant, called Hanu’ lui Manuc, we ate, we drank, and we fully embraced the Romanian culture. 2 meters of beer, authentic Romanian food, endless donuts, Moldavian dancers, the Eastern European culture is just something else.

We were also lucky enough, some may not agree with me, to see a fresh snow fall. The snow just kept falling transforming this unique city of Bucharest in to a winter wonderland. Snow balls were made and exchanged. 

Working at Spigot, Inc. gives employees an amazing opportunity to experience different cultures, whether it’s in our own office or travelling abroad.

Spigot, Inc. Tests Out the New Fort Myers Restaurant the Slurping Dragon

Today, a group of Spigot, Inc. girls tested out the new restaurant,The Slurping Dragon, in Fort Myers. Slurping Dragon is a new Ramen/Poke restaurant, and at first we were all a little apprehensive but it did NOT disappoint! Not only do they have awesome ramen soup bowls, they have a “build your own” poke bowl station and a ton of wok bowls. Everyone tried out different things – and you can just tell by the pictures, it was all delicious!

After we ate, we got the opportunity to talk to the owner and found out that he used to cater for us when he owned a different restaurant! It was great catching up with him, AND now have a new restaurant to cater Spigot, Inc.’s free lunch! The owner even told us he would hand deliver the meals himself. 

Overall – the Spigot, Inc. consensus is, we love the Slurping Dragon, will definitely be back AND recommend anyone reading this should try it out! Check out their menu!

Spigot, Inc. Celebrates Chinese New Year at ASW with Las Vegas!

Spigot, Inc. not only got the awesome opportunity to attend Affiliate Summit West this past week, BUT we also got to ring in the Chinese New Year! During all of the conferences in Las Vegas this week – the hotels on the strip decked OUT their lobby’s and restaurants with all kinds of Chinese New Year decor and the Cosmopolitan (Where most Spigot, Inc. employees stayed) had a huge celebration in the lobby. The celebration consisted of the famous Chinese “Lion Dance” – which is intended to bring luck and prosperity. Along with the dance; the performers participated in the “plucking of the greens,” where the performers picked up red envelopes of cash attached to green lettuce, and spit out the torn up leaves to signify the distribution of wealth and prosperity. After the Lion Dance – we then got to experience the “Dragon Dance,” which is also meant to bring luck and prosperity during the celebrations. This dance consisted of a large group of people carrying around a giant dragon and doing specific dance moves. It was really exciting for Spigot, Inc. to learn more about the Chinese Culture and Celebrate all the way from the US!

During the conference, a few Spigot, Inc. employees even got to try Dim Sum “Soup dumplings” at the Chinese Restaurant, Lemongrass and see all the decor in the Aria as well. The Aria had “Year of the Rat” decor everywhere. Every Chinese New Year a Zodiac sign is appointed and this year is the “Year of the Rat.” In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children. They are also considered clever, quick thinkers; successful, but content with living a quiet and peaceful life. 

Spigot, Inc. really values and appreciates our relationship with our parent company, Genimous Technologies.  it was awesome to have the opportunity to celebrate the Chinese New Year in Las Vegas at our conference!

If you want to be a part of a company that appreciates other cultures, promotes travel and all around employee happiness – Spigot, Inc. would like to speak with you!
