we like to party

no holiday season would be complete without our ban.do holiday party and secret santa gift exchange.
this year we met at the studio to exchange gifts (note amazing glitter purse, jen scored! thanks santa), and nibble on a delicious
and beautiful gingerbread house, care of our publicists. . . oh, and sip on champagne, of course.
then we got the group together and headed down the street to escuela taqueria.  if you live in l.a. and haven’t been, well shame on you.
this place is good! but be sure to bring your own booze.  we brought some pink champagne and created cocktails right at the table
just by adding the bubbly to their hibiscus flower and watermelon juice.  YUM.
all in all the night was a huge success.  everyone went home with full bellies and arms full of fun gifts.
hip hip hooray for 2011 and now on to 2012!
