There are few things in life as rewarding as being able to watch a baseball game in the middle of the week, in the middle of the day while knocking back a few cold ones when you’re supposed to be at work. And what makes this day even better, is when it’s with your fellow team members of Perfect Paver Co. This midday, midweek game is called a “Business Man’s Special” or a “Getaway game”. It’s the tradition of enjoying a baseball game when you should technically be at work. A day to sort of play hooky and allow yourself to enjoy the fruits of your labor. You watch the game, make some friends in the stands, crack some jokes, and enjoy the day outside all while still making it home in time for dinner.
This is exactly what the Ohio team at Perfect Paver Covdid on Wednesday, July 21st. It was a special team-building day where the employees could relax, get to know each other, and enjoy a break from routine while growing and bonding as a team. “There were a lot of ideas thrown around, but it was Mark and Katie who really wanted to spoil the staff,” said Leah. And this is precisely what happened. The Perfect Paver team was treated to a special day watching the Cincinnati Reds play the New York Mets.
The day began in a very special way. They all met up at the office to enjoy the gender reveal of Marissa’s baby. The surprise was hidden in a very beautiful and delicious cake, and as it was cut, it revealed a baby boy would be the newest member of the Perfect Paver Co team. It was a great start to the day. The team was then picked up in style by an elaborate party bus. This allowed everyone to sit back, relax and have a blast on the way to the game. The bus picked up a few more employees and they were on their way. Not only was this the most spectacular mode of transportation, but they had a super special guest DJ. Mark had meticulously put together a special mix of songs completely tapered to the experience and everyone loved the choices. There was even an epic dance-off between Mary and Scott.
Everyone was escorted to the private suite which was located behind home plate in the left outfield. This suite was a one of kind experience for everyone involved. Not only were the views exceptional, but they had multiple big screen T.V.’s to watch for a different perspective on the game. The suite included a bartender, buffet lunch, private bathroom, and all of the important snacks you require at a baseball game. If you needed a break from the suite, you could walk out to the stands and sit outside to socialize with the fans. This was a very special experience for everyone, including Mary, “I’m a huge baseball fan and it was cool to have the suite. We were able to all spend time together while watching the game and that was my favorite part.”
Unfortunately, the Reds lost, but the day was a definite win. The team enjoyed a much-deserved day of fun while getting to know each other more, spending quality time together and bonding as the family they have become. The team was grateful for the experience and they went to work the next day feeling refreshed and motivated. It was truly a Perfect day for the Perfect Paver Co team and they did all this while still making it home in time for dinner.
