Every year masterful pizza chefs swarm Seattle for an event that will dominate conversations for months to follow. A word that comes up again and again to describe this flash-mob-like fête is "epic." We fondly refer to it as the Pagliacci Pizza Crew Holiday Party, but that's just a guise to dissuade crashers. More elaborate than any Gatsby soirée, this annual event is the stuff of legend.
As our musical guest dj100proof tweeted:
If last year is any indication, it's about to get saucy at this Pagliacci party & I don't mean marinara. Holiday party season is the best. — dj100proof (@dj100proof) December 17, 2013
While past parties have seen us bobbing for smelt and carving Spam, we kept it classy this year. Primed with the Prom Night theme, our crew traded their aprons for black-tie attire. Queen Anne Shift Leader Claire Branch and McMahon crew member Anthony Positano reigned as Prom Queen and King.
We partied, danced and limboed the night away to dj100proof's jams, gathered for our annual crew photos, and raffled off some incredible prizes.
